England is an amalgamation of ancient megaliths and modern domes. A perfect country for enjoyment and adventure, England offers a wide variety of activities to the tourists.

The summers that span from July to August are hot and dry. From March to May, frequent showers alternate with a few sunny spells. The best time to visit England is April - September.
Presence of human life in England can be dated back to 700,000 years. This fact is reiterated by the discovery of the stone tools that belong to that era. History of England is not complete without the mention of Romans who occupied the Southern England in 50 AD. However their rule came to an end in 410 AD. This laid foundation for the emergence of new England that evolved through centuries and currently England preserves royal monarchy.
