The Great English Explorer

I am back from Italy and as with every return to terra firma,  I am already itching to plan my next escape. So to the perfect timing of VisitEngland's 101 Things to do before you go abroad launched earlier this week. The English tourist board has invited users to contribute to a Top 101 of ultimate sites and sounds across England, with an interactive map scanning county to county listing Food & Drink, History & Heritage, Arts & Culture, Wildlife & Nature, Health & Fitness and a very un-English Because it's Awesome category, which apparently involves cheese in Gloucester - I will leave you to discover that one for yourself. 
From Windsor Castle for historians in the South to the Farne Islands for naturists in the North as well as alternative offerings such as must-see street art by international graffiti artist, Banksy, in Bath, VisitEngland present both a traditional and contemporary itinerary in time for Summer holiday preparations and the ever popular staycation, which national tourism has realised it must promote to compete with Continental allure. Just don't mention the weather...
