With such a long and rich history, it is no surprise that there are so many things to do and places to visit in England, each one of them varied and fascinating.
England is a mixture of unique traditions, legends and ancient myths. The landscape varies between soft, sandy beaches, rugged mountains, green grassy valleys and deep chilly lakes that are all waiting to be discovered by curious visitors to our shores.
As an Indian national, you will be spoilt for choice between rural areas with rolling hills, lush greenery and ancient woodlands and busy, bustling, eclectic cityscapes full of modern steel and glass megastructures sitting side by side with mellow ancient stone and brick buildings.
There are many major towns and cities that you can explore, each with their own unique history and quirks, such as Manchester, Bristol, Oxford, York and London, each of which is home to lively nightlife, striking architecture, historical landmarks and a mixing pot of different cultures.

Dive into pre-history at Stonehenge
Take in a tour of the world-famous Stonehenge, a prehistoric circle of giant standing stones situated on Salisbury Plain. An attraction that is visited by millions of visitors each year, speculation is rife about their original purpose or meaning.
What adds to their mystery is that the standing stones are made from bluestone, a stone that is not native to the area but is actually found over 150 miles away in Wales. No matter what the reason for their construction, they truly are an amazing feat of human determination and clever planning.
Why not arrange a visit to the stones as part of your three-day UK trip through Happy Tourist so you too can try to puzzle out the story behind the stones.
