England FAQ

How many days do you need to explore England?

How many days you spend in England depends on how much you want to see. A 4 or 5 day trip is great for seeing London and a day trip or two to sights like Stonehenge, Bath, Oxford, and Windsor Castle.

But if you want to see a lot more of the country, you’ll want to plan for a more extended visit of about 2 weeks or more. That way, you’ll be able to explore more English towns even more fully, like York, Lincoln, and Cambridge.

What is a good month to go to England?

The best time to visit England is during the spring or the autumn. These are the country’s shoulder season, and you’ll have fewer crowds and better flight and hotel prices.

During the spring (March to early June), you can see the country in bloom. During the fall (September to November), you can see the leaves changing color. Both seasons are warm and dry, perfect for sightseeing!

What is the best way to travel across England?

The best way to travel around England is by train. Not only is it the fastest way across the UK, it’s also the most scenic and the most cost efficient.

You’ll enjoy watching from the comfort of your train car as the rolling green countryside flies by. You can buy train tickets online in advance to save money.

Many of the country’s best small towns are a just a day trip away from London by train. You could even map out a whole itinerary and take the train from one city to the next.

What do I need to know before going to England?

Here are a few things to keep in mind before you visit England:

– Stand on the right when riding an escalator (which they call elevators) or a moving sidewalk, and walk on the left.
– Pack a jacket, even if you’re visiting in summer, because it can often get chilly and/or rainy throughout the day.
– Queues (lines) are sacred. Don’t jump the queue.
– Tips are for exceptional service. You aren’t expected to tip as they’re considered a bonus. If you’d like to tip at a full-service restaurant, 10% is sufficient.

What is the cheapest time to visit England?

The cheapest time to visit England is in the winter (November to March). This is the off-season in the country.

The downside of visiting during the winter is that many attractions can close during the winter. Sights like those big, beautiful manor houses with splendid gardens usually are fully closed or have limited hours during the winter. Keep this in mind when planning a winter trip to the UK.

It’s also worth noting that Christmas is not a cheap time to visit the UK. So avoid the last couple weeks of December to avoid the holiday surge prices.
