Who is the most beautiful British woman

Recommended by travel bloggers: The 22 most beautiful places in England

England may be small, but there is still a lot to discover there and let's be honest: Sometimes we just don't have the time (or the money) to travel halfway around the world! Often times, a vacation in an almost neighboring country with a great landscape, breathtaking beaches and delicious food can be just as inspiring.

We rounded up a few of the top travel bloggers who told us about their favorite destinations in England - from bustling cities to remote villages. A lot of the bloggers live in the UK - so they know what they're talking about! Read on to find out more about the 22 best places to visit in England.

1. Bristol

What a lovely city ☀️⛵️ 📷@carolyn.eaton

Bristol's Fabulous Balloon Fiesta 📷 @ igersbristol

Recommended by Elle Croft of A Bird in the Hand Travel

My criteria for a great travel destination are a lively food scene, lots of activities, and preferably hipster vibes. Fortunately, I don't have to get on a plane to find something that meets all of these criteria. Bristol is a city where you leave a piece of your heart every time you visit. No matter when you come, there is always something to do - from the historic SS Great Britain to the fascinating aquarium and the indescribable street art you'll find everywhere (including some original Banksy works).

Come here in the summer and you'll stumble upon a festival like Harbor Fest, which offers endless free entertainment, or the breathtaking International Balloon Fiesta, which sees hundreds of hot air balloons soaring into the sky. Get your lunch at St Nick’s - a marketplace full of food stalls - and end your day with pizza and cider at The Stable. If you feel like something else, eat tapas and have a glass of wine in the Olive Shed, from which you can overlook the harbor.

2. The Lake District

The Lake District is my favorite national park in the UK and one of the gems in the north of England. If you're into hiking, photography, outdoor adventures, cozy pubs with home cooked food, or a visit to the home of a famous poet, the Lake District is for you. Getting there couldn't be easier, with Ambleside and Windermere in the South Lakes just a 30-minute drive away on the M6. Getting here by train is easy too, trains run regularly from London and take a little over 2 1/2 hours, which costs around € 25. Speaking of trains, you can take the train to the center of the national park, deep into the Eskdale Valley, from Ravensglass. This is a narrow gauge steam train ride, a journey you will not find anywhere else in the UK. When you're done canoeing, hiking, or biking through the beautiful countryside, the Lake District is full of cozy, inviting pubs that serve real beer. Try the Royal Oak in Ambleside or the Dog and Gun in Keswick, for a proper Cumbrian experience.

3. Bath

This city is so idyllic and has so much history 📷@sunshinetogold

Delightful shops are rife in Bath including Cascara - AWESOME tea and cake! 📷 @ poppy_loves_london

Recommended by Emily at Emily Luxton Travels

One of my favorite cities in the UK is Bath - one of the prettiest cities in the south of England: the honey colored Bath stone is sure to help and there is still so much to do there. For me, the highlight is the Thermae Bath Spa, which is the only local spa that uses natural thermal spring water that made this city famous. And of course you can't miss the Roman Baths, where you can find out everything about the history of my favorite spa town.

I also love all of the connections with Jane Austen in Bath. In addition to the very entertaining Jane Austen Center, fans should also take a trip to the Bath Assembly Rooms. These fantastic Georgian ballrooms were the setting for scenes from two of her novels (Persuasion and Northanger Abbey). There's also the lovely Georgian architecture - I love The Circus and of course there's the famous Royal Crescent. Just take a stroll around the city center and enjoy them all. If you're looking for something a little more quirky, check out the Bizarre Bath Comedy Running Tours - one of a kind, goofy, and definitely memorable.

4. South Dorset

Not the traditional British coast .... 📷 @ samiosmith

The view from Corfe Castle is unbeatable 📷@surreyhillscountryside

Recommended by Emily at Emily Luxton Travels

If you're looking for fabulous scenery, the finest seafood, and tons of outdoor adventures, you should definitely head down to southern Dorset. I grew up in Weymouth which is a cute little seaside town with a lot of old fashioned charm so maybe I'm a little biased. Still, I seriously believe that this is one of the most beautiful parts of England!

