Lonely Planet ranks England second best destination in 2020

Published on : Wednesday, October 23, 2019

The guide book firm, Lonely Planet, has named England as the world’s second best tourist destination in 2020 behind Bhutan.

 

The list, featured in the Best in Travel 2020 book, was compiled based on “topicality, unique experiences and wow factor”.

 

Lonely Planet noted that new sections of the England Coast Path are continuing to open, making it easier for people to explore the country’s coastline.

 

Once complete, it will be one of the world’s longest continuous walking trails at nearly 3,000 miles.

 

The entry for England states: “Brexit uncertainties have dominated the headlines in recent years but one constant amid all the confusion has been the timeless treasures that England is famous for: the historic castles and cathedrals, the quaint villages and rolling countryside, and of course, the seaside.

 

“Taking a bracing walk on a windswept pier, eating delicious fish and chips, searching for marine life in rock pools, finding fossils in ancient cliffs, building sandcastles and dolphin-spotting on picturesque beaches are just some of the activities offered by the English seaside.”

 

Number-one ranked Bhutan, in the Himalayas, plans to become the first fully organic nation by 2020.

 

Other countries in Lonely Planet’s top five were North Macedonia, the Caribbean island of Aruba and Africa’s eSwatini (formerly Swaziland).
