The land of pounds, pints and poms – England.  Forget the stereotypes and lap up all the treasures on offer – head to Stonehenge for a dose of the ancient, get along to a pub for an ale and a tasty dish of ‘toad in the hole’ or experience the madness of a football match in Manchester or Liverpool.  London alone will keep you busy – go and wave at the Queen, see the city from the heights of the London Eye or grab a curry down Brick Lane.  Cup o’ tea luv?
