England Tourist Guide


England has an overwhelming array of options for the traveler. From historic towns and multicultural cities to striking countryside and the ubiquitous country pub, there are numerous experiences to be had. The country boasts a well-established boating industry, and although larger cruise liners do dock at major ports along the coastline of England, the country is best explored from the inside, along the country's vast network of inland waterways.

For the traveler, one of the main attractions is the capital, London, located on the River Thames. This city is a multicultural melting pot that combines historical palaces and monuments with cutting-edge modernity in art and architecture. For those looking to escape to nature, areas such as the Lake District, Cornwall and the Yorkshire Dales offer green landscapes, mountains and lakes, the perfect recipe for relaxation.

Many of the cities and natural beauty can be explored from the water. The UK has a large network of waterways and a well-developed barging and river cruising industry. Sailing though the waterways of the UK offers a chance to sail serenely though beautiful lush landscape, interspersed with historic villages and towns. Travelers can choose to explore famous rivers such as the Thames and the Severn, and pass though historic towns and cities such as Shakespeare's birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon; the university towns of Cambridge and Oxford; and the ancient Roman remains in the city of Bath. No matter which journey you choose, each one will provide you with unique attractions for an unforgettable experience of the United Kingdom.
