Visitors on their first trip or their hundredth journey overseas will find England a wonderful place to visit. Even though one may hear languages from all over the globe here, this is partially because the language barrier isn’t an issue for those who know English. Visitors visiting England for their first trip may just be interested in seeing a few of the country’s most famous landmarks, such as Stonehenge, Westminster Abbey, and Knightsbridge in London. They may also wish to stop at a university town. Among the activities tourists may choose to partake in are hiking on the moors, exploring the nooks and crannies of lovely communities, and researching their English ancestry. The top locations to visit in England have something to offer tourists of all interests and backgrounds.

1. The Lake District

The Lake District, England

The Lake District, located in Cumbria in northwest England houses the biggest national park in the U.K. The hilly area is popular for outdoor activities, including hiking and mountain climbing. Specialists estimate that more than 15 million tourists go there annually due to its popularity as a tourist attraction. The park houses Scafell Peak, England’s tallest mountain, and Windermere, the country’s largest lake. Others may take leisurely strolls through the valleys while reflecting on the poetry of William Wordsworth, an author from the 19th century, or ride a steam train through the picturesque area.

2. Saint Ives

Saint Ives, England

St. Ives may have been a fishing village in the past, but it is now Cornwall’s sole port because of its coastal location. You may find Cornwall in the southwestern part of England. This attractive town with a population of approximately 12,000, is a popular vacation destination. In 2010 and 2011, people gave it the title of Best U.K. Seaside Town. To navigate the steep, winding, and cobblestone lanes surrounded by charming buildings that house stores and art galleries, you will need comfortable shoes.

3. Cambridge

Cambridge, England

Cambridge is a historic city tourists may find around 80 kilometers (50 miles) north of London. It is the location of the University of Cambridge, which students rank among the best educational institutions in the world. Locals established it in 1209, and now its students account for over 20 percent of the city’s total population of 123,000. After viewing the university, tourists may take a boat ride on the River Cam, see the Fitzwilliam Museum with its massive collection of antiquities, or stroll over the Mathematical Bridge, which some argue is superior to the bridges in Venice. All of these activities are available nearby.

4. The Jurassic Coast

The Jurassic Coast, England
The Jurassic Coast is a spread of coastline in southern England that stretches from Bournemouth to Exmouth and is a prime location for fossil hunters to make a beeline for. The rocks formed 185 million years ago when the continents were squeezing against one another and moving away from one another. Some museums explain each spot along the road; Charmouth is the greatest location to locate fossils. In addition to looking for fossils, tourists should spend some time strolling along the beaches and exploring the quaint little villages that dot the landscape. When strolling near cliffs, use extreme caution since rocks may sometimes fall from them.

5. Oxford

Oxford, England
One may trace the history of Oxford back to Saxon England when locals referred to the city as Oxenaforda, and it served as a spot where oxen could ford a river. Oxford University, which locals founded in the 12th century, is often considered the world’s oldest institution of higher education conducted wholly in English. In addition to being the county capital for Oxfordshire, this town in southeast England houses the ruins of Norman castles and the Christ Church Cathedral, which combines the functions of a college chapel and a cathedral in one structure. Oxford is a city home to people of many different cultures and backgrounds because students travel from all over the globe to study here.

6. York

York, England
The historic city of York may be where the Rivers Foss and Ouse meet. This city is surrounded by walls and has a wealth of history. Tourists navigating the city on its cobblestone streets may encounter many fascinating attractions vying for their attention. The York Minster is recognized as a prominent building in the city. The extraordinary pieces of art that tourists may find inside this imposing stone church are breathtaking. Clifford’s Tower, a medieval watchtower constructed by William the Conqueror and then reconstructed by Henry III in the 13th century, is an excellent vantage point for viewing a panoramic city.

7. Stonehenge and Avebury

Stonehenge, England
Stonehenge is an ancient structure that tourists may locate in Wiltshire. It is also known as one of England’s most visited attractions. Around 2500 B.C., people of the Neolithic and Bronze Ages began transporting enormous stones from Wales and the Marlborough Downs. It wasn’t until 1600 BC that the locals finished the construction of Stonehenge. We recommend a visit to Stonehenge with a journey to the ancient site of Avebury, located north with an even larger stone circle, fewer restrictions, and fewer visitors.
