5. Explore Kew Gardens
Kew Gardens, also known as the Royal Botanic Gardens, are the perfect place for an afternoon wander. Look for the Treetop Walkway, which puts you high enough to glimpse the city skyline.
6. Tour Windsor Castle
Explore the home of the queen with a tour of Windsor Castle, a quick train ride from London. The cute town is also great for boat tours on the Thames and dining in historic pubs.
7. Go Punting
From London, head to Cambridge, where the River Cam is the perfect place to learn how to punt (which is basically guiding a small boat with a pole). Look for one of the many boat rental and tour companies around town.
8. Visit The Ashmolean Museum
Head to Oxford to peruse the Ashmolean Museum, England’s oldest public museum, which was established back in 1683.
9. Tour A Gin Distillery
The Brits love their gin, and you can learn more about the delicious spirit during a tour of the Bombay Sapphire distillery, located in Hampshire.
10. Dine At The Fat Duck
The small town of Bray is known for its collection of Michelin-starred restaurants, the most famous of which is Heston Blumenthal’s three-starred Fat Duck. Book early and save your pennies—this is a splurge.
