England was named the world’s second best tourist destination for 2020 by Lonely Planet (out-ranked only by Bhutan, in the Himilayas). The reasons for the honour were “the timeless treasures that England is famous for: the historic castles and cathedrals, the quaint villages and rolling countryside, and of course, the seaside.” Top sites include the capital city of London and Liverpool, home of the Beatles; the ancient site of Stonehenge; charming Bath and the Cotswolds; the university cities of Oxford and Cambridge; Shakespeare Country, Stratford-Upon-Avon; the Lake District; York and the Yorkshire Dales and hundreds of quaint, historic pubs scattered throughout the countryside.
Wales is mostly known for it’s distinctive Welsh language (one of the world’s longest place names is in Wales, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch – don’t even try to say it unless you’re Welsh, you’ll just embarrass yourself!) and its Celtic culture; rugged coastline; natural beauty and impressive hiking trails in her mountainous national parks, notably Snowdonia and castles like Caernarfon, Cardiff and Conwy (and those are just the Cs). It’s known as the “Castle Capital of the World” for a reason – it has over 600 of them in an area the size of Massachusetts, half the size of Nova Scotia. Can you imagine? There must be a castle on every corner!