One of the highlights is the famous Jurassic Coast, which starts in East Devon and runs to the great Old Harry Rocks near Swanage in Dorset. The cliffs here were formed 252 and 201 million years ago, during the Triassic Period - in addition to fossils and geology, there are also really beautiful landscapes and great cliff hiking trails to discover. Don't miss the Durdle Door, a stone archway over the sea on one of Dorset's finest beaches. You can see it well on a kayak tour!

I love Corfe Castle, a ruined castle on a mountain that was the inspiration for Enid Blyton's Kirrin Castle. For a bit of variety, you have the village of Tyneham. It's one of my favorite spots in the area and not many know it exists - a ghost village abandoned during WWI where you can explore the ruined houses and beautifully restored 1940s classrooms. Dorset can be reached from Bournemouth in 40 minutes by car.

5. Brighton

Brighton Pier is beautiful in all weathers 📷 @ svenjasparkling

Recommended by K&H from KH Travels

Brighton is fantastic for everyone, whether you're looking for a romantic spot as a couple, for coastal fun as a family, or for a bit of partying as a group. We love to wander the streets and often you don't even have to plan anything to have a good time - the markets, graffiti art and street entertainers are some of the things that make this city so adorable. Keep an eye out for events when planning your visit - Brighton Pride is one of the biggest of the year.

We love to eat classic fish and chips on the beach, or stroll through The Lanes where you will stumble across a number of small restaurants. A few of our favorite places to eat are the famous Choccywoccydoodah that no chocolate lover should miss! Dos Sombreros is another favorite, an independent Mexican with a wide variety of delicious food and cocktails.

The Lanes are a collection of tiny, fairytale cobbled streets, famous for their ornate shops and restaurants. Be prepared for it to get crowded here on weekends but they are lovely and you can get to know some of Brighton's culture that is full of quirkiness. Brighton Pier has a mix of arcades, rides and other novel fun while maintaining its historic feel. We like to enjoy a cider here and sit back with a view of Brighton's picturesque, colorful seashore, which is full of beach huts and beautiful regency architecture.

6. The Cotswolds

I can't get enough of the amazing streets in Castle Combe 📷 @ diman_zi_est

Recommended by Victoria Brewood at Pommie Travels

If you're looking for a place that is English through and through, The Cotsworlds is just that. Stone cottages, flowing streams, winding roads and pretty villages make The Cotsworlds the perfect postcard destination for a great British escape.

It's only a 2 hour drive from London, so it's not far for a weekend break and you can stop over in Bath if you want to get the most out of your trip. Driving around The Cotsworlds and admiring the scenery is an experience in itself, although you should calculate in the bigger cities with lots of tourist attractions during peak summer time. For food I recommend a pub nearby called The Old Fleece which has a very good menu and a brilliant Sunday roast. There are so many beautiful towns in places to visit in The Cotsworlds that you could spend days driving around, but my favorites are Castle Combe, Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water, and Stow-on-the-Wold.

My favorite place to visit is the Cotsworld Wildlife Park, which offers an extremely close and personal experience with the wildlife. You can walk through an enclosure full of lemurs jumping from tree to tree. You can take photos of the rhinos grazing freely in front of the Manor House. Another great location is Sezincote Estate, which is a 4,500 acre property with a 200 year old Mughal Indian palace. For me, The Cotsworlds is without a doubt the most laid-back place to vacation and it's no wonder that this place has inspired so many writers and poets over the years. It's easy to get to, just an hour's train ride from Bristol.

7. London

The coolest street art can be found in Shoreditch 📷 @ yousef_4s

A unicorn snack in the Cereal Killer Café 📷 @ sophialeestein

Recommended by Samantha Wragg at Coco Travels

It may be touristy, but sometimes I love being a tourist in my own city! I think one of the best ways to see London is with a hop-on-hop-off river cruise. These usually cost around € 11 and (as the name suggests) you can get on and off as you like. Starting at Westminster Pier, the drive goes down to Greenwich, where adrenaline junkies can climb the O2 Arena. And you can take the Emirates gondola for a breathtaking view of the city. The last time I took the gondola it was pretty windy, which makes it, um, a thrilling ride!

