Welcome to my England Travel Guide – on this page you will find links to all my travel related posts about England. This includes where to visit, what to see, tours and tickets to buy, books to read and lots of resources and inspiration for your trip.

England is the largest country in the UK and for many people (if they are flying into London) is the first country they arrive in. Although I love London there is so much more to England than just its capital city so prepare to add many places to your bucket list!

England is divided into 9 geographical regions. These are (from north to south) the North East, North West, Yorkshire and the Humber, West Midlands, East Midlands, East of England, South West, South East and London.

These regions are further divided into 48 counties. The largest county in England is Yorkshire and the smallest is Rutland.

The largest cities in England (after London) are Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, Liverpool, Leeds and Bristol.

With a population of approximately 56 million England has more than 84% of the total UK population living within its borders.
