    I've always wanted to go, but could never afford to sad
    Maybe some day when the kids are all grown up and move out & we can save up... like a retirement vacation.

    I wonder if Alfred asked this question of the Norman, William, in 1066?

    We went last year to visit my in-laws. There are alot of things to attract visitors there, though. Among my favorite places to visit were Stratford upon Avon, London and York.

    Have always wanted to but money has kept me from doing so.  The history of the place has attracted me, I've wanted to visit all the places I've read about.  To name them would not only take all day, but I'd have to get my books out for reference. 

    In response to David's answer below....  That is actually the first time I knew I wanted to go, when reading a book set in the year 1066!!

    I'm diabetic and I go to Kings college hospital, which gives me the greatest care available in the world on the national health service. I also go because I'm English, and because my Dad lives there

    What attracts me when I was in England are the beautiful attractions there like the Tower of London, Flamingo Land Theme Park & Zoo, Yorkshire  and many more. If you want to experience also a different culture then go to England.

    I have been living in England for the past 5 months and have travelled through the length and breadth of this country - well, almost. the best places to visit are Cornwall and isle of Wight and Brighton and all those tourist attractions in Devon-Dorset if you want to see the sea. but the best sea views can be had from the remoter regions of Cornwall - Cornish sea views and sun kissed golden beaches are magnificent.

    another must visit place is lake district in Cumbria in the extreme north. here the landscape is similar to Scotland's - hills, cliffs, lakes, brooks, streams. it is truly the most beautiful place in England.

    you should definitely visit city of bath spa and cheddar caves/gorge in north east Somerset.

    you can take a look through my hubs:

    I've lived in England all my live and never really gave it much thought about people wanting to visit until I met my wife, she is American and it's funny the things her family and friends have ask me about England who have never been.
    Does the queen have a house near you
    Did your family once live in a castle
    Are all the roads still cobbles even on the free-way
    What is your family doing for thanksgiving

    We have been married for two years and currently live in England so we have a lot of visitors from the USA come see us, I created a new hub about Durham (my city) for people visiting to give a point of view from someone who lives in the area  http://executivecatering.hubpages.com/h … ty-England
    I think if everyone made a hub about the area they lived it would make a nice alternative to the normal tour guides as these are from real people writing about their home and should be more informative and genuine.
