England Holiday

During the height of its empire, this island nation built iconic buildings, acquired superb art collections and developed two of the world’s greatest universities.

England is notorious for its wealth, yet visiting the country as a tourist is surprisingly affordable. Its largest museums are free and its grand architecture and beautiful universities can be appreciated from the outside. Stay within a budget while seeing London’s sights.

London is filled with grand buildings constructed from the wealth of England’s once vast empire. The Elizabeth Tower, otherwise known as the Big Ben clock tower, crowns the massive 19th-century Parliamentary building of Westminster Palace on the River Thames. Head downriver to find the iconic Tower Bridge, a drawbridge supported by two tall Victorian towers. Drop by Buckingham Palace, the Queen’s stately London residence.

Finish your London trip with a visit to any of its major museums. The extensive British Museum, the Tate Modern, the luxurious Victoria and Albert Museum and the National Gallery all feature free admission to their permanent exhibits.

Leave London to explore England’s two nearby university towns of Oxford and Cambridge. Cross the ancient courtyards and well-cropped lawns of Oxford University. Tour Bodleian Library, which at over 400 years old is one of England’s oldest libraries. The library’s monumental Radcliffe Camera rotunda is an Oxford icon. Afterward, drive up to Cambridge and visit its many universities. Cruise down the River Cam and float under the Bridge of Sighs, a covered bridge patterned after one in Venice.

Travel southwest to find Stonehenge in the British countryside. Despite its fame, the circle of rock formations from the 31st century B.C. is still a mystery to behold. The best time to visit is during the winter or summer solstice when the stones line up with the rising sun, although huge crowds can take away from the magic of this experience.

Arrive in England via one of its international airports - London alone has six. Get around the cities on the extensive public transit network and travel around the country by train or rental car. Most travelers like to take at least one of England’s iconic cabs during their stay as well.

Q: Should I book a car while on holiday in England?

A: Like most dynamic cities, London and Birmingham can be explored using ride-share services or public transportation. But if you're hoping to soak up the wider region of Greater London or farther afield, you may appreciate the freedom and flexibility that comes with having your own ride. For all your motoring requirements, check out our guide to Cheap Car Hire in England.

Q: Which airports can I fly in to for a holiday to England?

A: The following airports service the majority of international air traffic to and from England:

  • London (LHR-Heathrow): 19,034 international flights per month.
  • London (LGW-Gatwick): 12,082 international flights per month.
  • London (STN-Stansted): 7,154 international flights per month.

Q: What are the most popular types of hotels for a holiday to England?

A: England is overflowing with wonderful accommodation. Apartments are a favourite with travellers. Cottages, hotels and bed & breakfasts also offer great alternatives.

Q: What does an England holiday booking with Expedia include?

A: Convenient flights, comfy hotels and a great rental car to cruise around in — and that's just for starters. We also have a variety of activities and experiences. Peruse what's on offer and start organising your perfect getaway in England.

Q: What is the best way to save money on my holiday to England?

A: You'll score better prices if you bundle your Hotel, Flights and Rental Car. It's straightforward (and easy on your bank balance) to tailor your own holiday package with the help of Expedia. It's time to turn those travel daydreams into reality and experience more of our amazing world for less.

Q: What are the best things to do in England?

A: You have opportunities galore when in London. You just can't skip seeing Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Tower of London, at the very least.

On the other hand, if you're visiting Birmingham, many tourists find their way to Bullring Shopping Centre, International Convention Centre (ICC) and National Exhibition Centre (NEC).

Lastly, Liverpool ONE, Albert Dock and Anfield Road Stadium are top things to do if you'd like to create some special memories while staying in Liverpool.
