Top 5 Things to do in England: Alternate List

Unless you’re part of Team 10, we are sure you’re aware that England is a country and not a city. We apologise for making that joke; it was right there for the picking. Anyway let’s get back to our main topic of discussion; here in this article, you will find some of the best things to do in England.

  1. Visit China

Okay, hear us out before you skip this article. England has seen heavy immigration of Chinese nationals from the onset of the 1990s. Most of these Chinese nationals have settled in the East London region and have turned into a little country within the boundaries of the national capital. You will find just about anything you’ll find in China; from exotic ornaments to classic food, this place has got everything.

  1. Sustainable Culture

The Eden project must be on your list if you’re someone who is into sustainability and conservation. The site that is often misrepresented as a horticultural attraction is so much more. The site is often filled with color and culture from around the world with a focus placed on sustainable growth. The location is a must-visit for art enthusiasts and botanical lovers. It is located in Cornwall.

  1. A little piece of Rome

For all, you history enthusiasts, do visit the Hadrian’s Wall which was used for military defense purposes by the Roman Empire in 122 AD. The wall was also used as a center for taxation and visitors can get a glimpse of this military marvel in Northern England.

  1. University Castle

Durham University is actually a castle that was built during the time of King Norman during the 11th century to ensure that he was able to display his control over England to the northern regions of the nation. The university allows the public to visit the castle through pre-booked tours to get a glimpse of the once majestic motte-style castle.

  1. York Minster

The York Minster Cathedral is the largest in Northern Europe; it was built in the early 14th century to establish the power of Christianity in England and the rest of Europe. The main attraction of the Cathedral is the Five Sisters window that stretches to about 16m in height. The windows have a rustic feel to them with their stained design and are a must for history and art enthusiasts.

Usually, a list of the top attractions of England will rarely feature the above-mentioned places. So we went about finding gems lost in the rubble, for you to experience England from a different light.
