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!
