Tourism in Britain

The British Tourist Authority

Comprehensive site for visitors to Britain including informational sections on:

  • Planning your trip

From the Borderlands to the Isle of Wight, from Cornwall to Kent. From the top of the Pennines, to the quagmire of the Great Wash.

Town and country, land and sea, old and new, England is a compelling, entertaining, and all-around enjoyable island.

It doesn't matter whether you've come to take on London, repose in the Cotswolds, or hike the Cumbrian highlands, there's always "something completely different" around the corner from your intended destination.

A memorable trip is one where there's magic in every aspect. We're here to ensure that you get the most charm for your England journey.
