England Travel Guide

England is divided into three sections, each with its own unique history, popular cities and fabulous nightlife. There are at least nine cities in England that are the main targets of tourist travel, including London, Brighton, Liverpool, Manchester and Bristol. London, of course, is the first city that comes to mind when travelers consider a visit to England. Icons of the city include the Tower of London and the House of Parliament, but there is much more to London than these often cited buildings. London is alive with history, politics, and art, with attractions including the British Museum, the Tate Modern, the West End Theatre, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Our England travel guide highlights the best places to go in the largest nation in the United Kingdom.

Things Not to Miss in England

Don't restrict your England travel plans to London – England's other cities offer a number of popular tourist destinations, including:

• The Royal Pavilion in Brighton

• The City of Caves in Nottingham

• The Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester

• John Lennon's home in Liverpool (a must for Beatles fans)

• Ferry boats in Bristol

When to Go To England

If you're after a sunny beach vacation, plan to travel to England between June and August. However, relatively mild temperatures year-round mean you can visit England during any season. In winter, London offers many outdoor ice rinks close to other popular locations such as the Tower of London and Winchester Cathedral. In autumn, the entire country is awash in red and yellow as the leaves change.
