England has a deep routed history that oozes from every corner of the country. The villages, towns & cities, monuments, castles, palaces and cathedrals have all built up over the centuries and have seen bloody battles, political milestones, religious strife and historic royal occasions. The land, mainly low hills and plains, has experienced human life since the Stone Age and breathes a million secrets. The country and it’s people have an eccentric charm which only adds to the wonderful experience of visiting England. There are some wonderful museums and art galleries to visit from small ones on historic sites, to the larger ones in the main cities. There is a very strong sense of history and culture throughout the country.
England is full of variety and offers something for everyone regardless of age. Grandparents, children and everyone in between can enjoy a whole host of fun activities both in the cities and the countryside. Days can be spent sight seeing, going on cultural trips, shopping, eating out in world class restaurants, trips to the theater in the heart of ‘theater land’ in London followed by traveling to the countryside and taking trips to the seaside, visiting castles, cathedrals and museums or just exploring deep into the beautiful countryside on foot. England has some fabulous country houses to rent and LTR has the best of those on offer at its finger tips. These are ideal places to base yourselves for a very special family reunion or other celebration.
A trip to England really is like a journey through history but not one that is boring and fusty but an exciting one seeing medieval fortresses, maybe a visit to Stonehenge (one of the wonders of the world and the best known prehistoric monument in Europe), a visit to Hadrian’s Wall (a World Heritage site that stretches 73 miles from sea to sea across some of the most beautiful land in England) and trips to see one of the many historic castles or palaces dotted around the country. Of course it is important not to ignore the modern culture and to enjoy the latest architecture in London and Manchester and perhaps a visit to the Eden Project in Cornwall.
If you enjoy visiting gardens, there are some fabulous ones to visit in England, which are part of large estates either still family run or that have been taken over by the National Trust. For those who love the great outdoors, a trip to the Lake District, England’s largest National Park, offers a host of things to do. Home to Scafell Pike, it’s highest mountain and Wastwater, it’s deepest lake. A wonderful place to go and enjoy a luxury adventure vacation. For golf lovers, there are some fabulous golf courses to play on such as the Royal Birkdale Golf Club and Sunningdale Golf Club among many others.
There are glorious stately homes nestled deep in among thousands of acres of stunning, beautifully maintained private land. These have been lovingly restored to include all the luxuries of the 21st Century and offer a perfect base from which to explore the beauty of the English countryside. If you are looking to enjoy luxury travel in England, these are the perfect place to stay.
