Map of Northern England
Cities and Towns of Northern England

One of the most industrialized cities in the world, Manchester is Northern England`s largest city, boasting a cultural life to rival that of London. The city boasts some of the most interesting galleries and museums in the UK, such as the Museum of Science and Industry, the Whitworth for modern art, the City Art Gallery, the Lowry and the Imperial War Museum North. The Castlefield conservation area`s 18th-century canal system recalls the city`s days as a textile powerhouse, and visitors can trace this history at the interactive Museum of Science & Industry.

Liverpool, with its famous waterfront on the River Mersey, was and still is one of the world`s great ports, and was second only to London as the greatest city in an enormous empire that stretched across the world. It`s also, famously, the hometown of The Beatles. Today it is a city famous for its football, music scene and nightlife. Enjoy the Victorian, Georgian and Neoclassical architecture, visit one of the many museums and galleries. The Victorian Albert Dock is a major tourist attraction, of chic cafes, restaurants and designer shops.

Its impressive history makes York an important tourist attraction. It is still encircled by its 13th and 14th-century city walls. You can find here important marks left by all remarkable European civilizations -- the Romans, the Saxons, the Vikings, the Normans -- among which the most important are the enclosing city walls and the largest European Gothic cathedral -- York Minster. The City Walls form a walkway on both sides of the River Ouse. The Monk Bar gate houses an exhibition tracing the life of 15th-century Plantagenet King Richard III.

The city of Durham, in County Durham, has been settled for over 1,000 years. Celtic monks were the founders of Durham, and when they settled the area, they moved the remains of monk St. Cuthbert here as well, and his remains now reside in Durham Cathedral. The 11th-century Durham Castle was the home of the Anglican Bishop of Durham until the 19th century. Both of those sights are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Much of the old town sits on an area around the River Wear called `The Peninsula`.
Regions of England
The Midlands
The English Midlands are often overlooked but are alluring to travelers. The region is full of history; many cities were founded over two millennia ago, and are some of the oldest cities in England. The Midlands was the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, helping to cement the British Empire`s global influence.
The Cotswolds
Explore quintessentially English villages of honey-colored stone; take in splendid, lively market towns, and visit some of the country`s greatest castles and country houses in the Cotswolds, a collection of small, rural villages with acclaimed reserves and some of the most breathtaking landscapes available in England.
East Anglia
The history of East Anglia (Norfolk, Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire) is vivid and rich; the oldest structures still standing in England, dating from the Bronze Age, are located in East Anglia. A number of large, ornate former monasteries-turned-cathedrals dot Cambridgeshire, from Peterborough to Fenland and the Isle of Ely.
Thames River Valley
The Thames River flows for 215 miles, making it the longest river in England. The area along the Thames has been at the epicenter of much of England`s military and economic history, and has served an important role in the growth of England since the time of the Romans, evidenced from cities such as London, Oxford, and Windsor.
South East England
South East England is a large and geographically diverse region, much of which sits in the Thames River Valley, and here you can experience such sights as the New Forest, the Chiltern Hills, and the White Cliffs of Dover, in addition to Blenheim Palace, Windsor Castle, Canterbury Cathedral, and the list goes on.
South West England
South West England is filled with exciting sights such as Stonehenge, the world-famous prehistoric stone circle; the Roman-era hot springs of Bath; the coasts of Dorset and east Devon; and the tin mines that dot the coasts of Devon and Cornwall. All of these popular attractions are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Experiences & Adventures

England is a country which combines geographic beauty, architectural splendor, and rich history to create a tourist experience which will stay with you for the rest of your life. Together, the three historic cities of Bath, Oxford, and Cambridge are the true Charms of England, and must be experienced to be truly appreciated.

Seaside resorts were the forerunners to today`s British tourism industry, and they still welcome millions of tourists annually after over 150 years in existence. Arguably the most popular of the seaside resorts in England are Brighton, Bournemouth, and Blackpool. Llandudno, a short train ride away in Wales, is also very popular.

The British Isles has a rich history of literary excellence. The history, fantasy, politics, romance, and tradition of the isles have been brought to life and evaluated by authors who span centuries. The canon of literature produced by authors from the British Isles illuminates historical narratives and literary innovations.
