England is the ideal destination for people all around the world to travel and enjoy their holiday. People usually choose spring or summer as the best time to visit there. However, there are many reasons why you should try to come there in winter. You will definitely not regret your choice.
1. It is quieter in winter
It is widely acknowledged that if you travel to England at the other time of the year, you can experience hordes of tourists all over the place. In contrast, you may encounter fewer people, and streets and many attractions appear quieter in winter. Accordingly, you find it more comfortable to visit and enjoy famous landscapes and tourist attractions, and easier to take as many pictures as you want.
2. You can visit the seasonal markets
One of the most special features of visiting England in winter is that you are afforded opportunities to visit the end of year markets, which you are able to experience only at the end of the year. This is certainly the experience of a lifetime, particularly if you can visit some popular streets in Bath or Manchester, enjoying a range of activities, from traditional stalls to sprawling and colorful markets spreading throughout the city. Even other areas also have festival markets, and you can be immersed in both the traditional culture of Britain and exotic cultures from overseas.
3. You can find cheaper accommodation
Given that fewer tourists come to England in winter, it is obvious that hotels, hostels and other types of accommodation all drop their prices significantly at this time. You can enjoy many benefits when travelling in this season, not because there is no need to compete with other tourists for accommodation, but because it can offer you relief from the financial burden of the trip.
4. There’s a chance of snow
To people who wish to experience snow in England, it is undeniable that winter is the optimal choice, although it is never guaranteed. There is a chance that you can wake up to a flurry of snow in this time. The Lake District is the stunning place with idyllic settings where you can have a magnificent sight of snow and capture amazing pictures.
