When most people think about England as a tourist destination their thoughts immediately focus on London and all the iconic landmarks. These places are definitely worth checking out whilst you are there, however this little piece is designed to give you a few other cool ideas of places worth exploring.
I (Dan) am from England as you may know, but Maggie is from Argentina so our travels revolve around two different perspectives. Though for this trip to England most of our visits were to London and surrounding counties, the first adventure we took was to Dorset and along the Jurassic Coastline.
When in Dorset, we had to visit the amazing Durdle Door. Around this area there are also some unreal castles you can see and Lulworth Cove, which is a stunning little beach cove, set in a quaint fishing village. It feels like your stepping back in time with all the cottages and tiny little country lanes. For more info on this area check out our blog on “Durdle Door, England's hidden gem on the Jurassic Coast”.
Whilst in England we were based in Surrey, a home county to London which is known for the Surrey Hills – an area of outstanding natural beauty packed with amazing walks, countryside and still just a stones throw away form the hustle and bustle that London has to offer. If you are in the area, be sure to check out box hill and the wineries close to the area, with all the chalky hillsides, they have some seriously tasty wine and great country beers.If you wanna be amazed by lavender fields, right on the boarder of Surrey and London you will find the Mayfield Lavender fields. Glowing purple, it is greater London’s answer to Provence and is a great day trip. See more of this in our blog “Mayfield Lavender Farm, a lil' piece of France in England”.
