St George’s Day — England Roundup

Updated on April 22, 2016

The Cotswolds

If you had to pick one area to represent the English countryside, it would be the Cotswolds. Beautiful rolling landscapes, picturesque villages and enchanting market towns make a perfect setting to celebrate St George’s Day.

There’s more to the Cotswolds than the countryside, though. Attractions range from the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens to the Cotswold Motor Museum, and from the magnificence of Gloucester Cathedral to the excitement of Cheltenham Racecourse.

East Anglia

East Anglia represents a rich and varied swathe of the country, from the North Sea coast in the east to the fenlands in the west. From Great Yarmouth down to Clacton, you can enjoy a traditional English seaside holiday, while the region is rich in wildlife habitats for the nature-lover.

If you need more, the area’s rich heritage can be experienced in the ancient university city of Cambridge or the pre-Roman city of Colchester — and while you’re exploring the history of Colchester, the kids will love a visit to Colchester Zoo. You can also pay a visit to the home of racing at Newmarket.

The Lake District

The stunning mountains and lakes of England’s Lake District attract visitors from all over the world. There’s walking and mountain-biking for the fit and not-so-fit, while many breathtaking settings can be reached by car.

There’s plenty to do in the Lake District even if you don’t set foot on a mountain. You can visit the Lakeland Motor Museum or the World of Beatrix Potter, or ride a steam-train on the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway, while the kids will love having fun at Go Ape.


There’s far more to do in London than can be fitted into a single visit. You can see traditional sights like the Tower of London or Buckingham Palace, visit the world-famous London Zoo, or take in a West End show. Alternatively, you can view as much as possible by riding on an open-top bus or cruising on the Thames.

Shakespeare Country

St George’s Day also marks the birth and death of arguably the world’s greatest writer, and his home-town of Stratford-upon-Avon has all the Shakespeare sites you could want, and a lot more besides.

You don’t need to wait for St George’s Day to explore this beautiful and heritage-rich country. Just book into a hotel near where you want to go and find what it has to offer.
