Big Ben. Now there’s a clock. And Stonehenge? We’re talking rocks. Big, impressive rocks. Then there’s Windsor Castle with its 1,000 rooms.

The Travelocity Roaming Gnome really wants to take you on your ultimate dream vacation – just enter the #iWannaGo contest for your chance to win the trip to England you’ve always envisioned!
England has more than castles, rocks and clocks. They’ve got the Lake District, beckoning to your hiking, climbing, outdoor soul. They’ve got Hadrian’s Wall, built by the Romans in the second century. They’ve got the Cotswolds, full of medieval stone structures, rolling hills and historic towns. And don’t forget the black cab, the red telephone box and blue Stilton cheese. They’ve also got Shakespeare, royals and football (David Beckham style), all rolled into one fabulous country. Cool sights like Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Trafalgar Square continue the centuries-long list of fabulous features.
The same culture that gave you the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Spice Girls, preceded them with the likes of Henry VIII, Oliver Cromwell and Charles Darwin. Along with double-decker buses, hearty pub food and the Wimbledon Tennis Tournament, the U.K. is also known for the English breakfast, one of the most delicious breakfasts on the planet. And then there’s high tea. Can you say Darjeeling with scones?
You’ll want to experience every last proper noun you’ve read about, and then some. If England isn’t your cup of Earl Grey tea, however, let us know what is! Tell the Roaming Gnome where you want to go and enter the #iWannaGo contest at www.travelocity.com/iwannago.