When you've done the well-known tourist trail, head west to Shoreditch - home of the hipsters and the setting for a fantastic Instagram photo or two. This is my favorite part of London because there is nowhere you can go without some great street art (you can even take a street art running tour if you're into!) And there are great places to have brunch - heaps of battered avocados!

One of the places I go to regularly is the Cream which has fantastic juices. If you like cereals, then you have to pay a visit to the Cereal Killer Café, where you can get classic cereals at any time of the day. For a lively lunch you should test the bounce, in which you can play a round of ping pong between your drinks.

8. Liverpool

Free music festivals like this one in Sefton Park are not uncommon in Liverpool 📷@visitliverpool

Recommended by Olivia McDonald fromLiv On A Shoestring

Let me guess, when you think of Liverpool do your mind wander straight to the Liverpool quartet, The Beatles? This UNESCO maritime town has SO much more to offer and is the perfect addition to any UK trip. If architecture is your thing, this northern port city has the most Grade I listed buildings in the UK and the UK's largest cathedral! A 3 hour running tour starts every day at 11 a.m. in front of the Prince Albert statue and tries to explain the origin of the distinctive 'Liverpool' accent - it's very interesting and a great way to spend a morning.

I love Liverpool because you can have the best night there (think hangover), especially if you are into dance music. Go to Heeie Jeebie's for a few sausages. The Hatters Hostel is brilliant, as is the Tavernco, which serves the best breakfast for your hangover. They have a great pile of fluffy pancakes for just under € 4.

9. Newcastle upon Tyne

The magnificent Tyne Bridge 📷@lolaroberto

Great exhibition at the BALTIC Center for Contemporary Art 📷@deborah.mace

Recommended by Gemma from Girls That Travel

Newcastle is possibly the friendliest city in the UK and the busiest! Start your day with breakfast on the quay in the chic Quay Ingredient and order the famous Eggs Benedict, but on weekends you have to be early to avoid the crowd. Then take a stroll along the waterfront and over the Millennium Bridge to The Baltic Center for Contemporary Art, which is of course free. In a converted corn wear, The Baltic features artists like Anthony Gormley and Damien Hirst and has a great view from the terrace on floor 4. You have to visit the Victoria Tunnel, a 19th century railway line that was used to deliver coal and later as a shelter in World War II. Take something warm to wear because it's wet and cold and make sure you book tours in advance (around 8 €)! If you want to go out, pay a visit to Madame Koo, a hidden gem with cozy stalls and an Asian atmosphere.

But remember, if you want to mingle with the locals, leave your coat at home. Even though February is -2 ° C, Geordies are known to NEVER dress warm when going out. For a super friendly stay there is the Albatross in the middle of the city. The staff will make you feel at home with free tea, coffee, and toast.

10. Cornwall

Recommended by Simon from Simon's Jam Jar

It still amazes me how many more people have to visit Cornwall. When it comes to coastal vacations and excursions, very few places in the UK can match the breathtaking scenery and beaches of Cornwall.

The South West Coastal Path is a must for hiking enthusiasts and many of the coves on the north coast have some of the best surfing spots in the UK. Every city, no matter how big or small, will have their own hidden pubs, walking trails and beaches. There is a lot of history in Cornwall too. Go and discover Tingagel and the coastal ruins of the birthplace of King Arthur. Visit Michael's Mount, a tidal island on the south coast, and especially Perranporth - a place I've been to every year since I was 8 years old - for its 2 miles of spectacular beaches and the Watering Hole - the only beach pub in the UK !

11. Cambridge

Cambridge is magical 📷@eve.piri

Recommended by Kash from The Budget Traveler

For me, Cambridge is the perfect escape from reality - it often feels like you've stumbled into a Tudor fantasy. One of the key must-see attractions in Cambridge is its world-famous university - the 30 weird colleges hold the city together. You can enter some of the sacred ivory towers for free, but the more famous colleges will cost you around € 6 to enter. I recommend Newnham, which has a gem of a garden surrounded by brick walls, or Christ’s College, which is also free. For me, attending evening prayer is one of the most memorable parts of a visit to Cambridge, and best of all, it's absolutely free!

