Lonely Planet chooses England as its NUMBER TWO destination to visit in 2020!

“Where should I go on holiday in 2020?” Well… The Lonely Planet has just chosen the England Coast as its NUMBER TWO destination to visit in the world for 2020!

In the Lonely Planet’s ‘Best In Travel’ 2020 awards, England was selected as the second best place to journey to next year.

Why travel to England? For our Coast!

The Lonely Planet writes that our stunning coastline with the completion of our England Coast Path will be ‘the longest continuous trail of its kind in the world, granting access to the countries entire coastline for the first time’. It will be almost 3000 miles of continuous coastal path!

Visit our quaint seaside villages, from Port Isaac where Doc Martin is filmed, to walking the ‘Poldark’ Cliffs! We have the legends of King Arthur at Tintagel, the myth of Merlin in his cave. Enjoy seafood fresh from the ocean, proper fish and chips on the beach from Rick Stein’s, cream tea and scones with jam, and delicious local real ales.

If 3000 miles sounds like a long way to walk… We run a week-long walking tour through Devon and Cornwall that walks along some of the best highlights of our coastline in the South West of England. Take a look at our 6 Day Devon and Cornwall Walking Tour.

It is no surprise to us that England is a favourite global destination. Our landscape is breathtaking, our history and heritage is vast, and our cuisine has improved so much in the last 20 years that it is un-recognisably good!
