England Tourism

Shakespeare may have succumbed to an overdose of patriotism when he referred to England as "This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, this other Eden, semi-paradise". And 21st century England may appear from a distance just like any other country, with its own political scandals and economic crises. But visit this tiny isle just once, and you'll fall prey to its many charms- its history and culture, its natural beauty, its glitter and glamour. Dream destination? Definitely.

With centuries of turbulent history behind it, England is replete with monuments and traditions with roots as far apart as Celtic and Saxon, Roman and Asian. From the ancient megaliths of Stonehenge to the stately medieval castles and manors dotting the countryside; from the gaudy opulence of Brighton's Royal Pavilion to the futuristic Millennium Dome- it's all part of England's history.

Drive through the English countryside- down the windswept Yorkshire dales to the chalk cliffs of Dover; the verdant Cotswolds to the lovely Lake District. Stop on the way for a pint of bitter at a pub; get a quick education while punting down the Cam in Cambridge or exploring Shakespeare territory, Stratford-upon-Avon. Go Beatles-berserk in Liverpool; meander through museums, feast and frolic in the most sizzling cities this side of the Atlantic.

Come to England!

Did you know that the English consume more tea than anybody else in the world and this is more evident with their well known breaks called “tea times”. The phrase that the English use for tea is: ‘Shall I put the kettle on…. Would you like a cuppa’?

Be careful of the three “W’s” when in UK: Women, Wine and Weather. All three are unpredictable!!

The world renowned River Thames that flows through Southern England, has more than 200 bridges and 20 tunnels.

Did you know that the Windsor Castle is often regarded as one of the oldest royal residence in the world that is still being used by a royal family.

There are many rumors about the Windsor Castle which is believed to be haunted by ghosts of King Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth I, King George and Charles I.

French was the official language of England for about 300 years, from 1066 till 1362.
