England is a country of impressive diversity and variety. The Heart of this country lies in both its timelessness and modernity. The cultural diversity of Birmingham reflects a very different England to the one of Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon and the villages of Warwickshire. London is full of culture and heritage.
The East of England has preserved much of rural landscape, architecture and traditions. A rich history and lots of attractions such as the Roman remains of Colchester. The Cheviots of Northumberland, the County Durham and the peaceful countryside of Tees Valley are remarkable sightseeings in North East England. Fashionable seaside resorts, Georgian spa towns, and tranquil parks and gardens are typical in South East England.
The South West has his contrast in the cosmopolitan appeal of Bristol and the beautiful countryside surrounding the Roman springs of Bath to the wild coastal scenery of Cornwall. Yorkshire has history and culture, vibrant cities such as Sheffield and Leeds and a beautiful countryside from Ilkley Moor to Wharfedale.
Most of England consists of rolling hills, but it is more mountainous in the north with a chain of low mountains, the Pennines, a low-rising mountain range in England. They form an unbroken range stretching from the Peak District in Derbyshire, through the Yorkshire Dales to the Cheviot Hills on the Anglo-Scottish border. The region is widely considered to be one of the most scenic areas of Britain. The North Pennines have been declared an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) as has Nidderdale, while portions of the Pennines are incorporated into the Peak District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Northumberland National Park. The Peak District forms the southern end of the Pennines and much of the area is uplands above 300 m, with a high point on Kinder Scout of 636 m. Britain's first long distance footpath, the Pennine Way, runs the full length of the Pennine chain. It has long been popular with walkers. A number of Youth Hostels are provided along the route to break up the trek, in addition to many private establishments offering accommodation. It is easy for the walker to undertake just a short section of the trail.
