Let’s Go to England
London, Manchester, Birmingham
England...Why does this part of Britain attract tourists like a magnet, from all over the world, despite so many people having contradictory feelings about England? Some see it as a place where it never stops raining, the sky is always covered with clouds and the conservative English don't seem very friendly. Others imagine England as a place that now represents a mix of cultures and traditions from all over the world, with a modern lifestyle and architectural design and boasting the heritage of avant-garde and rebellious subcultures in the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Others have yet another view of England. They see it as a place where cultural bases and modern politics were formed and as the birthplace of the industrial revolution and a place that was always open to change, discovery and education.
