History and modernity live hand-in-hand in England, the erstwhile centre of an empire that spanned the globe. It's no stretch to say that just about anything you could possibly want to do can be done here, likely all in the space of a few days. Need some fresh air? Head out into the countryside and stroll Hadrian's Wall. Feeling nostalgic? Palaces, museums, castles, and historical sites aplenty abound. Craving culture? Hit the streets of London in search of world-class cuisine and top-shelf nightlife. England indulges every whim. Let it.
