England

What is England about? There are so many things that come to mind, but the first ones that we can think of are history, tradition, royalty, red (and blue!) phone boxes, afternoon tea, scones, biscuits, fries that are called chips, chips that are called crisps, ginger princes, West End theatre, doubledeckers, lovely accents, Harry Potter, Sherlock Holmes, James Bond… oh, and now we’ve wandered off to film tourism again. But that’s what we’re about, so let’s run with it.

England to us is not only one of the most interesting, diverse travel destinations in the world. It’s also the home for hundreds of TV shows and movies, and a long list to favorite actors and actresses. If you’ve watched at least a little bit of television growing up in Finland and then make your first London trip, you’ll instantly feel like on the telly (another very British word).
