13 MUST VISIT PLACES IN ENGLAND

13 Must-Visit Places in England

England is known around the world mostly for London, football teams, downtown abbey and I dare say, Jane Austen. Being a local, I must admit sometimes I take this fine country for granted, but not more. Here is a list of 13 must-visit places in England, and apologies, it doesn’t contain castles.

Bath

Bath is a quaint little town in the southwest of England famous for the natural hot springs. A city designated the UNESCO World Heritage site with the grandest 18th-century Georgian architectural buildings. It is a city bursting with so much history which dates back to the Roman times.

Bristol

Bristol is the 12th largest city and has been voted as one of the ‘Best places to live’ in England. The city was buzzing with life regardless of the weather and made me want to re-visit.

Cambridge

I lived in Cambridge for over 10 years and absolutely loved it and can’t recommend it enough. Cambridge is known for the top educational institute, the Cambridge University and is located in the Eastern part of England.

Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace, the only non-royal country house to hold the title of the palace and is a monumental country house in Oxfordshire. The palace is located in Woodstock and was designated the UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987. It was built between 1705 and 1722 as a reward to Churchill for the triumph against the French and Bavarian’s. Currently, it is the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough with John Churchill being the 1st Duke.

Oxford

Oxford is now my home and has been for the last 4 years, it is such an enchanting city. Located in central southern England, it is known worldwide for its university composed of 38 colleges.

Lake District

The Lake District is on the highlands in the mountainous region in the Northern region of England. It is an area known most popular in the UK for many holidaymakers. The Lake District is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2017. 

Bury St Edmunds

Bury St. Edmunds is a market town and home of the Green King Brewery in West Suffolk. One of the highlights of the city is the Cathedral and Abbey gardens which are exquisite.

Stonehenge

Stonehenge

The Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument owned by the Crown and part of UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1986. No one knows exactly how the circle came to be and true purpose, it’s still a mystery to be marvelled at. The stones stand at 13 feet each in a ring of standing stones and are regarded as a British cultural icon.

Salisbury Cathedral

Salisbury

Salisbury is a medieval as well as Cathedral city located in Wiltshire Southern part England. Lying only 9 miles away from the Stonehenge, the city is a tourist spot for many visiting South of England.

Plymouth

Plymouth is home to the University of Plymouth and located in the south coast of Devon. It is a city I can not recommend enough, not only is it vibrant it has a history.

Cornwall

Finally, after many years of wanting to visit this beautiful corner of the UK, I finally made it this summer. We visited for my sister’s birthday but our aim was to spend the day chilling on the beach. We did that happily so can’t say much but fellow bloggers can.

Ami of Ami Rose says, Cornwall for the stunning beaches that make you forget you’re in the UK, the gorgeous coastal walks and of course the Cornish pasties 😍

Hayley of Devon Mama says, don’t miss a trip to the Eden Project and the world’s largest captive rainforest. It’s an amazing place to go (and sneakily educational as well!).

Liverpool

All my visits to Liverpool have been either on the train station or hotel visits for work and nothing more. Thankfully, Graeme of Fitness, Food and Travel have some tips of Liverpool. The hidden gem of the Baltic Triangle. The people who are literally a nation within a nation and the history/story of almost every place you visit in the city

Castle Combe

Cotswold

Living in Oxford, I am fortunate to be so close to the Cotswold, a great place to visit. A few years ago I visited Castle Comb, a little quaint town in the Cotswold with a beautiful Manor House. I love it because Steven Speilberg made war horse there and there is a circuit close by. Besides, who wouldn’t want to walk around such a gorgeous looking English town?

Looking at the 13 Must Visit Places in England, it’s easy to see why I love it so much. Besides the Cotswold being outstanding natural beauty, the rest of the country has so much to offer. What do you think about these choices, most importantly, which is your favourite? Because as I said, I am definitely biased because I have visited all of these places.

    Stonehenge! If ever I go to England, I would know where to go. And I will ask my friend there to bring me around. This is a dream of ours.

    You’ve got some great places here, and some I’ve never visited! I was just thinking about arranging a trip for my family for December so I think we’ll have to head off to Cambridge again!

    I adore Cornwall and could quite happily live there if we returned from
    Sweden. The vast beaches and open spaces are right up my street. Otherwise I need to explore bath and Cambridge properly one day

    England certainly has some fantastic places, whether it is for the scenery or the architecture, there are so many. Loads of locations ideal for days out or for holidaying.
