Jersey travel guide

Specialty Museums · Castles · Zoos

Walking and cycling are popular outdoor activities on the island’s tranquil roads and rustic trails. With a rich heritage and a strong spirit of independence, the island boasts numerous local museums and historical sites. High earnings, zero inheritance taxes, and a mild climate make Jersey a popular offshore finance center, with tourism, banking, and dairy providing a healthy backbone for the robust local economy.

Cumbria travel guide

4.2
Specialty Museums · Bodies of Water · Castles
Most people speed through Cumbria in a mad rush to get to the region’s most popular tourist attractions, the Lake District National Park and Hadrian’s Wall. Despite this unfortunate oversight, for centuries this county of outstanding natural beauty, bustling market towns, and picturesque villages has inspired musicians and writers, including William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. Much of Cumbria is mountainous, and it notably contains Scafell Pike, England’s highest point. The region’s history was long characterized by invasions, mass migrations, and repeated bloody land disputes between the English and Scottish. Today, Cumbria stands poised to be invaded by tourists, but for the moment visitors here can enjoy quiet tours of the unspoiled land, dramatic mountain walks, sparkling lakes, and scenic hillside trails.
