3 Places to Visit in England, and No London Is Not on the List! #1




Quote of the day: 
Certain things in life simply have to be experienced -and never explained. Love is such a thing. 
-Paulo Coelho



Tell someone you are travelling England, and their first thought will be: London. Being such a cosmopolitan city and one of the most famous in the world, its not hard to see why visitors would prefer to visit the city known for its landmarks.  But when you do visit, and after taking in the sights there are other beautiful areas of the country that hold vast beauty and landscape.

Below are a list of 3 places -out of many, in England that will prove to be worth the effort in visiting.


1. Exmouth, Devon

Exmouth is a picturesque port town and sea side resort situated in the county of Devon, South West England. Surrounded by the Devon countryside, Exmouth is a bustling town offering a wide array of things to do, from wining and dining to entertaining things like bowling and water sports -which it is famous for. The air is clean and its got 2 miles of sandy beach. Not bad for a small town. Exmouth is over 3 hours from London.


2. Brighton

Brighton is said to be the most vibrant seaside resort in England and has been voted as one of the top 10 cities with brilliant beaches. A seaside resort, Brighton is the largest part of the city of Brighton and Hove in East Sussex, south east England. There are numerous attractions including the Brighton Pier, the Royal Pavilion, and the Brighton Marina -said to be the largest man made Marina in Europe when built. It is has also long been considered as the the UK's gay capital. Brighton is about an hour from London.


3. Cambridge

Cambridge is a small but beautiful city worth visiting. It is the county town of Cambridgeshire, situated on the river cam, in the East Anglia area of England. A city famous for its scientists and universities, one of which is among the best in the world. Its historic town center can only be visited by foot, as no cars are allowed. Its greater to explore by foot as its a relatively compact city -famous also for being the cycling capital of the UK (one in four residents cycle to work) and one of the safest places to cycle in the country. Things to do include: checking out its great and majestic architecture, colleges, museums, shops and cafes, going punting on the river cam, and the Cambridge University Botanical Garden. Cambridge is less than an hour away from London.

As with all things, this is only a small list of places I've been to, and I may compile another travel list soon. Have you got any favourite places you've visited in England, or planning to visit? Do share in the comments below.



Peace. Love. Light*

  4. Yes, England has many wonderful places, but for me, no visit to England is complete if I do not visit my home town of London. Valerie

  6. Of these three, I've only visited Cambridge. It's been well over 10 years since my last trip to the UK and I'd love to return! I especially enjoyed Bath and Oxford.

  8. Brighton would suit me the best, I guess. Cambridge looks so Harry Potter - like :) I've never been to England, but I'm a definite England fan!

  9. I have not been to England. I must admit that there are sites in London that I would like to see if I were there. At the same time I always prefer to see the countryside of any place I go. That is where folks like me live.

  10. I have a particular fondness for Cambridgeshire where I lived as a boy for several years.

  12. Thank you for sharing these beautiful photos and insights. Brighton I've heard about, and seen movies with featured the city/beach/pier, etc. Cambridge is where I would, as an academic and historian, like to spend most of my time. It's got so many of the things that I enjoy and it is so incredibly beautiful!

  13. We must try to at least visit Brighton the next time we are in England.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Great suggestions. I hope you get to visit them, and a few other places this summer too.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yes, all three are lovely places.
    When you start to make a list of great places, we are quite spoilt for choice.

    I would just like our summer weather to be a little more settled!

    All the best Jan

  16. While having been abroad a number of times I have never been to England. I hope to visit at some point in the near future. All three cities sound fascinating. The middle picture is so beautiful with the water reflecting the image of the building.

  18. Hi Blogoratti! I'm sorry I haven't stopped by in a while. Life has been hectic. But I spotted your post in my blog roll and visited. Low and behold, you featured Brighton! I was just there in late May, and I can say that it is a fascinating, but schizophrenic place. I absolutely loved it and hope to go back ~ which may happen because my sister-in-law is living in Hove fore a couple of years. I hope all is well with you!

  26. I plan to visit every place you've listed. Even London. The pic -Brighton, I love so much. One day when I get my money right, I will need to take 2 weeks off to thoroughly enjoy the trip.

  27. I forgot to compliment the quote you posted. LOVE it.

  28. I remember hundreds of thousands of starlings and their patterns in evening sky over the pier in Eastbourne. Then one morning they were all gone. It's a fine town and good place for walking.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've not been to either, but I would add York (the old Roman wall, the cathedral and the rail museum) to your list. As for a place in England on my bucket list--Penzance!

  31. Hmmm everything South of Watford? It seems the north / south divide exists outside the UK. And why just England? I'm holidaying in Wales this year and Scotland is beautiful.

    1. I have been there about 5 times and I still long to see more :) I keep warning family and friends, I should live in London for a while. We won't discuss how long a "while" is ..

  37. __South East of New York city is a beach area, though not as attractive as England's Brighton, that NY area may long ago been given the title -Brighton Beach- because of the parallel. _m

  41. Beautiful places to visit. xoxo

  42. But the north of the UK is beautiful too - Liverpool, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Glasgow & Manchester are vibrant, exciting cities; the Lake District and the Highlands are wild and wonderful; there are amazing coastlines at Morecambe, and Iona, and Robin Hood's Bay; And that doesn't include Wales! Which has Cardiff. And Doctor Who, and the Gower, and Portmeirion, and castles to die for! And here I am, living in France!!!!

  43. I would enjoy visiting any of these places. All so beautiful and filled with their own charm. Maybe, someday.

    Peace, light and love...

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm stocking up the ideas for one day. Very beautiful. Truthfully, I'd better just move there for a year because I need to see EVERYTHING. =)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Brighton is certainly one my 'must visit list' now.
    Oxford should be on the list or at least the next one :)

  50. Yes, I visited London many years ago and while I would like to return someday, I agree with your comment that there are better choices. I's been to Stratford on Avon and would like to visit the Cotswolds as we have friends there who we met when they were in the states touring.
