Day Trips in England
England was populated in prehistoric times and many burial tombs, stone circles and hill forts remain. The Roman conquest of Britain started in 43AD during the reign of Emperor Claudius. They built roads, towns and villas in the countryside and the remains of many have been preserved. The medieval history is everywhere, in the castles and historic houses. The industrial revolution also left sites that are interesting to explore today.
Designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) preserve the countryside and historic villages, National Parks preserve wilderness areas and organizations like the National Trust and English Heritage preserve the historic buildings.
There is more to see in England than just London. We hope these day trips will inspire you to get out into the English countryside.
Popular areas to visit: The Cotswolds in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire, Devon and Cornwall in the southwest, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.
