In England

England Travel Guide

England continues to be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. London in particular is one of the most visited cities and draws people in with its charm, history, and pubs. England’s smaller cities, like Bath and Oxford, are equally as fascinating with a lot of culture and fewer crowds. Liverpool boasts a rich music history as the birthplace to The Beatles. The countryside has fascinating estates and natural beauty. England has a lot to do and see in it. Remember though, England with its high prices and strong currency is a place where budgets can go to die. Be frugal here. Once you get outside of London, prices drop dramatically. I personally think the best the country has to offer is outside its capital anyways.

Typical Costs

Accommodation – Hostels cost between 20-40 GBP a night for a dorm room. Amenities are good and usually include free internet, breakfast, a common room, TV, and laundry facilities. Budget hotels offer the same amenities and start around 70 GBP per night for a twin room. Apartment rentals begin at the same price per night.

Food – You can eat cheap in England if you really pay attention. Fish and chips or a kebab are only a couple of pounds, or about 3 GBP. Indian and Asian food can be purchased for 6 GBP for lunch entrees. A week’s worth of groceries will cost around 45 GBP. Eating out a nice restaurants will really eat into your budget if you’re not careful though. Expect to pay around 22 GBP for a restaurant meal.

Transportation – In the United Kingdom, the National Rail service is always expensive, no matter how long your trip is. It’s one thing citizens in this part of the world love to complain about. A journey from London to Liverpool can cost as little as 25 GBP or it can cost as much as 130 GBP during peak hours (mid-day). By booking your ticket with the National Rail over a week in advance and during off peak hours, you can secure you tickets for as little as 13 GBP. The cheapest way to travel around is via the Megabus, where fares start around 1 GBP. You’ll need to book at least a month in advance on popular routes to get the special fare though.

Activities – Most activities are cheap in England. Museums in England are free, though castles and other attractions entrance fees are around 10 GBP (Tower of London is about 25 GBP!). You’ll find most other activities (cycling, wine tours, ancient ruins) that last a day tend to be around 77 GBP.

Interesting facts:

In England, a civil parish is a territorial designation and, where they are found, the lowest tier of local government below districts and counties. It is an administrative parish, in comparison to an ecclesiastical parish.
