Even though I don’t live in England anymore, with a trip across the pond coming up next month, I find myself reminiscing on the beauty that abounds in the country. And, as most English people will tell you – “There’s more to England than London”. So, here are twelve photos that encapsulate what the country outside of London is all about.
Overlooking the Cotswolds, an area of outstanding natural beauty, from Broadway Tower in Broadway, Worcestershire.
The shops and cafes in Broadway “the jewel of the Cotswolds”, a village in Worcestershire.
A crisp winter morning in the countryside of Colesbourne, England.
A timbered former merchants house in the town square of Evesham, Worcestershire.
Hillside Brewery’s views overlooking the Forest of Dean.
Tree-lined walkways in Cirencester Park in Cirencester, Gloucestershire.
Pulteney Bridge – only one of a few bridges in the world with shops on both sides – and its weir in Bath, Somerset.
Devil’s Chimney from atop Leckhampton Hill, Gloucestershire. The Cotswold Way used to reach Devil’s Chimney is a delightful hiking trail.
Castlerigg stone circle in Keswick, Cumbria. You can walk right up to the stones!
Arlington Row, Cotswold stone cottages, in Bibury, Gloucestershire.
Punting boats in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire. A ride along the college backs in autumn was a treat.
Infamous Stonehenge in Amesbury, Salisbury. Strange to think of civilizations past that put these standing stones in place.
Have you been to England? Where did you like best?
