England is a familiar country, which we feel we know well. However, as soon as you get there, you can already see his spécificités qu' a tourist guide to England will not fail to highlight: the grass is very green, the sheep numerous, you drive on the left... Because England cultivates its differences jealously, proud of its traditions and its insularity. England still has a certain sweetness of life, this charm " cosy ", a little old-fashioned, to which we often associate it. Bucolic, elegant and modest, the English countryside, particularly in Yorkshire and Kent, has inspired many painters and writers. In addition to the moorland landscapes, wild coasts and national parks suitable for hiking, there are many historical testimonies. England is full of castles (Leeds Castle, Warwick Castle...), cathedrals (Salisbury, Canterbury...) and museums (Tate Modern, Madame Tussauds...). But Britain is far from falling asleep on its past. It is home to several vibrant cities, London, Liverpool, the city of the Beatles or Manchester, home of Oasis, with an intense cultural life, restaurants of all kinds, a lively nightlife... The must-see attractions such as the British museum, the Buckingham Palace, the Westminster Palace or the London Tower await you!
