The leisure industry is very well organized in England and that means it’s easy to enjoy yourself! Many English people love a day-trip to the coast to stroll along beside the sea and eat fish and chips, watching the waves and perhaps have a ‘paddle’ too. Picnics, cinemas, the theatre and sports are all big here. Why not spend time at a cricket match? The rules are almost incomprehensible to outsiders but it is very English, as evidenced by the fact that after 5 days play with sometimes apparently very little action, there is absolutely no result whatsoever! You could also try antique-hunting at the Portobello Road Market (London) where there are over 1000 stalls, go hiking in the hills of the north or take a boat trip down the Thames or indeed be your own captain by hiring a boat for a few days on the Norfolk Broads (a large area of rivers and canals in eastern England). Many of these things won’t appear on typical tourist itineraries – and that’s why Withlocals’ London-based expertise is so important if you’re to see the REAL England.
