Hello,

I'll spend 3 and a half months in England this coming july until mid of October. I will start from London and off to other places. I get to know that England has a lot of historic landmarks ( castles, cathedrals, churches, abbeys and stone circles and etc.)...i also prefer to stroll along the cottages or villages or farmland as i heard from my friends. Cotswold, Peak District, Lake District, Exmoor, Dartmoor, Yorkshire Dales, The Broads, Northumberland and North York Moors...

Glad to know any friends who can provide me some info on these places.
Thanks.

Lee

The Cotswolds are beautiful, there are some lovely little villages and towns around the Cotswolds. Be sure to visit a village called Bibury!!! There are also little market towns like Moreton in the Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold etc that are nice. Like anywhere, there are some great old pubs around as well. Dartmoor is nice, a bit more rugged than the Cotswolds. Peak District and Lake District are really nice parts of the country as well.

Thanks for your prompt reply. But i am wondering why the nothern moors are seldom the main attraction for tourists? Many travel books suggest the moorlands in North are captivating such as York Dales, North Yorkshire National Park and Northumberland? How about the New Forest and The Broads? Do you think i can make it for 3 and half month to explore the whole England? ( of course, not too detail)

Secondly, what are the restriction going into English pubs? with necktie or jacket? formal attire or t-shirts with collar? Please let me know.

Thirdly, will I have a chance to be chased by fiery dogs there because i am phobic to dogs!!!

And any possiblity of pocket-pickers up the moorlands?

Merci.

Regards,
Lee
