Visiting London for the first time is exciting. Having a few extra days planned to explore the places surrounding London, is even more exciting for me. After visiting this busy city, I have come to appreciate a few easily accessible places that will make your trip to England memorable. Come along with me as we explore my favorite day trips from London.
Cambridge is my favorite day trip from London. However, Cambridge in itself is a beautiful location to explore for more time. From some of the oldest buildings in Europe to beautiful museums and parks, Cambridge offers so many things to see and do. If you have a few more days in the Cambridge area, you can also explore some beautiful places within easy driving distance. Come along with me as we explore my favorite day trips from Cambridge, England.
Cambridge is a beautiful city to visit, especially since it is so easy to come here from London. The historical Cambridge University with its many colleges and traditions form a unique vibe in this college city. Come along with me on a beautiful Cambridge walking tour.
Old quaint churches abound in the English countryside. Most English small towns and villages have an old church in the middle, since the church has always been the center of town both in location and in the life of the town. All the village churches have the village graveyard surrounding the church. Churches are connected with the beginning, middle and end of life all over the world and in particular in almost every corner of England. I like exploring old churches and look at inscriptions and tombstones as they give me a tiny impression of old moments gone by. Come along with me as I will show you my favorite small and quaint country churches I visited in England.
Beautiful and complex gardening in England is a country tradition that dates back hundreds of years. All the famous British mansions have beautifully groomed gardens and most of them have really beautiful rose gardens. It is always a delightful experience visiting an old British mansion and walking through their beautiful gardens. Read on to find out my favorite British Gardens.
When visiting a major tourist attraction, most people only see the “big” things. It's understandable because not everyone has the luxury of spending a lot of time in a great place. However, most tourist attractions have a lot more to offer than what one can visit in a few hours. Cambridge, England is no exception to the rule. While the town is full of tourist buses that come for a day trip from London, Cambrige yields it's beauty to those who want to slow down and explore the city. Take a look at this beauty in my travel gallery from my first encounter with Cambrige, England.
