Honeymoons in Western Europe
An English honeymoon could be your chance to discover the unique blend of the ancient and the ultramodern that London has to offer, or a traditional experience of cups of tea, quiet villages and picturesque countryside. Not for nothing is England known as a 'green and pleasant land'. Which part of this diverse nation you choose is up to you.
The huge capital city of London is home to many world-famous landmarks and of course the British Royal Family. The ornate architecture of the Houses of Parliament and the spiritual presence surrounding St. Paul's Cathedral are unforgettable. Another atmospheric experience is a visit to historic Canterbury Cathedral which is more than 800 years old and a national treasure.
Much more ancient is prehistoric Stonehenge, an arrangement of huge stones which dates back at least 5000 years. Marvel at this overwhelming sight and decide on your answer to the eternal question: how did they get there?
Oxford and Cambridge are the two most important university towns in the country, filled with tradition, history and impressive architecture. Following closely behind is the dramatic cathedral city of Durham in the north, which is surrounded by water on three sides.
The largest cathedral in Europe is the Gothic masterpiece York Minster. The ancient city of York rightly regards itself as the capital of northern England and there is much to see and do here. A stroll along the ancient city walls is highly recommended.
The verdant Lake District is the most picturesque of England's national parks. Covered with tranquil lakes and low mountains, the natural beauty of the Lake District attracts thousands of visitors every year.
