England, in fact all of the British Isles, are beautiful and intriguing. Ancient to modern often stand side by side. The countries of England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales at one time ruled independently. Kingdoms were eventually joined, yet each remains unique and distinct.
There is mystery, too! The story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table were real.
Or were they?
Some believe that Tintagel Castle in Cornwall, is where King Arthur ruled. His sword, Excalibur, is guarded by The Lady of the Lake in Dozmary Pool, on Bodmin Moor, if the legends are to be believed.
Some of the most beloved authors, poets, and playwrights are from within the borders of the British Isles. From Jane Austen, who told of the lives of the upper-class society during the Regency Period, to Shakespeare, whose plays are often reimagined into movies.
And then there is Mary Shelley the author of Frankenstein.
Architecture, old and new is often found side by side. The Tower Bridge, often incorrectly called London Bridge, was built in 1886. Along the banks of the Thames is the London City Hall, an ultra-modern glass egg, shaped building.
From castles to landscapes, museums, and theaters, there is history around every corner.
