I believe that all of us had on our bucket
list to visit England. They are one of the most famous tourist centres in the
world. But besides football, fish n’ chips and the red phone cabins, what are
those great things that make us love England?

Their culture, history, art, architecture, and
tourist attractions are something remarkable and unique. Being in England can’t
be compared to anything in this world. Each building and painting has its
history. And not just the physical things, but the British humour, the people’s
passion for the royal family, makes that place even more special. In this
article, we will elaborate on some of the most remarkable things in England. So
next time when you’re visiting the place you will know what to look for.

Art

Let’s go back in time a bit, and we will see that England’s art was among the best. And not just they were one of the most wanted artists, but they also made an influence on the art. During the 20th-century British painters made a significant impact in changing the course of painting’s history. The British artists were the first to start painting experiences and visions, which were pretty rare in those days. Some of the most important innovations were the way they portrayed the human body and the redefinition of the space.

Knowing all these facts, it’s no wonder that
England has that many museums. Some of the most famous ones can be found in
England. But they are present in contemporary art as well. Just think about
Banksy, who reformed street art and sent powerful messages with his graffiti.

TV and Film

England has some pretty famous pieces of art
in literature, and now England’s TV and film industry is also rising. Have you
know that the BBC is the world’s oldest national broadcasting organisation, not
to mention that it has some of the most amazing dramas and original shows
worldwide and well worth a watch. There are very few series fans that haven’t
heard about shows likeThe White Queen, Downton Abbey, Killing Eve, The Office, etc.

Chinatown

At the East End of London, during the start of
the twentieth century, numerous Chinese foreigners ran to London and set about
making organisations as an approach to take into account the crowds of Chinese
mariners who frequented the docklands territory.

All things considered, because of the World
War II Blitz, an enormous inflow of workers from Hong Kong, and development in
prominence of Chinese cooking, numerous Chinese cafés opened somewhere else.
Today, that territory of England is one of the most-visited parts, where the
best Chinese cooking styles can be discovered merely off Shaftesbury Avenue.

Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum

Madame Tussaud’s is a well-known waxworks
exhibition hall made by the wax sculptress Marie Tussaud. The primary Madame Tussaud‘s exhibition hall, which opened
in 1884, is situated on Allsop Street, Marleybone, London, however, there is
presently an assortment of different branches inside various urban areas around
the world.

The historical centre hosts similar figures,
including regal individuals, film stars, sports stars, models, and notorious
killers. A large segment of the cellar, known as The Chamber of Horrors,
highlights recorded characters from the French Revolution, for example,
Robespierre, Marat, King Louis XVI, and Marie Antoinette, every one of whom
were displayed by Ms Tussaud herself upon their passing or execution.

Special vehicles

When you think about England, the first thing
you see before you are the double-decker red buses. If you ever go to England,
you should go on a bus like that. Also, we have to mention England’s special
taxies that became so popular that are one of England’s brand marks. Those
vehicles can be found in a miniature version in every souvenir shop, or you can
also find them as nanoblock toys.

Historic Buildings

England’s houses and buildings are some of the
most beautiful places in the world. Those extravagant buildings are part of the
English national identity, along with the Royal Family, the industrial
revolution, and the famed ‘cup of tea’. Besides the attractive design, those
buildings represent traditional values, history, and much more.

With a long history of monarchy, wars, and
periods of enormous development, England has got a large variety of buildings.
Just to name a few, there is the: All Saints, Manchester Liverpool Road Railway
Station, St George’s Hall, Palace of Westminster, Rievaulx Abbey, Buckingham
Palace. So next time you visit England and see one of these places make sure to
read about their history. You will appreciate the building even more.

The Royal Family

England still belongs to those few countries
that still have a monarchy. And no soul on earth hasn’t heard about the Queen
of England. We all love her, and if you’re visiting England, you can see her
face on every single corner in a boutique shop, so there is no England without
the Royal Family.  However, the country
is controlled by the prime minister, and parliament, so the royal family
doesn’t have as much authority as they had back in the days.

Food and Drink

As you saw in the previous paragraphs, Britain
is a multicultural nation. And this can also be tasted. England has a wide
variety of restaurants which implies a wide range of cooking styles here going
from Italian, Indian, and Chinese to Thai and Caribbean. But the English
gastronomy is also something remarkable. Nobody can make fish n’ chips like the
British people, and the atmosphere in an English pub is something phenomenal.
So between two programs make sure to try out some of these places.
