Der Norden Englands - das sind geheimnisvolle Moore, wilde Bergregionen, atemberaubende Naturerlebnisse in vier herrlichen Nationalparks und zahllose stolze Burgruinen, die von einer wehrhaften Vergangenheit zeugen.
Beschaulicher präsentiert sich die Mitte des Landes, wo sanfte Hügellandschaften, friedlich grasende Schafe hinter Trockensteinmauern, Fachwerkhäuser und urige Pubs das Bild prägen. Typisch sind Großstädte, die nach einer neuen Identität suchen und sich mutig modernisieren. Denn hier brummte einst Englands Schwerindustrie, die die Industrielle Revolution befeuerte und deren Profiteure ihr Geld in prächtige Herrensitze steckten.
Ganz anders wiederum Englands Osten: flach, mit unendlichen Weiten, Seenlandschaften und kilometerlangen Sandstränden für das (extrem erfrischende) undesirable im Meer.
