Tell them if they don't let you go you will stay living at home until you are 30.

I went to America on my own when i was 16 to visit a boyfriend I had who was travelling around for 3 months. My parents weren't happy about it, but I had never given them any reason not to trust me and I guess I was a very mature 16 year old as well, so they let me go under much worry. However now matter how old or mature you feel you're still not very old at that age and I don't think you should blame your parents for not letting you go.. after all, if something happened to you they would be the ones who had to feel guilty and responsible for the rest of their lifes. I know it's a tough one to swallow, but there's not that long till you turn 18 and nobody would feel bad or responsible then. England won't go anywhere. I think you should try your best to explain to them why you think they should let you go without begging them or going on at them, cause I don't think that'll help in the long run and they'll just get more stubborn about it. If they won't let you go, accept it and wait that one year more. The only reason why your parents say no is because they love you and care about you.
I hope it will sort itself.
Good luck!
