England Travel Guide

England Travel Guide is a travel and tourist website about the country of England. It is part of the David's Travel Guides website. As of 2018, the population of England was estimated to be 55.98 million people. A well known visited tourist destination in England is the Norfolk Broads.

If you are planning on a visit to England as a tourist then a great England holiday is so much more than just lying on a beach or shopping until you drop, to get the most from your travel adventure to England you need to know where to find the right places to see and tourist information that will enable you to get the best from your visit. England is a country waiting for you to explore and discover its cities, towns and villages, people and culture.

This is a massive undertaking for one person to capture a county the size of England but I will endeavor over time to populate England Travel Guide with information about travel, tourism, geography, history, culture, aviation, the economy and many other helpful and fascinating details about the cities, towns and villages across England.

A Little bit of England History

Awaiting article.

Counties of England

The public administration system in England works on the decentralization principle, which ensures that the decision making and executing processes take place at the lowest possible level and closest to the citizen.

The England public administration system has many common qualities with systems of other European counties but also has typical elements exclusive to the British nation, due to historical, social and economic reasons.

This England Travel Guide includes information on the counties of England. The counties of England today are mostly named after the historical and geographical regions of the country.

A Borough or Parish is the third level of administrative division.

Some of the towns in a Council can be centres of more than one Borough or Parish. The reason is that in several cases the town itself and its surroundings form separate entities of administrative division.

The railway network in England is run by Greater Anglia, Address: The Hub, Colchester North Railway Station, North Station Road, Colchester, Essex, CO1 1JS.

Boarders and different countries came about because of pride and attempt to reach God by man's own hands (Tower of Babel) so the Almighty confused their language. God offers us forgiveness and reconciliation with Himself and then requires us to care for others and try to get on with others no matter where they originate from.

In other words, God did not originally design people to be separate from each other, this came about because of man's sin.

In God's new world to come, there will be no divisions among people and we will be united under Christ. No fighting, no borders, no wars, no discrimination. God's new world will be at peace and those who love God in this world will get on together without any problems.

This is why I like to travel and visit other countries and associate myself with different nationalities and cannot understand why a multicultural country like Britain wishes to leave Europe. Sure, not all is well with the EU but turning your back on 27 neighbours makes no sense to me.

England has every type of accommodation available from simple rooms to the grand hotels and everything in between.

Accommodation in England


Regional Food

One of the delights of travelling is to sample the food of the part of the world you are visiting. England will not be a disappointment to your palette.

Regional Food England


City Break

Norwich is at the heart of Norfolk and each year thousands of tourists descend on the city to experience the sites and sounds and taste the food on offer. Although, it now has an abundance of fast food outlets and all the modern shops that you can find in any other European city, if you seek out the traditional Norfolk restaurants and explore it's ancient quarter, you will discover this historic capital of Norfolk.

Norfolk Broads

This famous Norfolk tourist attraction has 125 miles of lock free waterways waiting for you to discover. The Norfolk Broads is not only about boats but there is an abundance of wildlife to see and walks in peaceful surroundings. Relax and slow down from your busy life, enjoy the local pubs and regional food.

Nofolk Coast

I love the Norfolk coast with it's good beaches and seaside towns like Cromer, the market town and fishing port of King's Lynn.

Interesting Facts about Norfolk

If you are from the county of Norfolk, you might know about some interesting facts about the county. Please let me know so I can share it with others.

Broads National Park

The Broads National Park covers an area of 117 square miles (303 square kilometres), with the majority being in Norfolk, with over 120 miles (200 kilometres) of navigable waterways. There are seven rivers and 63 broads, the vast majority is less than 13 feet (4 metres) deep. Thirteen broads are generally open to navigation, with a further three having navigable channels.

On foot, cycling or on horseback

This region is full of hiking trails and is very popular with those that like the outdoor life. A number of cycle routes criss cross the county. Horse lovers can enjoy the bridal ways in Norfolk.


Norfolk in winter is when you need to wrap up warm before going for bracing walks. Watch the geese arrive for winter at RSPB Titchwell Marsh or admire the winter gardens at Pensthorpe Natural Park, Fakenham. With over 200 animals and birds, explore a different country, South America and their indoor play area, Jungle Tumbles, at the Amazona Zoo in Cromer.


Norfolk being an agricultural land, each year Plough Sunday celebrations usually involve bringing a ploughshare into a church with prayers for the blessing of the land. It is traditionally held on the Sunday after Epiphany, the Sunday between 7 January and 13 January. Accordingly, work in the fields did not begin until the day after Plough Sunday: Plough Monday.

Norfolk Historic Buildings Group

The Norfolk Historic Buildings Group (NHBG) was founded in 2000 to bring together people who enjoy and appreciate old buildings and want to learn more about them.
