7 Cities to visit in England to soak up it's History, Culture and Cuisine! 

No matter what time of the year you go, England always has something exciting to offer! With exploring historical monuments and museums, visiting pubs and restaurants to sample every kind of cuisine under the sun, strolling in parks or on busy shopping streets, you won’t have enough time to fit it all in!

1. London

Start your visit in London where layers of history are seamlessly interspersed with the hustle of modern life. We recently visited London after a gap of 30 years and were amazed at how much things had changed, yet how much they had remained the same! Spicy Chicken Keema in London!

2. Brighton

From London, we took the train to Brighton and fell in love with this famous seaside town. The pier, the beach and promenade, the shops and restaurants and especially the people made it all very memorable! Did you know that Brighton has a special connection to Indian curry? Read all about it in my blog here!

3. Bath

For fans of Jane Austen, no trip to England is complete without a visit to Bath, where she lived for a few years and also based some of her books here. Bath Abbey and The Roman Baths are just some of the treasures you will find here. And when your feet need a rest, have a freshly baked scone along with cream tea, in one of the teashops, there’s nothing quite like it!

4. Salisbury

The mysterious circle of ancient stones standing in Stonehenge is one of the most visited sites in England. Be awed by this silent reminder of an ancient civilisation. Nearby is the city of Salisbury, where you can spend some time exploring its lovely cathedral and charming town. Sticky Toffee Pudding in Stonehenge Salisbury!

5. Portsmouth

A visit to Portsmouth was full of a sense of Déjà vu for me, as I had heard so much about it from my parents when I was growing up in India. They lived in Portsmouth for a few years after getting married and it was with a sense of joy that I retraced their steps in this historic city. Lamb Rogan Josh in Porthsmouth!

6. Canterbury

The charming, historic city of Canterbury is well known to everybody from the famous book written by Chaucer – The Canterbury tales. For centuries, pilgrims have come to pray in the cathedral here and the town grew up around it with many lovely old buildings and streets to explore. Masala Omelette in Canterbury!

7. Cambridge

Cambridge, with the beautiful river Cam running right through town and gorgeous, old college buildings is worth a visit. Make sure to take a ride in a punt to get a behind the scenes look at this lovely city!
