I live in Northern California. My work, my love and my passion (everyone has one) is the UK and its history. I've studied the history for 30 years and have been going over for 23 years.
I operate a small tour company and take 10 people at a time to "my beloved England" on a yearly basis. We explore the backroads and all of those places you might never have heard of. A large majority of the places we visit are not accessible to the large tour coaches. We schedule only 2 sights per day to allow plenty of time to explore and also to allow flexibility if there's some special place that you heard about that you want to see "or" if you want to hang a right (or left) at the next road just to see what's down there. For further information visit my website.
There's "so" much to see and discover in England. It doesn't really matter whether your interests are castles, villages, Cathedrals, churches or ancient sites. It's all there. While the main tourist attractions(London, Stonehenge, Windsor Castle) are interesting, important historical places and should be seen, get off the motorways and explore the back roads. That's where you'll "really" discover England.
