As it says in the Rough Guide, "no one enjoys knocking England more than the English", but they do have an awful lot to shout about too. There are beautiful mountain ranges, historic ruins, incredible palaces and precious little coves along its coastline. If the English charm isn't enough to bring you here, then check out these incredible pictures of England to get you booking your next trip.
