There are many English cities and towns you might want to visit, as well as London. It is very easy to travel around England by train, bus or coach, or by driving. Generally speaking there is good public transport between major places, although if you get out into the countryside then public transport is less good. All cities and most large towns have a train station, and almost all are served by the National Express or other bus networks.

Driving in London can be nerve-wracking, if you’re not used to big city driving, but outside London you could consider driving to any of the other English towns and cities. If you want to see several places then renting a car is probably the best bet, to get you out into the towns and villages that is the England most people want to see. But if you only want to see one or two places in particular, you might be better to take the train or the bus, or take a flight on one of the budget airlines.
According to several surveys of visitors by various tourist organisations, the following are some of the most popular English Cities and Towns for day trips from London, according to visitors to the city. The link takes you to our pages telling you the best way to get to each of them from London.
