England is a great place to visit, no matter if you are heading for London, Liverpool, Manchester or to the country side. The fact that England is quite pricey doesn’t seem to stop tourists who flock here to explore the cities and the country’s incredible sites.
Need to know
Generally speaking, the season determines the price you’ll be paying for a room. The high season is in summer when everything is more expensive and generally rooms book up pretty quickly.
If you don’t mind the spring or autumn – or better said if you don’t mind the rain – you can visit England during the shoulder seasons. The weather is unreliable but it’s warm and the prices will be lower. Plus you’ll be avoiding the hoards of tourists.
There are plenty of hotels in England, ranging from deluxe five star ones to cheaper one star (or not rated) smaller hotels tucked away on some back-end alley. It won’t be a problem where you stay though as the big cities have incredible public transport system which makes it really easy to travel from one place to another.
If you book your room in advance there will be quite some discounts offered by different online booking systems. So although a room can look very expensive at first sight, booking in advance and via an online booking system can save you up to 30% even during the high season.
