England has an outsized impact on the world, both culturally and historically. Despite only 93,000 square miles throughout all of the United Kingdom (and only 50,000 in England), which would make it only the 12th biggest state in the United States, the island nation has a long and distinct history that is on full display alongside the storied landscapes that have captivated the imagination of poets and scholars for thousands of years.
With so much to see in a relatively small space, you can plan day trips from London to many of the national parks, the nearly 3,000 miles of coastline, or the historic sites that dot the countryside. Few nations on earth are home to as many still readily accessible historical wonders - from the cathedrals and palaces of the Middle Ages to the squat huts and village centers around which people have gathered for centuries. Whether hunting castles on long abandoned estates away from the hustle and bustle of modern life or visiting the tombs and monuments that have withstood dynasties across time, scholars and history buffs alike will find much to enjoy of England's past.
