    I was asked this very question this year by an American that was sat next to me on a flight from New York to Nashville! He wanted to know where I would recommend him to visit if he was going to visit he UK (hypothetically). After some discussion, I decided (in order):

    1) Stratford-on-Avon, Warwickshire

    2) Lichfield, Staffordshire

    3) Wales

    He liked country areas and said that if you liked more "city" areas and nightlife etc, then obviously you may want to go o places that are more livelier (although there's still plenty of nightlife in the first two examples I gave)

    Other places I would recommend:

    Lake District

    Peak District

    Derbyshire (hilly areas and the towns)

    Birmingham City centre (lots of shops, galleries, museum and other places of interest during the day and night)

    Cornwall - very picturesque

  • Durham and York are very nice. You can get a feel for the history and culture without it being too overcrowded and busy, as is sometimes the case in larger cities.

    Northumberland is vastly underrated considering how beautiful the countryside is. You could go to a different place there every day for a year and there would still be a lot to see. Thrunton woods, Simonside, Rothbury, Alnwick, kielder forest, the cheviots, catcleugh reservoir, Morpeth, Amble, the islands.

    There are so many nice places to visit in England that it would be impossible to list them all - these are just the ones that I'm very familiar with.

    Bath and Bristol are just a few miles apart

    Lovely countryside in places like Dartmoor, The New Forrest, The Lake District

    Oxford is nice to walk around

    Cornish fishing villages like St Ives

    Guess it depends on what you are looking for... castles or landscape, architecture or activities, places to stay or just stop and take a photo.

    England is different and packed with history. we've roads and cities outfitted by using the Romans cities which includes bath and York. previous York, the place manhattan gained that's call. each county is different and it relies upon what you're searching for. Then there is the Lake District it particularly is packed with mountains and tranquil lakes. There are tiny villages scattered throughout the rustic that are 1000's of years previous. study the English vacationer Board website to get extra techniques of what you're able to prefer to make certain and the place you're able to prefer to bypass.

    @TSK: Maybe he/she only wants to go to England. Stop being so menstrual. Not every question on here is a personal affront.
