Regardless if one loves natural wonders, history, culture, and art – England has all of them and more. It’s easy to explore many things when coming here without having to worry about traveling long distances since England is so crammed with dozens of wonderful places and cities to visit. Since it’s home to one of the most popular football teams in the world (Manchester United), those who want to know more about it should definitely visit Manchester at the Old Trafford stadium.
1. Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland
In the rugged Northumberland landscape, it seems that very little has changed since the time when the Roman soldiers set up a garrison along the Hadrian’s Wall. When visiting this wonderful historic place, people will be able to see the sites along the wall where the defensive nature of this World Heritage Site is vividly illustrated by the Roman Archaeological remains.
Even more, those who have the time to travel from the Central Station in Newcastle to Chester’s Fort will be able to see the age-old foundations of a steam room, a temple, and other old buildings. When getting here, everyone will feel like they have been transported back in time. One thing to keep in mind is that using comfy shoes is going to make walking a bit easier in these places.
2. Dino Jaws London’s Natural History Museum
People who love dinosaurs are in for a great surprise since they can visit a museum where there are several interesting dinosaurs exhibited. Not only that, but here they’ll also be able to come face to face with lifelike giant reptiles that are millions of years old. This rather small museum features ten new animatronic dinosaurs including a pack of vicious Velociraptors that devour a baby Protoceratops and a nine-meter-long Baryonyx (a rare species of dinosaurs that has ninety-six teeth) which uses his teeth and thirty centimeters long claws in order to scoop fish out of water. Tourists with children will also find this museum to be a great place to visit since it contains a lot of fun scientific insights for children.
3. The Da Vinci Code and Lincoln Cathedral
The Lincoln Cathedral is by far the finest gothic cathedral in Europe and because of that, it’s always packed with curious tourists that want to admire its beauty and delve a bit more into the many stories it has gathered over the millennia. However, even if the cathedral was popular in the past, it has now become even more popular and a much hotter tourist attraction
because it was featured in the Da Vinci Code movie. One of the main things that make this cathedral stand apart though is the legendary Lincoln Imp gargoyle and the fourteenth-century stone carvings.
4. The Flying Scotsman and the Yorkshire Wheel
Because there are 2 extra new events held at York’s National Railway Museum, it seems like now would be the best time for everyone to come to visit it if they had it on their to-do list for some time, but never got the chance to check it out. When arriving here, tourists can take a ride in the Norwich Union Yorkshire Wheel and experience a thrilling view fifty-four meters above the ground. There are forty-two air-conditioned enclosed pods on the wheel that offer anyone daring to climb in one a view they’ll never forget. Next, people can choose to take a step back in time and learn more about how people traveled in the eighteen-sixties from London to Edinburgh.
5. Manchester United
Any football lover should visit the Old Trafford football stadium which can be found in Greater Manchester, which is the home of Manchester United FC. The stadium has a total capacity of 75.731 people and it’s the second biggest stadium in the UK. Here some of the most important football matches are played every year and for those who want to come at a time when their favorite team is playing, it’s recommended they get the match tickets a few weeks before arriving in the UK so they don’t have to wait in the mile-long lines people form here.
It seems that England is a great place where people can see some of the most iconic places and buildings that define the UK. Regardless if it’s Wembley or Old Trafford Stadium or maybe Lincoln Cathedral, every tourist who comes here will have a great time that he or she will never forget.
