Food. British cuisine has been stereotyped as bland and uninteresting, often by the Brits themselves, so it might come as a surprise that food is quietly one of the most enjoyable things in England. Melting pots like London and Manchester are absolute culinary meccas, offering not only authentic Indian and Chinese food, but also intricate cuisine from such far-flung places as East Africa, the Levant, and the Caribbean that can be hard to find elsewhere. If you've any space left, add the classic full English breakfast, iconic fish n chips, and some of the best vegan restaurants on the planet, and you're in for a foodie adventure to remember.
Dinosaurs. Well, not the mighty reptiles themselves - that'd be too bold a claim for any destination - but their impressive fossils that have been found along the so-called Jurassic Coast in Southeast England. Nowadays a scenic coastal stretch of some 150 km (95 mi), it was once inhabited by such fantastic beasts as ichthyosaurs and giant pliosaurs, not to mention ancient sharks, hyenas, and rhinos. Visit the children-friendly Dinosaur Museum in Dorchester, then drive to see the coast itself - places like Lyme Bay and Lulworth Cove are as picturesque as anywhere you'll find in England.
Bath. Inhabited since at least the Iron Age, known to Romans as Aquae Sulis and hailed in Old English poems, this historic city's hot springs have attracted visitors since the time immemorial. The old Roman Baths are one of the most interesting landmarks in Britain, and the impressive city abbey, many fine examples of Georgian architecture, and the Herschel Astronomy Museum are just as fun to explore. As good as its name, Bath also maintains a number of high-quality spas, both of natural hot waters and of more modern origin.
