Today we take you to the seaside town of Brighton and Hove. As the name suggests, it is a combination of two independent cities offering up to 1997 (status of Queen Elizabeth II in 2001), which offer a rich history, beautiful monuments, quirky culture and sports.
Join us to visit the breathtaking town of Windsor, less than 30 kilometers west of London. This historic mansion has been the home of the English royal family since time immemorial, its life-giving artery is the River Thames and its immediate neighbor is the equally famous town of Eton.
Last week we walked through the student town of Eton and today we head to Windsor. Perhaps the most sought-after landmark of the city, which is also its dominant, is Windsor Castle of the same name.
After a short break we return to England, more precisely to the county of Oxfordshire, where we visit one of the most famous university cities in the world - Oxford. This 160,000 center of education offers almost forty dormitories, amazing history, monuments, personalities and, last but not least, its noble atmosphere.
We visited the English city of Oxford last week. We saw a few sights and places of interest, but we missed Oxford University.
Today we look to Brighton, more precisely to the local town hall, located on Bartolomějské Square near the coast. The neoclassical building from the 1930s serves not only as a municipal office, but also holds weddings and you can visit one unusual museum.
Today we look to the English Channel coast. Our goal this time will be the famous Seven Sisters, which extends between Seaford and Eastbourne in the south of England.
Brighton's seafront offers many attractions. Today we will visit the British Airways i360 futuristic lookout tower, located opposite the equally famous West Pier.
After visiting the 360-degree lookout tower, we will stroll down the Brighton Coast today, decorated with architecturally impressive buildings. If we headed toward King's Road, we could get to the renovated 1884 Victorian gazebo.
From the magnificent Palace Pier through the Old Steine garden, we head to one of Brighton's most sought-after attractions, the former Royal Pavilion.
Today we visit the second oldest working aquarium in the world - the Sea Life Brighton. It is interesting not only because of its history dating back to 1872, but you can also take a walk through the longest English submarine tunnel.
After the natural and architectural beauty of Wales we will move to the south of England. More precisely to the historic region of Sussex, where our first stop will be the town of Lewes.
Brighton is the most popular and famous sea resort on the English Channel. Once, this large city was a simple fishing village which became increasingly popular among English nobility in the 18th century. They travelled here to breathe fresh sea air and relax in luxurious spa. Today, Brighton is open to anyone. Its pebble beaches are lined with souvenire stores and various attractions.
The Gateway to the World. This is the nickname of a port city in south England sitting on the meeting of the Itchen and Test rivers.
Birmingham is known mostly to the fans of sports for it was here where the European league was born as well as the sport of tennis (in the end of 1850s). The city was founded in the times of Anglo-Saxon immigraiton. However, it became the center of trade only in the mid 12th century.
Bristol is a large English city and an unitary authority where live around 400, one million people respectively.
Last week we have seen one of the most famous district of London, Soho. Once it was a red light district. Today, however, we move on.
Once, London was the largest city in the world. They ruled the entire British empire from here. Precious goods was imported from all around the world and ships departed for adventure and came back later. Today, people from all around the world come here – either to trade, work, admire amazing sights, enjoy local atmosphere or get a taste of world's cuisine.
North Devon is a part of Devonshire, a county in the southwest of England. In the north it borders the Bristol Bay. This area is great for anyone intending to experience true English countryside and nature. Tourism and agriculture creates significant proportion of income of the local population. Thanks to that, the region has kept its 19th century atmosphere and its typical meadows, fields, and wild coastline.
Cadair Idris is 893 meters high. It is located in the southern part of Snowdonia National Park and is located in northwest Wales. It is considered by many to be the second most beautiful and significant mountain in the area (just after the highest peak of Wales, Snowdon). The advantage is its significantly lesser fame, on the slopes you do not meet many tourists and you can enjoy undisturbed beautiful views of the surrounding wild landscape.
Bath was a spa town in the past, designed especially for sick and crippled visitors. At the beginning of the 18th century, however, it began to attract individuals with a desire for entertainment and relaxation in a picturesque setting. So over time, the visit to Bath became a tradition for many, and the city soon reached its greatest fame.
