Travelling to England solo? – Recommended places to visit…


To many, England evokes images of golden battered fish and chips, roast dinners with giant Yorkshire puddings, Shakespeare and The Beatles. English people are often stereotyped as having a stiff upper lip in times of crisis, a great ability to laugh at themselves, weather obsessed and a ‘cup of tea solves everything’ mindset.

England is one of the countries that forms part of the United Kingdom. Its capital city, London, is the most popular destination tourists flock to but the country is made up of 48 counties that are worth visiting too. Many are easily accessed from London by car or train so, if you are travelling to England solo and time is on your side, it is worth spending time outside of the city as well.
