England

Land of castles, kings and queens, of rolling hills and rising peaks; this is England, a country that packs an astonishing amount into a relatively small space.

England has got it all: history, heritage, bustling cities, quiet countryside and an abundance of charm. Discover medieval market towns, swaths of sweeping woodland, jaw-dropping coastlines and a history so extensive that it would take you a lifetime of vacations to uncover it all.

Visit the dynamic capital of London for world-class culture, art, theater and dining. Marvel at the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral, uncover the history of the Tower of London, enjoy a dazzling view of the cityscape from the top of the Shard and take your photo outside of the Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament).

England’s other major cities include Manchester, home to Manchester United’s Old Trafford Stadium and the extraordinary John Dalton Library. Then there is Birmingham, known for its Victorian shopping streets and for housing the delectable Cadbury Chocolate World. Stroll through England’s historic university cities of Oxford and Cambridge, where you can admire the architecture of the centuries-old university buildings and churches.

Wade into the waves at seaside towns such as Blackpool. Here, fearless visitors can take in the beachscape from the glass-bottomed viewing platform at the top of Blackpool Tower and get their heart pumping on the white-knuckle rides of Pleasure Beach theme park.

For a back-to-nature escape, amble across the Yorkshire Dales or take a romantic steam train ride through the North York Moors National Park, spotting famous movie locations along the way. Discover everything there is to know about Shakespeare’s birthplace and the home of the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Discover some of England’s most breathtaking coastal scenery on the Southwest Coast Path, which weaves along the Devon and Cornwall coastlines. For more sensational scenery, take a steamboat ride across one of the mighty lakes of the Lake District National Park.

The six busiest airports in England are Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Luton, Stansted and Birmingham. Catch a train or long-distance bus between towns and cities, then explore the centers on foot or via public transportation networks.

England’s repertoire of fantastic dining, cultural events, stunning scenery and welcoming hospitality will dazzle you long after you have left.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in England?

A: Like most dynamic cities, London and Birmingham can be explored using ride-share services or public transportation. But if you're hoping to soak up the wider region of Greater London or farther afield, you may appreciate the freedom and flexibility that comes with having your own ride. For all your motoring requirements, check out our guide to Cheap Car Hire in England.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to England?

A: The following airports service the majority of international air traffic to and from England:

  • London (LHR-Heathrow): 19,034 international flights per month.
  • London (LGW-Gatwick): 12,082 international flights per month.
  • London (STN-Stansted): 7,154 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to England?

A: England is overflowing with wonderful accommodation. Apartments are a favourite with travellers. Cottages, hotels and bed & breakfasts also offer great alternatives.

Q: What does an England holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Convenient flights, comfy hotels and a great rental car to cruise around in — and that's just for starters. We also have a variety of activities and experiences. Peruse what's on offer and start organising your perfect getaway in England.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to England?

A: You'll score better prices if you bundle your Hotel, Flights and Rental Car. It's straightforward (and easy on your bank balance) to tailor your own holiday package with the help of Expedia. It's time to turn those travel daydreams into reality and experience more of our amazing world for less.

Q: What are the best things to do in England?

A: You have opportunities galore when in London. You just can't skip seeing Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Tower of London, at the very least.

On the other hand, if you're visiting Birmingham, many tourists find their way to Bullring Shopping Centre, International Convention Centre (ICC) and National Exhibition Centre (NEC).

Lastly, Liverpool ONE, Albert Dock and Anfield Road Stadium are top things to do if you'd like to create some special memories while staying in Liverpool.

        The property was in excellent condition - very clean, modern and everything in excellent working order. The only downside for us was it was not in the centre of town. In retrospect we could have done with being more in the centre. Also there was no bar or breakfast facility. Not a big problem though. ...
