King George VI prominently declared that ‘the history of York is the history of England’. In reality, it is nigh unfeasible to overvalue York Castle’s renown to the UK’s history.
York Castle possesses an intensely fascinating, captivating past. Discover the allure of this redoubtable castle; you will certainly be entranced by Clifford’s Tower. Despite being in ruins, the tower is truly impressive, a magnificent sight to behold. Outstanding Clifford tower is nearly all of what's left of York Castle, which was first constructed by none other than William the Conqueror.
You cannot take a tour of England without spending some time delving into the history of this extraordinary fortress.
The scholarly centre of Oxford has been, and continues to be, home to a profusion of extraordinary intellects. It is recognised as the ‘city of dreaming spires’, a term devised by legendary poet Matthew Arnold. This term refers to its truly appealing architectural landmarks. The University of Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world. It is also, certainly, deemed one of the most illustrious universities on the planet. Some great and illustrious authors have been linked with Oxford, including Oscar Wilde, Philip Pullman, Iris Murdoch and Lewis Carroll.
Windsor is equally an appealing destination for any visitor to delve into. Be astounded by Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House and St George’s Chapel. Marvel at the unrivalled lavish majesty of the State Apartments and Drawing Gallery and view celebrated artefacts from the Royal Collection. St George’s Chapel is enchanting in its Gothic grandeur; and possesses a rather disturbing aura as the burial place of ten distinguished past monarchs. Queen Mary’s Dolls’ House is an exceptional work of art, the most beguiling dolls’ house in the world.
Stratford upon Avon is, of course, first and foremost celebrated as being Shakespeare’s birthplace. It is consequently the clear-cut town to visit if you have ever been mesmerised by the mellifluous writings of Shakespeare. Stratford attracts around three million visitors per annum. Why not pay a visit the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, one of the most eminent cultural venues in the UK?
Finally, on any tour of England you must ensure you embark upon some kind of London tour. Explore enthralling areas of the capital, including Covent Garden, Piccadilly, Shoreditch, Kensington – and many more.
