England

Steeped in history dating back at least five-thousand years, England manages to maintain is past in the presence of modern day. Here you’ll find sprawling green pastures and lonely hilltops adorned with castle ruins, mysterious, prehistoric standing stones, medieval cathedrals, royal palaces, and even stone circles having no business sitting in the corner of way out of the way fields. Every picturesque village, seaside town or English city has a story all its own—from royalty to peasants, heroes to villains, the remarkable past is the truthfully legendary. For the adventurous traveler seeking the great outdoors experience, why not trek the almost three-thousand miles of coastline that runs the loop of the country, with pathways the entire way around?

The eccentric blend of authentic attractions beckon in England. Cobbled streets and fairytale spires, bustling docks and world-class museums, Georgian architecture and quirky markets, it’s a head-spinning mix of trend-setting progression and history-carving time capsules of yore.

London

London

It’s a royal feast for the eyes when one arrives in London. Prized landmarks such as the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey lure travelers into their clutches and one cannot help but be fascinated by the glorious architecture, and the regal way this unstoppable city displays it. The skyline is as diverse as the people who live here—21st-century skyscrapers tower over the baroque dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral for instance—and when it’s time for a break from the seemingly endless sights, there are leafy boroughs with river parklands, and lively markets offering vintage fashions, tempting antiques, and purveyors enticing with artisanal goodies.

Amble the brilliant list of museums and galleries, stop in at Harrods for a browse or souvenir, and dine on any kind of cuisine you can think of in this harmonious melting pot of cultures. As the sun sets over the city sights, set your eyes on the bright lights; take in a show at the West End and succumb to the drama of the theater.
