How Can I Help?

Welcome to An English Collection, a hand-picked group of eclectic ‘must see’ places to visit in England. Having worked with travel trade and press worldwide for many years, here are a number of popular world class attractions to inspire your travellers and readers.

Be inspired by a visit to the hugely popular JORVIK Viking Centre, located within the walls of the medieval city of York. Explore the history of the Viking village discovered on the site of the attraction. The city of York has many attractions to offer visitors plus tearooms, excellent shopping opportunities, boat trips and ghost walks!

Let this iconic English brand of ceramics inspire you at World of Wedgwood. The attraction offers an award winning museum, a fascinating factory tour – watch painting of the beautiful ceramics with the possibility of throwing a pot as part of the tour!  Enjoy afternoon tea or make a special purchase as a memento, which can be shipped home too!

Discover the amazing Houses of Parliament, located in Westminster in the heart of London, on the banks of the River Thames. Visitors can enjoy a variety of tours and explore a combination of 1,000 years of history, contemporary political activity, as well as stunning art and architecture.

The Charles Dickens Museum is in Bloomsbury, London, in the heart of the city and is a ‘must see ‘during a visit to the capital. Visit this great literary author’s home, an elegant town house where he wrote Oliver Twist and Nicholas Nickleby.

The Great Exhibition of the North 2018 will be held in Newcastle and Gateshead during three summer months of 2018. It will be a celebration of innovation, design and creativity exporting life-changing ideas and products from the north of England to the world.

The magnificent Bamburgh Castle sits high and proud on a cliff above the white beaches of the Northumberland coast, very inspiring. The fourteen state rooms are amazing, just waiting to be explored and the castle is open all year.
