About the Country


With a momentous history spanning thousands of years and a long-established role as one of the world’s most influential nations, studying abroad in England provides an unparalleled learning environment. You’ll never run out of exciting sites to see here. From prehistoric Stonehenge to the two-thousand year old Hadrian’s Wall, once the northernmost border of the Roman Empire, this small island nation contains enough surviving relics of the past to keep you intrigued throughout your stay. Marvel at the 1400-year-old Canterbury Cathedral, the heart of the Church of England and an icon of Gothic architecture. Tour the astonishingly beautiful Roman Baths, built nearly two millennia ago in the city of Bath. Stop in William Shakespeare’s hometown, Stratford-upon-Avon, to see the preserved houses where he and some of his family members are thought to have once occupied. Visit Oxford University, the oldest English-speaking university in the world, in its namesake city of Oxford. Pay your respects to England’s monarchs and other famous figures at their iconic final resting place, Westminster Abbey. Stand below the towering skeletons of dinosaurs at the Natural History Museum. Need some quality time with nature? See how many species of seabirds you can spot at the sweeping Bempton Cliffs or spend a whole day wandering the beautiful Lake District National Park, where rugged mountains, tranquil lakes, and miles of green hills make for an idyllic getaway. For aspiring environmentalists, the Eden Project in Cornwall is a must-see attraction: the eco-park features the largest indoor rainforest in the world, along with several other habitats housed in their own biomes. If you’re lucky enough to study abroad in England during the spring or summer, have yourself a beach day at Brighton Palace Pier, an impressive example of Edwardian architecture situated on the island’s southern coast. Spend a day in the Cotswolds where you can admire over fifteen thousand tree species in the gorgeous Westonbirt Arboretum or stroll through the immaculately kept Royal Gardens at Highgrove. For a more active outdoor excursion, head to How Stean Gorge to hike, canoe, or repel down the Cautley Spout waterfall.