King’s College has the most famous evening mass, but Trinity, Selwyn, St. Johns and many other colleges also have great choirs. Take a stroll along 'The Backs' from autumn to early spring for one of the best views in Cambridge: King’s College Chapel across the meadow. The Backs itself is beautiful - sticking my head out punting on the River Cam is definitely one of my most romantic travel experiences in England and Europe - Venice, you get competition!

Go punting in the morning when it's not so busy - I recommend going with local operators who offer a 45-minute guided tour of The Backs. Book online, it costs less than directly at the kiosk (around € 18). YHA Cambridge offers great value munching times in the student bars and restaurants. I also recommend Cambridge’s iconic Bakery & Café Fitzbillies to admire their beautiful art, new windows and of course to try everything on the menu. Have crab head with pickled cucumber, sausage rolls or the characteristic 'Chelsea Buns' soaked in dark syrup for only € 3.

12. Whitstable, Kent

A typical Whitstable activity: catching oysters 📷@anneliesvalk

Recommended by Lucy Sheref from Wanderluce

I am infinitely fascinated by how much there is to discover right outside my door. Although I love a good city break and there are plenty of opportunities for it in the UK, my heart beats for the sea! Whenever I long for a balcony vacation, I drive down to Whitstable on the Kent coast, a short 30-minute drive from Canterbury. Whitstable is a super cute little seaside town, with tons of classic charm. A short hour-long drive from London (St Pancras has a bullet train), you can spend a week, weekend or just a day here. My top tips when you're in the fishing towns are to go to the harbor, eat some Whitstable native oysters (they got them at my wedding!) And lobster on the beach at The Lobster Shack before walking along the beach to The Old Neptune Pub to quench your thirst. Be sure to take a few photos of the pretty beach huts as well.

Harbor Street is full of lovely lifestyle shops so you can get something to remember the trip or just grab some more - the Crab & Winkle is a must for seafood take away. And if you're staying a night or two, book a table at the Michelin-starred Sportsman in nearby Seasalter for a delicious dinner.

13. The New Forest

The New Forest only has a calming effect when you look at it 📷@foxybeardpics

Recommended by Jodie from The Little Backpacker

I was fortunate enough to grow up in this part of the UK and it is really fantastic. Just a 2 hour drive from London, it is the perfect destination for anyone visiting the UK. From the moment you enter the New Forest National Park, you are surrounded by forests, meadows and tons of hiking and biking trails. Take a closer look and you will find that there are wild animals in the wild - think horses, cows, and even pigs. The New Forest is made up of many small villages and towns all worth visiting: Burley, Lyndhurst, Lymington and Beaulieu. Once you're here, there is so much to see and do, I would recommend renting a bike and hitting the trails to get the most out of your trip - even better, make it kind of a pub crawl. Speaking of pubs, they're my top food and drink recommendation: every town and village has at least one. If you are here in the summer I would also recommend bringing a tent for weekend camping in one of these locations. The New Forest water park is also one of the best things to do in the summer. Alternatively, if you're coming in the colder months, bring plenty of clothes, take a walk, and then go to a pub to warm up by the open fire

Recommended by Katie from What Katie Is Doing

I also chase the feeling of being somewhere a little more exotic than the good old UK. Whenever I feel like this, but my budget doesn't allow for a long trip, I go to Lydford Gorge in Devon. If you stand at the foot of the White Lady waterfall, it could actually be that you are in Bali or Mexico. Take a walk up the path, cut into the side of the gorge, climb into the famous 'Devil’s Cauldron', where the angry tide is lost in the black shimmering rocks and you will be convinced that you have left England far behind you. If you emerged from the gorge, dazed, go to Brentor, just as dramatic, but a completely different world. Climb the rocky 'gate' to the chapel which is at the very top and which actually still holds Sunday masses and enjoy the panoramic views over the moor to the southern coast.

Explore Devon's winding roads and head south to the governorate and coastal resort of Sidmouth, which comes to life when it's Folk Week in the summer. Or head north to Ilfracombe, where the waves crash against a coast that, on a sunny summer day, is a tough competition in the Mediterranean and the surfers flock. This is a prime location for camping, perfect for a road trip and nights in coastal campsites or free camping in hidden spots in the bog. Be prepared for rain, because it is far from dry down here, but it will convince you either way.

