England - Enjoy the British charm
England - Enjoy the British charm
For a small country, England has a lot to offer. With breathtakingly beautiful scenery, glorious beaches, and a whole lot of character, England should be at the top of everyone's bucket list. For example, you can visit the coast and cities in southern England or go to the center or north of the country. If you have a little more time, a combination of those three is of course even better.
And let´s not forget about London. The city has been the most popular destination among business travelers for years. The countless international companies, conference facilities, and the many travel options to London make the British capital the place to be for a successful business trip.
Naturally, in such a large, popular business city, many convention centers can be found, from small and intimate to large and crowded. The London ExCel International Exhibition Center is one of the best-known centers. Located in Royal Dock's district, about twenty minutes from the center, everything is possible here from meetings to special events. Fancy a snack or drink in between? For that, there are no fewer than 22 restaurants in the center!
Fly first class with British Airways
British Airways is the flag carrier of the United Kingdom and therefore real 'English pride'. British Airways has a large number of non-stop connections from London Heathrow to the USA and Canada. The great thing is that British Airways has its terminal at London Heathrow, making transfers efficient.
As you can imagine, travelers who fly in first-class or business will be served impeccably and enjoy exceptional comfort while flying.
Most beautiful places in England
Liverpool is traditionally known for its shipping and trade. Today, this bustling city is known for the Beatles and football. But there is more, much more. The Albert Dock has been on the rise since the 1980s. What was once a dilapidated harbor area is now Liverpool's hot spot. There are plenty of museums, modern bars, and hip restaurants on the Mersey River. Apart from the museums on the Albert Dock, The Walker Gallery (with works from Rembrandt to Matisse) and the World Museum (Animals and Civilization) are worth a visit. The city center is so small that you can easily reach everything on foot. It is also difficult to get lost because the city is full of clear signage.
Due to its convenient location, Cornwell lifts on the warm airflow from the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, it rarely freezes and subtropical plants have the chance to take root here. Looking for the perfect surf location? Then you should visit Newquay. The sea here is rich in high, tube-shaped waves. The ideal conditions for surfers to “catch” a wave. When you've finished surfing, you can go to one of the cozy pubs for a cold pint. If you are a fan of live music, then this is the place for you. Every day there is a band or artist somewhere on a stage.
In the north of England, you will find the medieval town of York. The city was founded by the Romans in 71 AD. However, in the area where York is located (Yorkshire), archaeological finds have been found that are more than 7 to 8 thousand years old. It is, therefore, no surprise that this city is full of historic and cultural wealth. For example, the city is surrounded by city walls that have been almost perfectly preserved until now. The town itself is a maze of cobbled lanes, traditional pubs, and churches. In the heart of the city, you will find York Minster, one of the world's most beautiful cathedrals, which is well worth a visit.
You know them, those typical English villages that you always see on television shows. Those villages exist! In the heart of England lies the Cotswolds area, which is made up of rolling countryside, picturesque villages, and honey-colored cottages. You can experience the ultimate English feeling in one of the many tea houses in this area. If you visit this area, you should walk through Castle Combe, Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water, and Chipping Campden. You can also explore the villages by bike.
In the north of England, you will find the Lake District, England's most popular national park. Every year about 15,000 people visit this region for its panoramic views, lakes, and steep hills. Lake District lends itself well to various activities such as cycling, hiking, kayaking, or sailing. When it comes to food, you are certainly in the right place in this area because fine dining is no longer limited to chic hotels. In many restaurants, you will find dishes prepared with local delicacies.
This list is almost impossible to imagine without, the capital of England. Along with Paris, Tokyo, and New York, London is considered one of the world cities. It will come as no surprise that this city has so much to offer. The city has four places that are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. One of these is the Tower of London. Its name suggests otherwise, but this is a large fortress that used to serve as a fortress, royal palace, and even state prison. Today the building serves as a museum where you can learn a lot about British history. The other places are Greenwich, Kew Gardens, and Palace of Westminster, and Westminster Abbey. In addition to these historic places, you are also at the right place here if you like shopping.
Dorset, Wiltshire & Hampshire
Dorset, Wiltshire, and Hampshire are three counties in southern England characterized by iconic coastal cliffs and unspoiled natural parks. Highlights in Dorset include the 191m Golden Cap cliff, the Durdle Door, the village of Shaftesbury, and the hillfort Maiden Castle. The destination of many thousands of tourists in Wiltshire is Stonehenge, a prehistoric monument consisting of a circular construction of large vertical and horizontal stones. Other places of interest in Wiltshire include the Avebury Stone Circle, West Kennet Long Barrow, and the prehistoric mound of Silbury Hill.
In the northeast of England, bordering the east coast, are the three counties of Northumberland, Durham, and Yorkshire. Northumberland is the most northerly and borders Scotland. One of England's most famous landmarks is located there: Hadrian's Wall. The beautiful coastal area with its quiet villages and impressive castles has not been declared an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for nothing.
Kent, Sussex, and Surrey
Kent, Sussex, and Surrey are three counties in South East England that belong to the so-called 'home counties'. Home counties are counties that lie around London. Although Sussex does not border the capital, the county is also included in this group. Both Kent and Sussex border the Channel.
Because of its many orchards and gardens, Kent is also known as the 'Garden of England'. The region is known for its vineyards, beautiful coastline, and historic ports.
