Three must-visit English counties

Millions of tourists head to England every year. Why? To sample the culture, explore diverse cities like London and experience what this fantastic country has to offer.

There’s more to England, though, than simply London’s world-famous attractions – much more!

Here’s a quick guide to three parts of England well worth visiting, which has been compiled by


England’s biggest county offers everything from quaint seaside towns like historic Whitby to regenerated cities like Leeds and Sheffield, the serene Yorkshire Dales to the bustling cobbled streets of York and fine contemporary art museum The Hepworth Wakefield to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which is a real gem of a place to go if the weather is decent.

Yorkshire Dales


A popular holiday destination for both English residents and people from further afield, Cornwall has the all-important four s’s – sun, sea, sand and surf! Add in some pretty special attractions like the Eden Project, Land’s End and Tintagel Castle and it’s easy to why it is so well loved by people of all ages, especially families. Neighbouring Devon is also a picturesque area.

Tintagel Castle


Head 100 or so miles north east from Cornwall and you’ll find Somerset, home to charming towns like Weston-super-Mare and interesting cultural cities such as Bristol and Bath. Somerset is also the gateway to Wales and nearby Cardiff is a short drive away in case you like the idea of spending time over the border. Bristol, in particular, has plenty going on – from seeing the sites made famous by Brunel and Banksy to enjoying a spot of retail therapy.

    All 3 of these places look breath taking, I went to England years ago, but I would love to go back with my husband!

    England is pretty amazing. We did our European trip before we decided to have kids and it was one of the best decisions we made. Can’t wait to take the kids there when they are a bit older and can appreciate all the amazing landmarks.
