England is a mix of many cultures and traditions. Throughout the course of history, England has been invaded by and subsequently traded with, tribes and armies from all over Europe and Scandinavia. In 55 and 54 BC, Julius Caesar led invasions, although a complete Roman takeover did not occur until the intervention of Claudius 100 years later. From the 5th Century Jutes, Frisians, Saxons from northern Germany, and Angles from southern Denmark - often called "Anglo-Saxons", began to invade Britain. In the 8th Century, Vikings made many raids into Britain, taking control of towns and cities and vast swathes of land. In September 1066 King Harold Godwinson repelled an invasion by the mercenary king Harald Hardrada of Norway, before marching his army back south to meet William the Conqueror at Hastings, where the last successful invasion of England was achieved on 14th October 1066.
This series of historical invasions left their mark on England in terms of the different types of settlements, buildings and roads that each invader subsequently constructed, but also in terms of the many regional accents and stories left behind. As such, England and all of Britain is rich with history, historical castles and landscapes and the legends they inspired.
Where to visit in England:
London is of course the obvious place to visit in England - although there are many others, some of which are highlighted below. England's rich and varied history is on display for all to see (to borrow a phrase from Sir Christopher Wren, "Look around you..."). Big Ben and the houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, St Paul's Cathedral and many more famous places are all within easy reach of the city centre, and are joined today by stunning new attractions like the London Eye, which provides great views of the river Thames and many of the landmarks listed above. Other great days out include Madame Tussauds and Sea Life London Aquarium, while for the evenings (and afternoons) the many theatres on and around Shaftesbury Avenue and others like the London Palladium (Argyll St just off Oxford St) offer brilliant entertainment. Packed with shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, cafés and clubs, London has something for everyone.
Cornwall is located in the far west of Great Britain almost completely surrounded by a magnificent coastline of nearly 300 miles, with the Isles of Scilly lying off the to the west. Cornwall's rich history includes tales of pirates and smugglers and the area even lays claim to the legend of King Arthur; Cornwall's dramatic landscapes make it easy to imagine these stories coming to life here. Cornwall has some of the best beaches in the UK, as well as great days out for all the family at the Eden Project, steam railways, museums, ancestral houses, castles and the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.
The city of Oxford is home not only to Inspectors Morse and Lewis, but also to one of the world's great Universities. The beautiful buildings of the 39 colleges that make up Oxford University provide a stunning backdrop to a city that is perfect to stroll around at your leisure. On rainy days, visit the dinosaur-packed Natural History Museum (Parks Rd) and the Ashmolean Museum (Beaumont St), or soak up some culture at the Oxford Playhouse (Beaumont St) or New Theatre (George St). If the sun is shining, explore the Botanical Gardens (Rose Lane, off High St) or try your hand at punting (Magdalen Bridge Boathouse, High St).
Manchester is a major city in the northwest of England which was at the heart of the Industrial Revolution. In more recent years, the city has been regarded by many as the unofficial Second City of the UK, it is a vibrant centre of technology and student life and features a stunning amount and range of shops, restaurants, pubs and clubs, as well as not one but two of the world's best football teams.
Liverpool, on the River Mersey, has long been a major shipping port and centre of trade in England, and today is a cultural centre (world famous as the home of the Beatles) and a sporting city, home to two famous football clubs, Liverpool and Everton. It also hosts the famous horse race, the Grand National, at Aintree. The area around Liverpool, often referred to as Merseyside, has more than 40 golf courses, seven of which have championships status. Liverpool is a great city for nightlife with hundreds of restaurants, pubs, bars and cafe's and an incredible range of shops in the city centre.
The Peak District
Before 1932, the open moors of England such as those of the Peak District in northern Derbyshire, were closed to all, used only by the landed gentry for the likes of grouse-shooting, just 12 days a year. The Kinder Trespass in 1932 was the real start of the campaign for national parks and open access to moorland in Britain. As Ewan McColl later put it, "No man has the right to own mountains; Any more than the deep ocean bed". Today, the Peak District is home to some of the best walking country in England. The stunning landscapes around Kinder Scout, Black Hill and Shining Tor are a hill-walkers dream and thousands of tourists every year come to enjoy the outdoors adventure on offer. Nearby attractions include grand stately homes such as Haddon Hall and the stunning Chatsworth House.
