Warm summers, cool winters.

When to visit:

The summer is most popular. It’s worth knowing that England gets a combination of year-round mild weather and unpredictable rainfall. This means you can visit any time and get some good days, and some wetter ones.

Top Destinations:

Most people will think of London, with Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham Palace, along with a host of musicals at the world-famous west end.

However, there is more to England than the capital. Discover the ancient mysteries of Stonehenge, near Salisbury. Walk through the cobbled streets, and don’t forget to look up. The stunning architecture of historic York rivals anything you get in the capital.

I recommend you trek the footsteps of Alfred Wainwright. He spent 13 years walking through this glorious part of the country. 214 fells in The Lake District are referred to as Wainwrights in honour of his endeavours.

Should the picture-perfect Cornish coast need any addition, you can always wander through the tropical gardens of the Eden Project.
