Until recently England was generally thought of as a gentle, fabled land freeze-framed sometime in the 1930s, home of the post office, country pub and vicarage. It's now better known for vibrant cities with great nightlife and attractions, contrasted with green and pleasant countryside.
From Stonehenge and Tower Bridge to Eton and Oxford, England is loaded with cherished icons of a past era. But it also does modernity with a confidence and panache left over from its days in the never-setting sun. Fashion, fine dining, clubbing, shopping - England's rates with the world's best.
ENGLAND TOURS AND TRAVEL:
Newcastle Upon Tyne Tours,
LONDON Tours, Travel and Activities
London - the grand resonance of its very name suggests history and might. Its opportunities for entertainment by day and night go on and on and on. It's a city that exhilarates and intimidates, a Monopoly board studded with stellar sights.
It's a cosmopolitan mix of Third and First Worlds, the stubbornly traditional and the proudly avant-garde. But somehow - between 'er Majesty and Boy George, Bow Bells and Big Ben, the Millennium Dome and the 2012 Olympics - it all hangs together.

SUGGESTED ITINERARIES: ENGLAND
Anyone who spends any extended period of time in England will sympathise with the locals' obsession with the weather, although in relative terms the climate is mild and the rainfall is not spectacular.
April to September are undoubtedly the best months, and this is, unsurprisingly, when most sights are open, and when most people visit. However, July and August are the busiest months. Sometimes the crowds on the coast, at the national parks, in London and popular towns like Oxford, Bath and York have to be seen to be believed.
