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.
