England Travel Guide

My (Sabrina’s) mother is an Anglophile. While my classmates were watching Friends, Sex in the City, Dawson’s Creek, etc… My mom and I were watching Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Keeping up Appearances, Midsomer Murders, and every British period drama ever made. So, I didn’t understand pop culture references for a good decade. While my friends ate after school snacks, I savored afternoon tea. Earl grey always. I traveled to England with my parents twice when I was in elementary school. But, alas, all I can remember is a wildlife park and our particularly cozy B&B in the Cotswolds. Fast forward 20+ years, and I finally returned to England. I’m a bit predisposed to liking England (thanks Mom), but I wasn’t prepared to fall in love with England. And, that I did. Kati and I spent a few weeks in Southern England, exploring Brighton and the South Downs. And, then we took a most marvelous road trip through Cornwall. My life changed. Now, I’m plotting our return.

Seven Sisters Cliffs Walk - Top Experiences in Engalnd

Walking from Seaford to Eastbourne: Seven Sisters Cliffs Hike

The Seven Sisters are a series of chalk cliffs stretching from Cuckmere Haven to Birling Gap in East Sussex, England. These white cliffs along the English Channel are one of Southern England’s most striking landscapes. The best way to experience the Seven Sisters cliffs is by walking the coastal trail from Seaford to Eastbourne. The 21.9 km (13.6 miles) Seven Sisters walk is rather easy, though not flat.

We wrote a guide about this spectacular day hike. Read Next: Seven Sisters Cliffs Walk.

Cornwall Road Trip - Top Experiences in England - England Travel Guide

Road Tripping around Cornwall

Forming the south-west tip of England, the county of Cornwall is defined by rugged cliff lines, darling fishing villages, and secret coves. As you explore this region, you might feel like you’re stepping into a historical film or high fantasy novel. It’s that bewitching. The best way to experience Cornwall is on a road trip.

  • A site that never gets old - medieval castles perched on rocks. This particular high and mighty castle is Riegersburg in South Styria, Austria.
  • Rätikon Alps.  This summer we hiked around this limestone range - possibly Austria‘s (and Switzerland’s) best kept secret.  You can read our detailed 5 day hiking itinerary (link in bio).
  • Coastal Hiking.  Until we hiked the Seven Sisters Cliffs, coastal hiking wasn’t something we ever considered. Shame on us.  Inspired by our experience in Southern England, we’ve been researching coastal hikes in Europe. And, we‘re currently planning a coastal trek for this November.  Have you hiked a multi-day coastal trail?
  • When we‘re hiking hut to hut, waking up for sunrise and seeing the sunset is a part of our daily routine. It‘s effortless. However, when we‘re staying in a hotel in the valley, catching the rising and setting sun can be tricky. Dinner often overlaps at the critical hour. And, unlike a mountain hut, it’s way more comfortable to sleep in.  Luckily at Hotel Rodella, watching the world turn shades of pink and red only required stepping outside. Perched above Selva in Val Gardena, the hotel garden is the perfect place to see mighty Sella and Langkofel put on a show.  Thank you @hotelrodella for our unforgettable stay!
  • One magical afternoon along the Alta Via 1 in the Italian Dolomites.  If you have any questions about trekking in the Dolomites, don’t hesitate to reach out.
  • We stayed in 25 mountain huts this summer. Though we‘d gladly return to many, there‘s one in particular that we‘d love to see again soon.  Built in 1879, Berliner Hütte is the oldest hut in the Zillertal Alps. It’s also the finest. With it‘s high wooden ceilings, chandeliers, and elegant staircase, this alpine refuge is one of a kind.  It could easily be the set of an early 20th-century period drama — like if Gran Hotel (best Spanish series ever!) was Austrian and located in the Alps.
