All about England

When to visit

The only thing guaranteed about England’s weather is that summer is warmer than winter—and rain is always possible. July through August brings comfortable average highs of 73°F (23°C), but this season also brings big crowds. March through May sees temperatures around 64°F (18°C), extremely lush countryside, and quieter sights. From late September through November, fall’s foliage and mild temperatures compensate for regular rain. Summer is festival time, with events like Glastonbury Festival and London’s Trooping the Colour ceremony drawing crowds.

Getting around

Trains are the fastest way of getting between England’s cities. Check schedules online at National Rail and click into regional operators’ websites for tickets. Long-distance buses also cover the country, but they can be slow and patchy. If you want to explore rural England, the best option is to rent a car. In London, however, congestion and a lack of parking can make driving challenging. In the capital, take the London Underground (also known as the Tube), buses, and black cabs.

Traveler tips

Every November 5th, communities across the United Kingdom celebrate Bonfire Night (also known as Guy Fawkes Night) to commemorate the anti-monarchy Gunpowder Plot of November 5, 1605. While most places have some kind of fireworks display, things reach a fever pitch in Sussex. Here, “bonfire boyes” from different towns hold local processions, then gather in the country town of Lewes. Visit after dark to see spectacular torchlit processions, burning barrels tipped into the river, giant effigies, and lots of fireworks. It’s one of the best (and weirdest) things to do in England.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is the most famous thing about England?

The very thought of England summons visions of London’s landmarks and royal pageantry, from UNESCO World Heritage sites like Big Ben and Westminster Abbey to the British Museum and Natural History Museum. Other things forever associated with the country are ancient Stonehenge; World War II history; and rolling green hills, medieval villages, and wood-beamed pubs.

What can you do in England for a week?

You could spend a million years just attempting to explore London’s must-sees, such as Big Ben, the Tower of London, and Buckingham Palace (now home to King Charles). The best things to do in England include seeing Bath, famous for its exquisite Roman baths. Then, admire the mysterious stones of Stonehenge, and see the glowing lakes and fells of the Lake District.

What kind of activities can you do in England?

Aside from experiencing top attractions like Tower Bridge, Bath, and Stonehenge, there’s plenty else. Visit museums, explore the elegant university towns of Oxford and Cambridge; roam stately homes and castles; absorb the rural beauty of regions like the Cotswolds; and experience culinary rituals like afternoon tea and fish ‘n’ chips.

What is the most popular outdoor activity in the UK?

Enjoying England’s great outdoors is a national hobby and visitor-must. Popular activities include hiking and cycling in National Parks like the Lake District; taking Thames sightseeing cruises; surfing and picnicking on Cornwall’s craggy and sandy beaches; and walking the Seven Sisters hills overlooking the English Channel.

How can I have fun in the UK?

The English have more fun than many tourists imagine. For your share, down pints at cozy pubs; hit a nightclub in any big city; or join those who go hiking, cycling, or wild swimming. Or watch a Premier League football match, see the Beatles Story in Liverpool, or enjoy a summer game of cricket on a village green.

What should I avoid in England?

In London, try to avoid traveling during weekday rush hours when the city’s roads and transport systems are typically clogged. It’s also wise to visit popular museums, cities, and attractions outside public holidays, when big crowds usually descend. Also, never push into a line of people: English people consider it extremely rude.
