  • Mike:

    I just came back from a trip to England and I very much enjoyed the Midlands. Nottingham for example is very easy to get to by train from London. There is a castle right in Nottingham and it is also relatively close to Chatsworth House. Plus I found the people to be more my type. Very friendly.
    Check out the east midlands.

    I also went to Cardiff and if you’re interested in welsh history, that is a good place to start.

    Although the majority of the population of England live in large cities, some rarely venturing into the countryside, most of England is rural (see Google Earth).

    In the North there is dramatic scenery. The Lake District in the NW has beautiful mountains and lakes. The Yorkshire Dales have wild moorland with nice villages tucked into the valleys.

    In the Midlands there is the Peak District, similar to the Yorkshire Dales.

    In the South, there are rolling hills, farmland and picture postcard villages.

    Castles are everywhere. For example: In the North, there is Richmond Castle. In the Midlands is Warwick Castle. In the South, there is Leeds Castle.

    If you go to Wales, you will be treated to beautiful countryside and magnificent castles built by Edward I.

    Just to add to RR’s answer. a few more especially beautiful areas of countryside:
    The South Shropshire Hills around Ludlow and Church Stretton in Shropshire encompassing the Long Mynd, the Stipperstones and Wenlock Edge. http://www.ludlow.org.uk http://www.visitsouthshropshire.co.uk (Ludlow has a castle)
    The Jurassic Coast in Dorset is a beautiful world heritage site coastline and inland Dorset is beautiful too http://www.jurassiccoast.co.uk
    Close to London you have the Chiltern Hills, the Surrey Hills and the South Downs National Park
    There is a castle in the beautiful town of Arundel in the South Downs
