England has a lot more to offer than just a double-decker bus tour through the city of London. This country boasts incredible ancient wonders of the world and an amazing history that is on display everywhere you look. Inspired by this travel and leisure article, I would like to provide a list of the experiences that every person needs to have in England.
1) Celebrate The Solstice At Stonehenge
Experience Stonehenge the way it was meant to be experienced: a campfire celebration filled with vibrant dance and music. This celebration takes place every year, on the longest day of the year. When the sun begins to rise at 4:50 a.m. on June 21, the festivities start. This is part of a four-day festival that draws thousands to this location, one of the world’s top wonders. The Stonehenge Campsite offers 4 acres of tent pitching, plus live music, food vendors, and even WiFi.
2) Get Educational In Oxford
Oxford University is home to 38 different colleges, each with its own unique history and campus. While it would be difficult to see them all, it is certainly worth checking out a few of the best. You should definitely check out the New College, which was founded in 1379 and is absolutely stunning. You should also take the time to check out Exeter College, where J.R.R. Tolkien conceived his fantasy masterpieces.
3) Cheer On Manchester United
Manchester United is one of the greatest teams in all of soccer. Even if you are not a fan of the sport, attending a live match featuring some of the world’s greatest players will turn anyone into a fan. Old Trafford, also known as the “theatre of dreams,” is the largest club stadium in England. If you have the time, sign up for an 80-minute stadium tour and grab some tickets to cheer on the local favorites.
4) Experience The Supernatural In Dartmoor
Located in England’s southern tip, you will find Mystical Dartmoor. This place has inspired numerous folklore involving ghosts, devils, holy wells, and pixies. To experience Dartmoor’s magic, all you need to do is get lost in its nature. Lydford Gorge, which features a 98-foot waterfall surrounded by elm and chestnut trees, is the most spectacular attraction. An exploration in Dartmoor will feel like you have stepped back in time.
5) Shop Portobello Road
Portobello road is one of the most famous outdoor markets. A walk down Portobello Road is both relaxing and fascinating. This half-mile stretch in London’s Notting Hill district is bustling with different stalls selling everything from vintage clothing and jewelry to fresh produce and flowers to thousands of antiques. On your walk, you will also find a number of fun pubs, interesting shops, and a rich Victorian history.
