The English country is one of royalty, dukes and duchesses, prehistoric sites, and let’s not forget tea parties. The ease of moving around in addition to the beautiful destinations in the country makes it an excellent choice for travel. Up north of England, there are some of these attractive destinations that would make travelers relish their visit to the country and perhaps stay a few additional days.
The peaceful atmosphere of England is well reflected in the Lake District, which is one of the top places to visit. The lake district is a culmination of about sixteen different lakes within a mountainous topography with rolling hills that make up the district in the countryside.
You can visit this place and select which of the lakes you want to camp by since some are more peaceful than others. In some of the lake locations, you can enjoy a hike along the mountains and hills, or you could go paddleboarding in the lake as well, especially the Ullswater lake which is the second largest lake in England and a part of this district.
The lake water is of great quality and the expanse of the water allows you to explore the different islands and beaches that it extends to.
The real adventure for travelers begins on the journey to the holy island of Lindisfarne, which is also north of England. The island lies off the coast of Northumberland and getting to the island is no easy task in itself. Sometimes the sea washes across the road and the island seems to be disconnected from being reached.
It is advisable to look up the safe periods and travel only at that time. Lindisfarne is a beautiful island, when you’re there you shouldn’t miss checking out the ancient monasteries that were built there. There’s a lot of history to uncover on this island as it has been referred to as the place that marked the beginning of the Vikings in Northern Europe.
Scarborough will be the location of choice if you’re looking for a cool weekend journey to relax and unwind. The town is located on the coast of the northern sea and is a site for historical findings. Peasholm park houses the ancient harbor and is one of the major attractions of the town.
Visitors and tourists can watch the naval warfare take place where ships battle against each other. But don't be worried, the fireworks and effects are all safe, and at the end of the show, the ship operators still come around and wave to tourists.
You would also have to ensure you take a tour of the Scarborough castle and see the place where Anne Bronte was put to rest before you leave. If you’re hungry, there are great places to have lunch like the Green Room Brasserie for fresh food and the Fishbar on the lifeboat for fries and seafood. Scarborough is truly one of the best places to visit in England, and a trip to the country without seeing this place is not complete.
