London, England

Your Essential Travel Guide To England


Discover Things To Do In England

From Celtic roots to Norman invasions, and an empire that spanned the world, England has a great deal of history crammed into its modest borders. The culture has absorbed many customs and cuisines over the centuries, but it still has a character all of its own.

England is famed for its climate, but not necessarily for good reasons! Rain is a common feature, but the country also enjoys warm summers and relatively mild winters, with some fantastic seaside towns and resorts for enjoying the sun. Just remember that it’s very changeable, so dress for all weathers.
