Things to see and do in England

London: the one and only

No trip would be complete without a visit to the country’s capital: a haven for culture be it stage, screen or art. Perhaps you’ll catch a musical, or while away time at one of many free museums. Immerse yourself in history at the British Museum, art at the Tate Modern and Tate Britain or learn about the city itself at the Museum of London.
   
  
Once you’ve worked up an appetite sight-seeing, you’ll be spoilt for choice. The restaurant scene caters for every taste and budget - ranging from Michelin-starred fine dining to street food and pop-up restaurants. It’s a great city for families too, with London Zoo and Kew Gardens on your doorstep.
   
 
Of course nobody should leave London without watching the changing of the guard outside Buckingham Palace or seeing iconic buildings such as Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.


Explore the great English countryside in your Avis rental car

The countryside has so much to offer. Rent a cottage, stay in a B&B or pitch a tent. Whatever you choose, Avis car hire is the right option to get you started. If it’s hiking you’re after, head north for the Lake District’s rugged peaks, the Peak District’s rolling hills or Yorkshire’s natural unspoilt National Parks.
   
  
If you fancy exploring the south, then the chalk hills of the South Downs could be just the ticket. There are also stunning coastlines: from the Jurassic coast, Dover’s white cliffs and Cornwall’s Lizard Peninsula in the south, to Northumberland’s rural coastlines in the north. Plus the unique scenery of the Norfolk Broads. Experience the holiday of a lifetime and spend the day touring this expanse of rivers and lakes by boat.


Towns and cities

Car rental is the perfect option for nipping between the different cities, towns and villages that are just waiting to welcome you. Soak up the contemporary living and diverse entertainment offered by regional greats such as Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Leeds, Bristol or Nottingham.
   
  
Step back in time in the historic cities of Bath, York, Stratford-upon-Avon, Chester, Oxford or Canterbury. Enjoy fish and chips at the seaside resorts of Brighton, Whitby or Blackpool. Or spend a lazy afternoon driving through picturesque villages in the Cotswolds, Devon, Cornwall, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Don’t forget to finish your day with a scone or two and a pot of tea.

Annual festivals and events

England is host to thousands of events and festivals each year. Whenever you decide to come, wherever you decide to go, there’s bound to be something happening near you.
   
   
Multicultural Britain: If you are visiting over Chinese New Year or Diwali, you’ll find festivals and celebrations in most towns and cities across the country. Over the summer months most major towns and cities now have their own gay pride festivals, with the biggest outside the capital taking place in Manchester and Brighton. Christmas is great for shopping, illuminations and German markets.
   
   
Folk traditions: If it’s traditional English you want, you won’t be disappointed either. Choose from cheese rolling in Gloucestershire (May), Burning of the Clocks in Brighton (December), Bonfire night celebrations throughout the country (5 November) or Summer Solstice at Stonehenge.
   
  
Music: Summer is the best time for outdoor music festivals. Glastonbury is the biggest and most well-known, but there are many others catering for alternative tastes and families, such as WOMAD – the World of Music, Arts and Dance – in Wiltshire and the Big Green Gathering in Somerset. Many towns and cities also host smaller festivals, such as the Shrewsbury Folk Festival and the Scarborough Jazz Festival.
