English Tourism Week returns between 15th and 24th March, making it the perfect opportunity to celebrate England’s heritage.

English Tourism Week is an annual celebration of the tourism industry across England and aims to highlight the importance and contribution that the tourism industry makes to England’s economy.

Whether you’re a fan of ancient history and want to uncover Roman ruins or Iron Age Hill Forts or are interested in the more modern parts of UK culture, like following the Beatles’ lives by visiting their old haunts in Liverpool, there are plenty of opportunities for exploring the nation’s history and heritage.

Fancy visiting a castle or two and discovering William the Conqueror’s insatiable building plans for England? Or finding out about the families that called these huge buildings home? Or perhaps you want to find a ghost or two? Find castles to explore here. 

Want to see how the other half live or pretend you’re a Bridgerton for the day? Visit one of England’s heritage houses and country estates. Many of these properties are now owned by the National Trust or English Heritage but some are still privately owned and are lived in to this day!

Find a host of them to explore here.

Perhaps you want to learn more about England’s changing attitudes to religion? You’ll find the remains of monasteries destroyed during Henry VIII’s dissolution, beautiful Cathedrals and Abbeys, mosques and synagogues, some from before England expelled the Jews in 1290. Find a host of religious buildings and monuments here.

That’s not all you can discover during English Tourism Week. There are heritage tours, walks and more covering everything from the Romans to the fashion of the 1960, museums dedicated to just about everything you can think of and Blue Plaques galore to help you learn more about the incredible people who have made England what it is today.

English Tourism Week, which is organised by Visit Britain and Visit England takes place every year and aims to highlight the importance, value and vast contribution that the tourism industry makes to England’s (and the wider UK’s) economy. So, make sure to discover England’s history this English Tourism Week, 15th – 24th March.