15. Margate, Kent

Recommended by Jaillan from Savoir There

My favorite place in the UK must be the Isle of Thanet on the east coast of Kent, home to Margate. There's a thriving and weirdly creative scene, and the epic skies inspired painter Turner while the modern day gave Margate and Tracey Emin. The Isle of Thanet was the original home of British coastal vacations, today buckets and spades and rock poles meet boutique hotels and chic art galleries while retaining a laid-back, grounded charm. I love strolling the flea markets, which are jam-packed with retro trinkets and descending secret wartime tunnels (including hard hats).

Ramsgate is close by with the only royal harbor while Broadstairs is the British beach town through and through. You can eat seafood fresh from the boat, explore one of the 15 sandy beaches and bays, climb chalk cliffs or ride your bike the paths of the Viking Route - and you have to eat what they call the best pizza in town at GB Pizza, then you can Take a digestive walk in the sand while watching the sunset.

Recommended by Jennifer Gale

Alnwick in Northumberland is one of those places where it feels like you're really getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Fantastic landscape and quiet, strange villages, combined with fresh seafood and long stretches of beach, which make it the perfect place for vacation. There are some lovely walking trails, depending on whether you want to go for a walk or a real hike, such as around the beautiful Dunstanburgh Castle a few miles from Alnwick, or just park on a stretch of beach and hike for a few hours. For about 8 € you should definitely go on a boat that will take you to the Farne Islands, where you will spend a stormy hour watching hundreds of puffins, seals and other sea birds on the rocks.

You have to go to Alnwick Castle too, it was the location of several scenes from the Harry Potter films - you will definitely recognize a lot! As a bookworm, I love Barter Books, Alnwick's huge bookstore - it really is one of the largest second hand bookstores in Europe. After an afternoon of reading (and maybe walking), head to the Craster Seafood Restaurant for delicious fresh fish with a view over the ocean. Alnwick is a 45-minute drive or train ride from Newcastle, so it's easy to get here from a Newcastle hostel. I especially like the Albatross, which is very central and close to the train station, so you can quickly get on a train to Alnwick.

Manchester's Altrincham Market is a foodie paradise with stalls selling it all☕️ 📷 @ asideofsweet

Recommended by Jaz Lewis

Manchester is a city of MANY personalities - you can literally find anything you want and that's why it's SO good for a weekend getaway - and the people are incredibly friendly. The Northern Quartier is home to the coolest street art and you can definitely just stroll through here for a few hours. Manchester is also extremely gay and lesbian friendly - if you walk down Canal Street you will find a huge collection of gay bars and clubs. For a more elegant vibe, hop on a tram (they're super easy and convenient) to Spinningfields, where you'll find chic restaurants, bars, and great shopping. Manchester is home to two universities, which means that if you want to go out at night at low prices, the options are plentiful. The city really has some of the best nightlife in the UK (I'm definitely not biased haha) including The Warehouse Project which is 4 months of weekend raves in an old bomb shelter - trust me, it's a night to remember.

For a delicious brunch with a variety of vegetarian options, head to the central Federal Cafe, or Allotment, which will help cure the inevitable hangover. For a cheaper option, head to the Altrincham Market - I love the avocado toast (simple but tasty!). Science freaks should head to the Jodrell Bank Observatory, home to the world's third largest telescope. For football fans and a real Manchester experience (they LOVE their football and you will hear about the City vs. United fans fight everywhere), go to Old Trafford for a tour of Man U Stadium for around € 22.

Recommended by Minka Guides

The creative city of Sheffield is undervalued in my opinion - there is so much to see and do here. The shopping is great, but for a break from the busy streets head to the stunning Winter Garden, a HUGE glass house - and it's right next to the Millennium Gallery, which usually has great exhibitions all year round. I also love the stunning ruins of Peveril Castle - well worth the half hour drive out of Sheffield city center. For challenging hikes, the Peak District is on your doorstep (20 minutes by bus), with kilometers of beautiful rolling hills.

