England is justifiably world famous for its majestic buildings and history dating back thousands of years. Throughout its long history, it's been a green and pleasant land, a sceptred isle and a nation of shopkeepers. It's stood as a beacon of democracy and a bastion of ideological freedom. Magna Carta, the King James Bible and the welfare state were all dreamt up here. To many it's the most eccentric, extraordinary and downright incomprehensible place on earth. Welcome to England!
