While London has enough attractions of its own to keep any tourist busy, so many wonderful places lie all around it that you’re certain to be tempted to take at least one day trip while you’re here.
High on the list of England’s top tourist attractions, Stonehenge has mystified scholars, scientists, and historians for centuries. The giant stones that rise from the Salisbury Plain have been here for at least four millennia.
Before circling the megaliths, spend some time in the visitor center to learn about the stones and the people who built them, through beautifully conceived audio-visual exhibits and more than 250 ancient artifacts.
The UNESCO World Heritage site also includes authentic replicas of Neolithic houses illustrating everyday Neolithic life.
Oxford and the Cotswolds
One of Europe’s oldest and most beautiful university towns, Oxford is easy to reach from London.
While its main draw for tourists is the university, the town itself is an attractive one, with parks and gardens, the historic Covered Market, and Christ Church Cathedral. Highlights of the university are the Bodleian Library and Christ Church College, which gained new attention when it was featured in several Harry Potter movies.
Close to Oxford are the Cotswolds, a beautiful region of rolling landscapes and picturesque villages. The Cotswolds have been named an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty due to the rare limestone grassland habitats and old growth woodlands, but for most visitors, the region’s appeal is in its charming villages and towns, such as Burton-on-Water, Castle Combe, and Chipping Norton. An easy way to visit this beautiful region is on the Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle.
The name of this beautiful city gives a clue to its origins and its most famous site: the remarkable 2,000-year-old Roman Baths built around the city’s natural hot springs.
But Bath continued to be a spa town long after the Romans left, and became a center for fashionable, wealthy English in the Georgian and Regency periods. Several attractions recall that era immortalized by Bath’s most famous resident, Jane Austen. Recapture her world at the Jane Austen Centre and learn about Regency fashions at the Fashion Museum, located in the stunning and historic Assembly Rooms.
Be sure to see the Pulteney Bridge over the River Avon, lined with shops and said to be patterned after the Ponte Vecchio, one of the top attractions in Florence, Italy.
Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick Castle
The Elizabethan market town of Stratford-upon-Avon is known primarily as the birthplace of William Shakespeare. But even without this famous poet and its importance as a stage and research center for his works, Stratford-upon-Avon is worth visiting for its charming half-timbered homes and the historic Stratford-upon-Avon Canal.
Most tourists come here, however, to follow in the footsteps of Shakespeare, visiting his well-preserved birthplace and several other homes of those associated with him. About a mile from the town center is the lovely thatched cottage of Shakespeare’s wife, Anne Hathaway, with its cottage garden.
Close to Stratford-upon-Avon is the medieval Warwick Castle, with its impressive ramparts. You can tour the huge castle complex, from the top of its towers to the dungeons, and watch jousting matches or demonstrations of falconry and other medieval skills. The castle and Shakespeare’s birthplace are easy to combine with two other highlights of this part of England on the Oxford, Cotswolds, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Warwick Castle Day Trip from London.
