Sustainable travel

When you consider that tourism depends on the environment and local communities for its long term survival, it’s no wonder responsible travel is growing in importance and popularity. Today we are increasingly aware of our impact on both our immediate environment and on places and communities further afield. If you are looking to reduce your impact on the environment, avoiding flying and taking a holiday in England is a very good start.

Here are a few more tips to help you have a green holiday.

Green transport
Travel to and around your destination the right way. There are many sustainable options for transport including rail, hybrid-engine buses, bikes and local green schemes.




Green accreditation schemes
VisitEngland works with a number of schemes so you can be confident the businesses you interact with on holiday are truly sustainable. Find out how.
