Cheap flights to England – whether for business or pleasure – are always in high demand by residents of other countries. Yet, in our race for a guaranteed-sun holiday, this green and pleasant land often goes unthought of as a holiday destination.
England has a wealth of attractions – a world city in London, multicultural cities such as Manchester and Birmingham, pleasant seaside towns such as Brighton, world-class university towns such as Cambridge and Oxford and world-renowned quintessentially English towns such as Stratford Upon Avon and Windermere.
Over the past couple of decades, the industrial North has undergone great regeneration. The trade and industry of several cities made England great in the 18th and 19th centuries. While the heavy industry has gone, there are many sites of historical interest associated with them. These cities have reinvented themselves for the 21st century with the arts, culture, entertainment, shopping and socialising, great places for a city break.
England’s thriving sports scene, our long and enduring love of Monarchy, our cultural heritage and our natural attributes ensures that this world on our doorstep has something for everyone.
England has a temperate maritime climate – temperatures are mild and weather is changeable. In winter, temperatures rarely fall below zero, while summer temperatures rarely climb past 32 degrees. Rainfall is plentiful, mostly during autumn and winter although the Great British Summer has a reputation for being a washout (play stopped at Wimbledon and all that). The driest months are May, June, September and October.
Summer is traditionally the high season however it varies by destination and the school holidays have a great bearing on prices too. Prices will rise for accommodation and travel in July and August, October (half-term), Christmas and New Year, February (Valentine’s Day and half-term), Easter, and May (half-term). London doesn’t have an off-season, bar a couple of weeks post Christmas and New Year’s Day. Elsewhere, in popular destinations such as the Lake District, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath or York, the summer months are high season.
The winter is, in general, the low season. Some tourist attractions (stately homes for example) are mothballed for the winter months. The early months of the year, January to early March, are traditionally the least popular with tourists, so you may find better rates for flights and accommodation during this time.
Flying is a cinch, given the low-cost airlines and dozens of airports around the country. Competition between the budget airlines ensures that fares are low, sometimes cheaper than taking the train.
Trains are frequent and prompt, and booking far in advance nets the cheapest fares.
Buses and coaches are also great ways to get around England. Booked far enough in advance you can travel to many destinations from London from £3 with companies such as National Express.
