A little country with an illustrious history, England’s dynamic cities, sleepy villages, lush green moorlands and craggy coastlines create a rich cultural and natural landscape. Whether wolfing down tasty seaside fish and chips, downing a pint in one of London’s oldest pubs or stepping into the past at one of the country’s imposing castles or cathedrals, use our map of England below to start planning your trip.

You won’t be short of things to do in this diminutive but diverse country: catch an Elizabethan performance at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, then go for a wander along the Southbank for some of the capital’s most exciting cultural offerings. If you’re keen to escape the city, seek out tiny coves along Cornwall’s Lizard peninsula, where 100ft cliffs and arches of serpentine rock lend a dramatic backdrop to excellent swimming. Or head north: slip through the gates of York and explore a grand medieval city.
