East Midlands is one of nine official regions of England. If you’ve visited the Rockingham Castle, Burghley House, Belvoir Castle, Deene Park and Grimsthorpe Castle, it may be time to bid the East Midlands farewell and fly somewhere else!
Serving all the East Midland counties, arriving at the East Midlands Airport is accessible via cars, railways and buses. Taking a taxi or a bus (Skylink) would be the best options that directly connect you to the airport from various locations. The main attraction of East Midland Airport would be its volunteer run Aeropark, both an aviation museum and a viewing area, allowing enthusiasts to learn about aeronautical technology and also watch the modern jets of today landing and taking off. Picnic tables are located throughout the Aeropark where you can sit and enjoy the sights and sounds of a thriving regional airport with aircraft almost flying right above your head.
Where to go
Fly domestically around England to experience the vastness of land and differences in culture across the country. Fly first to London, the capital of England and also the United Kingdom where you can stroll along the world-famous River Thames with the London Eye, Palace of Westminster and the Big Ben Clock Tower standing gloriously alongside. Pose in one of the iconic red phone booths in London to feel transported back in time.
Why not visit Liverpool, home to Liverpool and Everton Football Club where sports geeks could try to catch a match or two. Famous places in Liverpool include Albert Dock, Maritime Mercantile City and St George's Hall, all famous landmarks that cannot be missed! If city life bores you, fly to Shanklin, an island off the southern coast of England. Its sandy beach, Old Village and a wooded ravine, Shanklin Chine, are its main attractions -- sip on wine while having fresh seafood served to you in your resort and watch your worries slip away into the ocean!
If you think you have had enough of England, take a short hour-long flight out of the East Midlands to Edinburgh in Scotland. Edinburgh is rich in history and has many historic buildings, including Edinburgh Castle, Holyrood Palace, the churches of St. Giles, Greyfriars, the Canongate, and an extensive Georgian New Town built in the 18th century. The city has also been known as a centre of education, in the fields of medicine, the sciences and engineering.
Fly to Montreal across the North Atlantic Ocean, a UNESCO City of Design, whose French influence is so strong you might mistake yourself to be in France! Many historic buildings in Old Montreal still retain their original form: Notre-Dame de Montréal Basilica, Bonsecours Market, and the impressive 19th century headquarters of all major Canadian banks on St. James Street.
Otherwise, fly to Paris on one of the 4 weekly direct flights, where the romantic Eiffel Tower and grand Louvre Museum will take your breath away. Also enjoy looking at the Parisian way of life from an open-concept cafe with a baguette and café au lait in hand.
