England is part of the United Kingdom, along with Scotland and Wales, and is located on an island off the mainland coasts of western Europe. England is closely connected by narrow stretches of water from both Ireland and France, separated by the Irish Sea from Island and by the English Channel from France. It is a country with a rich cultural heritage and historical influences that have reached around the globe. As a travel destination it is also a country that offers its visitors a wide range of attractions that include many important historic sites, as well as a vast array of modern entertainments that include a popular nightlife, modern art galleries, theater and opera, high fashion shopping, and fine dining.
London is the capital of England and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London have been attracting visitors for centuries, as have the Kew Gardens, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square and the London Bridge, all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. London is also home to some of the world’s most famous museums and exhibits, such as the British Museum which houses the Rosetta Stone, the Tate Modern museum of contemporary art and sculpture, the National Gallery and the National History Museum. The London Eye is a modern attraction beside the Thames that offers a fantastic panoramic view of the city from the top of a massive ferris wheel.
England also welcomes visitors to its beaches and seaside resorts in Devon and Cornwall, as well as Blackpool, Fistral Beach, and along the Jurassic Coast. Popular amusement parks in England include Legoland in Windsor, and Pleasure Beach in Blackpool.
Prehistoric sites in England include Stonehenge and other stone circles, King Arthur’s Hall and the great tomb at Porth Hellick Down. The town of Thatcham in Berkshire is the oldest inhabited settlement in England, with a school building that was built in 1304 and the Abbey of Reading founded by King Henry I in 1121. There are many ancient, historical landmarks throughout England that make interesting places to visit.
You can not be a Liverpool Tour Guide without loving the Beatles and realising how much of a tourism magnet their legacy is. I was born in the South of Liverpool "the posh part" John Lennon was brought up there too, close to Penny Lane and I love explaining the story of the time the Beatles spend in Liverpool as boys and how and why they became famous.
I am passionate social entrepreneur and marketer with a solid background in online marketing and business development. At an early age I had the fortune to go on a month-long trip in Brazil, where I immersed myself in various tropical landscapes, Rio's inner local lifestyle, and got to know the poorest people living in the favelas, which triggered a passion for learning and discovering what the world has to offer.
