Practically every village in Leicestershire boasts at least one iconic fish-and-chips shop. Though it has a rich industrial heritage, this area self-deprecatingly plays down its own attractions, causing it to remain less frequented by tourists than most of the rest of the country. The county comes alive on the weekends, when the locals pack the village pubs to enjoy singing, dancing, and a variety of games. The countryside is dotted with impressive historical remains, including Elizabethan castles and Roman ruins. The county’s biggest town, Leicester, offers a taste of Indian culture and cuisine, featuring several Hindu temples and curry houses.

Despite being the second-largest county in the country, Lincolnshire is relatively sparsely populated and predominantly agricultural. Filmmakers from around the globe find inspiration in the region’s well-preserved stately homes and ancient stone-built towns, which appear to have been frozen at their most picturesque moment. Passing travelers are mostly drawn to the charming city of Lincoln, an old cathedral town offering not only several historical attractions, but also numerous modern shopping, cultural, and entertainment options. To escape throngs of tourists and enjoy an authentic Lincolnshire vacation, focus your itinerary on the region’s secluded country corners, quiet seaside resorts, and unspoiled nature reserves.

Less touristed than its neighbor and friendly rival Yorkshire, the county of Lancashire is often remembered as one of the focal points of the Industrial Revolution. Despite its industrial heritage and heavy urbanization, this region offers numerous vacation ideas, not the least of which is the sweeping countryside dotted with thriving towns and quaint villages. Though this region contains Blackpool, long considered one of the country’s prime seaside resorts, many travelers avoid holidays in the bustling urban centers and head for the region’s largely unspoiled and secluded rural areas. Lancashire’s hidden gem is the Forest of Bowland, internationally renowned for its heather moorland, blanket bog, and rare birds.
