England Map with Wales, Tourist Places
Why visit England or Wales?
Tudor Houses in Canterbury, Kent, East England.
The United Kingdom – which comprises England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland – has 5, 000 years of world-changing history and a wide range of things for a tourist to see and do, from culture to nature, old to new, silly to serious, whatever suits you – except serious sunbathing, comfortable swimming or skiing!
London has a world class arts and culture scene with superb museums, galleries and theatres in settings of great age and historical reference, while the rest of this small land spills over with historic buildings, traditional villages and lovely gardens and parks.
The countryside is easily accessible by car and ranges from dramatic moors to bleak mountains to big soft beaches; a walker’s delight and not bad for drivers too, if they stick to the smaller roads.
