WHAT TO EAT & DRINK IN ENGLAND

Cottage pie, Cornish pastries, fish & chips, bangers & mash… English food is warm and welcoming and we’ll show you where to find the best eats in the country.

COTTAGE PIE

A British pub-food staple, you can't go past a traditional cottage pie served hot! A generations-old favorite, it's story began as a clever idea of housewives, to create a warm and hearty meal from leftovers like cooked beef or lamb, packed with vegetables like peas and carrots, and lashings of mashed potatoes. Delicious!

SCONES

It doesn’t get more British than scones and tea! If you need an afternoon pick-me-up, head to your local cafe and pick out a classic English scone - the best kinds are fluffy on the inside and crispy on the outside, and smothered with clotted cream and jam - and wash it all down with a steaming pot of tea.

CORNISH PASTRY

These baked pockets of heaven are made from shortcrust pastry filled with a mix of beef, potatoes, onions, swede and egg. When cooked together it forms a rich gravy, sealed in its own delicious wrapping. The traditional Cornish pastry originated as the portable lunch of Cornish tin miners who couldn’t return to the surface at lunchtime.

WHEN IS BEST TO VISIT ENGLAND

Whether you want to go city sightseeing or explore the countryside, there’s always a good time for a trip to England.

BEST TIME TO VISIT ENGLAND’S CITIES

England’s cities have something to offer whatever the weather. Expect breezy beer gardens in summer and cosy pubs in winter, while autumn and spring offer pleasant temperatures and fewer crowds.

BEST TIME TO EXPLORE ENGLAND’S HISTORIC TREASURES

You’re more likely to get blue skies and sunshine in the summer months of June, July and August, but it’s also great to visit England’s historic sites in the milder days of autumn and spring.

BEST TIME TO GO WALKING IN ENGLAND

From the Cotswolds to the Lake District, England is packed with gorgeous walking trails and charming countryside. It’s best to get out there in the summer months, but we also love the autumn leaves or lush springtime.

PACKING TIPS FOR ENGLAND

Waterproof coat

England is known for its drizzle and downpours, so pack a waterproof coat to keep you cosy and dry on all your adventures

An umbrella

It’s not uncommon to experience four seasons in one day in England, so pack an umbrella both for rainy days and for when the sun comes out.

A day bag

Whether you want to hit the bustling streets of London or go strolling through charming villages, a day bag will come in handy for all the souvenirs and treasures you find.

HOW TO TRAVEL RESPONSIBLY IN ENGLAND

Take the Tube

Before you hop in a taxi for one, think about taking the Tube on your London trip. This underground metro system can take you all over the London region in a cheaper and more local way.

Leave no trace

Help keep England beautiful by making sure you take all your rubbish with you and reduce your plastic waste by reusing bags and bottles.

Eat local

Head to the charming town pub for a Sunday Roast, or the local fish ‘n chips shop for a newspaper filled with greasy goodness. You’ll get to meet the friendly locals and see the real England.
