Best Time to Visit
Well known for its cold and unreliable weather, England is always changing its weather. Autumn and Spring are wonderful seasons to visit the changing nature in parks and woodland. Summer months are meant to be the warmest however sometimes has more rain, and Winter is chilly.
How to get there?
The UK is easily accessible from all over the world. Heathrow and Gatwick are London's main airports with regular flights coming in and out internationally. Other main airports include Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, Stansted, Luton, Bristol and Glasgow.
If flying isn't your thing, then perhaps investigate taking the train. From Paris, Amsterdam, Lyon and Brussels the Eurostar is the best option. It is a quick and easy method of travelling to the UK as you avoid the check-in times at the airport.
In London, the best way to get around is either by bus or underground, also called the tube, walking can also be an option if you enjoy seeing the city by foot. To get to other major cities the train system is efficient and if booked in advance, relatively inexpensive. Simply download the Trainline App or Virgin Trains and plan your journey there.
The other option of course is to hire a car. This option can be cost-effective and fun if you want to have a road trip around the UK. It makes visiting the countryside or seaside much more accessible and will allow you to book accommodation away from the main roads.
When you think of England, the capital is never too far away, so for the most quintessential English experience, reserve a holiday apartment in London. Book a city apartment to stay in whilst exploring the many wonders of the city such as London's iconic national timepiece – Big Ben – as well as the riverside observation wheel – The London Eye.
If you are travelling with your family book a family holiday rental in the city, including accommodation in Bath which has wonderful classical architecture, as well as the only natural hot baths in England. Or choose accommodation in the university cities of Oxford, or a holiday rental in Cambridge, and go punting along the river adjacent to the stunning campuses.
Chillout and Explore the British Countryside
There is nothing quite like exploring the English countryside for its amazing rural escapes. Catch the right season and you will be delighted with what you see, bluebells in woodlands in May or travel back in time to see the stone circles in the Lake District. Staying in a rented house in the countryside is an option or a bed and breakfast will offer a cosy stay. Nowhere showcases the countryside quite like God's Own County, so reserve a holiday cottage in Yorkshire to enjoy the vast organic beauty of this verdant land
Rent a cottage in Cornwall or in Devon and roam along Britain's beautiful shoreline. Head to the Cotswolds if you truly want to enjoy the beauty of nature in this designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Endless footpaths and pubs are dotted around the countryside for you to have a break in or even stay in a local Airbnb.
British Pubs and Culture
When visiting the United Kingdom, visiting a pub should be a priority on your list. Experience the hearty, cosy and local pubs located near your accommodation to embrace the full British feel. Grab yourself a pint and on a Sunday order a traditional roast. This is a typical dish that comes with roast beef, Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes and vegetables and gravy. Rent a self-catered apartment and try to cook a typical dish. Perhaps after a long day of exploring have an afternoon tea in your hotel be sure to try English Breakfast or Early Grey.
