Must-sees in England

  • Brighton
  • Just 90 minutes from London, Brighton is a great little getaway from the hustle and bustle of the capital. It's a great little day trip and the chalk cliffs are a great photo-op.
  • Cotswolds
  • The Cotswolds are an area of rolling hills and quaint villages tucked away in the middle of England that are great for exploring and are full of places quintessentially British.
  • Oxford
  • If you're feeling particularly erudite, Oxford is another great day trip from London where you can explore one of the oldest institutions of higher learning (and the setting for many scenes in the Harry Potter movies).
