Take A Cultural History Tour Of England

May 29, 2008
The English Empire was once the greatest hotbed of cultural influence in the world. While it may not have the same influence it once had, it is still a cultural force to be reckoned with. London is a cosmopolitan city that breathes sophisticated and fashionable culture and art. It's rich and colorful history can be seen in artifacts and remnants of the past which stand as testimony to the once mighty English Empire.

On the other hand, England is hardly known for its cuisine. Well it is time now for that fact to change. Today England has fourteen of the top fifty restaurants in the world. Not a bad feat for a country that is not exactly praised for its food. You will find the traditional fare of England with Beef Wellington and Yorkshire pudding, but you will also notice a decidedly different flavor permeating England. England has become a very diverse country and with that diversity out comes the flavors of other cultures. Indian restaurants have particularly taken their place in the South of England.

You will want to travel away from London to experience the full feel of England. Cornwall offers spectacular views of sea cliffs and a trail that will show you some of the most amazing views of the ocean. Cotehele is a Tudor mansion that finds its home in Cornwall. It is an architectural masterpiece. Make sure you travel around the southern area to find old English towns in the gorgeous countryside. You will see everything English in this old community, old stone cottages with thatched roofs, alleys of cobblestone and everything you imagine the English countryside to be. These areas are most popular in the summer months. When the weather becomes warmer the locals travel the area to enjoy the beautiful scenery.

The town of Bath in the north is famous for its ancient Roman bathhouses. You can still visit these extraordinary places today. Don't miss out on the rich history England has to offer. Visit the home of Shakespeare in Stratford-upon-Avon. You can visit the family gravesite at the Holy Trinity Church. You will find in this area of England a wonderful mix of the ancient world and the modern. The world's largest Gothic cathedral is located in York. Walk the streets that have been around since ancient times and feel the atmosphere of old England.

England is a country that is worth exploring over and over again. There is so much to see that you will find it hard to complete your exploration in one vacation. Many people find that it is necessary to visit more than once to fully enjoy all that England has to offer. If you are interested in the contributions England has made to the modern world you should not miss a trip to England. Talk it over with a travel agent today and they will surely be able to steer you towards a vacation that you will remember for a lifetime, and one that you will no doubt want to repeat again and again.