After all the walking, it's time to have a drink - because Sheffield is a student city, there are SO many options. I like The Great Gatsby, where you can go from eating street food during the day to partying until 3 a.m. with delicious cocktails on offer. Go to Tamper Coffee the next day for a delicious brunch - the Eggs Benedict are INCREDIBLE. One of the best things to do in Sheffield is just walk the streets and you will find yourself in a cozy pub - the city is FULL of it! The Riverside is great on a sunny day and The Old Queens Head is super cozy and authentic. Totally casual, but if you're into meeting some alpacas, llamas and reindeer, head to Mayfield Alpaca Farm on the outskirts of Sheffield - a really fun way to spend an afternoon.

Recommended by Annabel Usher

York is one of the prettiest cities in the north of England and I just love it - it's full of cozy cafes and there is so much to see. This may be touristy, but York Minster is a must-see, it's an imposing Gothic cathedral and definitely a sight in York. Admission is around € 11 but includes a guided tour and it's fascinating to learn about the history - one of the windows is the largest stained glass area in the world! You must also visit The Shambles, possibly my favorite area in York, full of adorable quaint streets, cute little cafes and restaurants and also the inspiration for Diagon Alley from Harry Potter! Go to The Teddy Bear Tea Rooms, a lovely, one-of-a-kind café with fabulous scones.

Jorvik Viking Center sounds random, but it's super interesting and one of the best things I've done in York - the Viking history exhibitions are actually so interesting, with well preserved artifacts and the whole thing feels like one old viking town. Finally, you must pay a visit to The Cafe 68 Gillygate. They have a delicious traditional brunch there - they make an excellent vegetarian breakfast.

20. Southwold, Suffolk

Colorful beach huts make this town so adorable 📷 @ juliejulietjulieta

You definitely can't do that in London 📷@itsssmithy

Recommended by Laura Carniel

This town is bursting with British coastal charm, and not just the colorful beach huts that line the beach - I LOVE the feeling of being on an old-fashioned coastal vacation. You definitely need to check out the pier for good old-fashioned eccentric chat, quirky beach shops and beach cafes. Go to The Clockhouse for amazing coffee and cake with a view of the ocean - being on the beach is pure relaxation.

Southwold's little market is Monday through Thursday and is definitely worth a visit, they sell everything from food to flowers and I can easily spend a few hours there in the weird little shops in the lovely town. If you'd rather do something different, head to the world famous Adnams Brewery near the lighthouse - it's really interesting to learn more about the distillery and there is even the option to make your own gin. If you want to explore the area, hop on a ferry to Walberswick, a beautiful, secluded little village. Southwold is easy to get to from Cambridge, so it's perfect for a day trip.

Oxford is known as Cambridge's main competitor, but this city has so much more to offer. I think you should definitely check out the campus, especially the gorgeous Bodleian Library - I can't believe students really study here.

You should also check out the Botanical Gardens of the University of Oxford, this is where you can spend your morning before going sightseeing. If you want to experience something more exciting (but still very relaxed), go punting. Oxford has great options for this - go to the Magdalen Bridge Boathouse to rent a punt for € 22 (5 people). For a slightly different eight, head to the Oxford Playhouse, where you can see traditional performances in an open air theater - but be prepared for the rain! For great coffee, head to Queen’s Lane Coffee House, the oldest coffee house in Europe, in the beautiful area of ​​Queen’s Lane. Alternatively there is the Kitty Café - yes, that's a café where you are surrounded by cats ... it's hilarious and SO cute (only if you like cats, of course).

Nottingham literally has EVERYTHING - it's so underrated as a city break! To see some gorgeous architecture, visit the beautiful Wollaton Hall, surrounded by parks perfect for a stroll, and also comprising of a history and industrial museum if you fancy getting nerdy. Another thing which can't be missed when visiting Nottingham is the City of Caves - it's a maze which goes back to the dark ages and they offer tours where you can learn about the history of the caves - it's £ 8 entry and so fascinating.

If that's enough sightseeing for you, the nightlife in Nottingham is also INSANE.It provides thousands of students with cheap nights out every night, with the likes of Stealth, Rock City and Rescue Rooms, so you know you're in good hands if you want an all night party. Don’t miss the quirky Alley Cafe which is solely veggie and vegan, and often puts on live music - try the veggie breakfast and a smoothie for the hangover cure of dreams.
