England

The largest of the four “home nations” that make up the United Kingdom.  Almost 52 million inhabitants (roughly 84% of the total population of the UK).

England has many outstanding landmarks and sites of interest.  I don’t even know where to start but here are a few notable recommendations to visit for now.

  • Hadrian’s Wall – the Romans built this 87 mile wall to protect their English outpost from northern raiders
  • Stonehenge – the iconic Neolithic and Bronze Age monument; as mysterious as it is famous
  • Walk the streets of London – absorb the history
  • Windsor Castle – the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world and offers an extraordinarily rich and varied day out
  • Peak District National Park – rugged moors and hills which form the northern spine of England
  • South Downs National Park – the gentle rolling chalk downs and coastline over looking the English Channel
