Where to go in England?? - Page 2

post #16 of 21
I lived in Bedford for just over a year, if you like beer/pubs i can give you one to go to thats very friendly and has a great variety of beers on tap, which are always changing. Someone mentioned Cheddar and Salisbury, which aren't far from Bath so you could go to all of them without spending too much time travelling. Oh and in the south west there are lots of great little pubs/inns and villages. I highly recommend this place (the website is terrible but ive included a couple of pics): http://www.thehighwaymaninn.net/

Thanks for the link. The website makes me a bit nauseous...

The English landscape at its finest - such as I saw this morning - possesses a quality that the landscapes of other nations, however more superficially dramatic, inevitably fail to possess. It is, I believe, a quality that will mark out the English landscape to any objective observer as the most deeply satisfying in the world, and this quality is probably best summed up by the term 'greatness.'...And yet what precisely is this greatness?...I would say that it is the very lack of obvious drama or spectacle that sets the beauty of our land apart. What is pertinent is the calmness of that beauty, its sense of restraint. It is as though the land knows of its own beauty, of its own greatness, and feels no need to shout it.

Near the Maidenhead/Stoke Poges area the first ever bar/pub is still open for business, it's a really cool looking place.
If you are down in Bath; Wells, Cheddar and Glastonbury are all close and all in nice countryside. Bristol has some nice parts too but is a bigger city. Definitely worth spending a few days in the south-west.

We enjoyed taking the train to the Lake District and then renting a car. It is a very charming area. Beautiful scenery, nice pubs, hiking and of course lakes. It is a nice contrast after staying in London and visiting the Cotswolds.
