Taking a gap year is so popular these days and with the internet it’s become ridiculously easy to plan a gap year pretty much anywhere in the world.
So why should you choose England for your gap year?
England has a fascinating history that stretches back well over 1000 years. Almost everywhere you go will have an interesting historical perspective even if you may not realise it.
Don’t miss seeing iconic landmarks like Stonehenge and York Minster, one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe.
Being based in England gives you ridiculously easy access to the rest of Europe. Weekend breaks on the continent are just a short and cheap plane ride away!
Being a small country, England has the best of both worlds. You can live in the city but within an hour or so drive you can be in the middle of the most glorious green countryside.
If pub crawls are your thing, nothing can beat a proper English pub crawl. And with awesome names like the Cat and Custard Pot (Kent), the Hung Drawn & Quartered (London) and The Bucket of Blood (Cornwall), who can resist! You may even spot a ghost or two along the way!
If you’re planning on staying for a while, there are many short courses to choose from as England caters well for overseas students. This can help you to further your education while still enjoying a year out.
As a country that attracts tourists and workers from around the globe, you’ll no doubt make many friends of all nationalities during your time in England. And with friends all over the world, travelling is all the more fun!
