1.Isles of Scilly

Situated 40 kilometers off the tip of Cornwall, this Atlantic archipelago of islands and islets has the look of a tropical paradise, but with a bucolic, English sensibility.

The main island of St. Mary’s is home to winding lanes and stunning beaches, while tiny Bryher offers arguably the best sunset views in the entire country and has just one hotel – Hell Bay.

Tresco Abbey Gardens easily beat any country estate on the mainland for variety and color, while a boat trip to the uninhabited islands of Samson or St. Helen’s offers the chance to see seals and seabirds up close.

2.Norwich, Norfolk

With 31 surviving medieval churches, a spectacular cathedral whose spire is a prime nesting site for peregrine falcons and cobbled streets lined with spectacular buildings dating back to the 12th century, Norwich is an easily overlooked historical gem.

Roadside signs proclaim this “A Fine City” and for good reason.

The pubs are among the best in England, with the delightful Adam and Eve dating back to 1249.

And with an annual arts festival taking place every May, its modern cultural offering makes it far more than a museum piece.

3.Walberswick and the Suffolk coast

Walberswick’s village green, ruined church, and seaside location make it one of the finest places in this corner of eastern England.

Beloved by artists and writers including Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Esther Freud, thanks to its moody light and relative isolation, the village is surrounded by over 1,000 acres of protected heathland and marshes, ripe for long walks and is home to Grade I listed St. Andrew’s Church.

Head along the coast to swanky Southwold, or watch the gray rollers come to shore as the sun rises.

4.Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland

Top 5 of the best places to visit in the UK

The one-time northern frontier of the Roman Empire, Hadrian’s Wall is arguably the greatest historical monument in a country blessed with castles, cathedrals and spectacular ruins.

Stretching from one side of England to the other, its central section is the most arresting, the wall rising and falling across steep hills.

Day trippers should head to the preserved forts at Housesteads and Vindolanda.

Those with more time can follow the 135-kilometer national trail, taking in the wall from Newcastle to the Solway Firth.

5.Winchester, Hampshire

Home to a 13th century replica of the legendary round table of King Arthur, Winchester is a place where history is inescapable.

As well as the aforementioned table, its Great Hall is home to artifacts from Winchester Castle (which no longer exists), while nearby Winchester Cathedral is the longest of its kind in Europe.

Wander through cobbled streets and past the famous Winchester College and along the rippling River Itchen for a rustic English experience like no other.

The city is also filled with well-preserved Georgian buildings such as the one that houses the original Hotel du Vin, which dates back to 1715
