Heritage breaks in spring

In the garden of Anne Hathaway's Cottage in Stratford-upon-Avon

With heritage attractions that include awe-inspiring cathedrals, stately homes, Tudor towns and Roman ruins scattered across coast and countryside, England is one giant floating artefact. Why not while away the hours admiring the eccentric décor of a Jacobean stately home or head underneath an ancient cathedral to discover 2000 years of history before admiring ‘England’s Sistine Chapel’. Take to the seas aboard a grand battle ship or walk through a perfectly-preserved Tudor town, visiting the landmarks that shaped our greatest playwright.
