England Travel Guide

My (Sabrina’s) mother is an Anglophile. While my classmates were watching Friends, Sex in the City, Dawson’s Creek, etc… My mom and I were watching Agatha Christie’s Poirot, Keeping up Appearances, Midsomer Murders, and every British period drama ever made. So, I didn’t understand pop culture references for a good decade. While my friends ate after school snacks, I savored afternoon tea. Earl grey always. I traveled to England with my parents twice when I was in elementary school. But, alas, all I can remember is a wildlife park and our particularly cozy B&B in the Cotswolds. Fast forward 20+ years, and I finally returned to England. I’m a bit predisposed to liking England (thanks Mom), but I wasn’t prepared to fall in love with England. And, that I did. Kati and I spent a few weeks in Southern England, exploring Brighton and the South Downs. And, then we took a most marvelous road trip through Cornwall. My life changed. Now, I’m plotting our return.

The English are not a very spiritual people, so they invented cricket to give them some idea of eternity.

Seven Sisters Cliffs Walk, East Sussex, England

Walking from Seaford to Eastbourne: Seven Sisters Cliffs Hike

The Seven Sisters are a series of chalk cliffs stretching from Cuckmere Haven to Birling Gap in East Sussex, England. These white cliffs along the English Channel are one of Southern England’s most striking landscapes. The best way to experience the Seven Sisters cliffs is by walking the coastal trail from Seaford to Eastbourne. The 21.9 km (13.6 miles) Seven Sisters walk is rather easy, though not flat.

Cornwall, England

Road Tripping around Cornwall

Forming the south-west tip of England, the county of Cornwall is defined by rugged cliff lines, darling fishing villages, and secret coves.

  • Iconic Hike and Viewpoint in the Faroe Islands 🇫🇴 

The Kallur Lighthouse (also called the Kalsoy Lighthouse) stands on the northernmost promontory of Kalsoy Island. It’s a small structure set amid untamed landscapes, both majestic and austere.

On a fair-weather day, the out-and-back hike from Trøllanes village to Kallur Lighthouse is short and straightforward. It only takes 35-45 minutes one-way.

  • Must-Do Hike in the Faroe Islands 🇫🇴

Saksun and Tjørnuvík are two picturesque villages in the north of Streymoy Island. These remote settlements are connected by an old village path. 

The Saksun to Tjørnuvík village path trail begins with bird’s-eye views of the Pollurin tidal lagoon, a circular body of water almost entirely enclosed by cliff walls. 

It continues through high valleys, completely untouched save for the occasional cairn. The trail ends with a dramatic descent into Tjørnuvík village.

This 13 km out-and-back hike takes 5:30 hours.

  • Secret Hike in the Faroe Islands 🇫🇴 

The Árnafjørður – Toftaskarð – Katlarnir circuit trail is an adventurous hike on Borðoy Island in the Faroe Islands. Starting in the village of Árnafjørður, the trail leads northeast to Svartidalur valley and then climbs up steep crags to Toftaskarð pass.

The trail continues west and eventually drops down a steep mountainside via Uppi á Gjógv pass. Next, the trail heads to Katlarnir, the historic gathering place for the ancient Thing of the Northern Isles. From here, the trail continues southwest and loops back down to Árnafjørður. 

Infrequent waymarking along the ascent makes this a more challenging route. Research this trail thoroughly before setting off and download the GPX files from whatson.fo.

  • Viðareiði, Viðoy Island 🇫🇴 

Viðareiði is the northernmost village in the Faroe Islands. The main reason to venture up here is to hike Villingardalsfjall. 

There’s very little tourist infrastructure on Viðoy Island. So, we recommend basing yourself in Klaksvík on the island of Borðoy, when exploring the Northern Isles.
