Day Trips From London (You Need to Take)
Oxford is that you can set off from the train station on foot, and everything – from the most famous colleges, to historic pubs, to the many free museums – are within walking distance.
Named after its Roman-built baths, it is thought to be the only natural thermal spa in England, and the city was given World Heritage site status in 1987.
Cotswolds Towns and Villages
An area of outstanding natural beauty AONB, the natural beauty is enhanced by the honey-coloured natural stone that many of the houses are built from.
Stratford-upon-Avon is a worthwhile visit at any time of year, but I particularly recommend visiting around Shakespeare’s birthday, which is April 23rd. The week of his birthday sees a huge festival of celebrations.
There are few things more quintessentially English than a day trip to the seaside. Brighton is vegan foodie heaven… full disclosure: the main reason I go there is to eat!
From its importance in maritime history, to Banksy – Bristol is a vibrant city that is so much more than a student town. Spilling with culture, it’s a fiercely diverse and dynamic city, full of life and energy.
Windsor Castle also makes a lovely day trip from London by train. The actual home of Her Majesty the Queen (she doesn’t actually live in London, she lives here!)
