Having a car while living in England makes it so much cheaper and easier to travel around in. I was glad I bought a car when I relocated back to the UK. There are many places to visit in England and I’ve toured just a few so far but always aiming to visit more and more. First step is to get a car and go out and tour for yourself.
Getting Around England: Buy a Used Car and Personalise It!
For picking up a car, you could head to a website like Carspring and buy a used car. They have such a cool range of cars in the UK. Once you have your car sorted, you can personalise it and then head out into the wilderness. I recommend you to check out these five spots in England.
Often seen as the jewel of the south coast, “sunny sunny Bournemouth” has a great reputation as a summer beach town. But that’s not where the magic ends. This town also features some of the best bars, restaurants and clubs in England. Add this to the famous “Bournemouth Balloon” that towers over the town and the fact that a local hero took the football team, AFC Bournemouth up from the fourth tier to the Premier league in 5 calendar years.
2.Brighton, East Sussex
Sometimes referred to as a “gay capital”, Brighton offers much more to the world than its gay and lesbian scene. With a pebble beach, a famous pier and the most architecturally rich Pavilion in England, its another thriving seaside resort to keep you excited.
Now that you have a car, you might as well take advantage of the fact that you can drive to Stonehenge. Stonehenge is not a town or village, it’s a load of roads in a field somewhere near Amesbury, north of Salisbury in Wiltshire. Make your own mind up whether this is medieval religious rituals or just a few blocks that remain from an old medieval settlement. Summer solstice here is kind of special.
Home of Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones and veteran backpacker Millwall Neil, Dartford is a town not often toured by travellers. But this makes for an interesting contrast between life in Kent (“the garden of England”) and the big city buzz of London.
Again a musical link comes into play as the famous Beatles are from Liverpool. There are so many Beatles related sights here – the museum, the famous Cavern Club and of course Penny Lane. The city also is home to two famous football teams and strong rivals – Everton and Liverpool.
Park the car and spend at least a night here, as it has a pumping nightlife with lots of good bars. As you can tell, touring England by car is an excellent idea and I can’t wait to explore more.
