Hi Victoria,
It would depend on whether you've been to England before, whether you've already seen London, and how much time you have. But top of mind would be Cambridge or Oxford (probably not both, they're very similar!), plus Bath and a couple of the Cotswold villages. These places all feel very English, have incredible history and can be explored fairly easily on foot. The downside is that they can all get pretty busy with visitors.
All the best, Pauline(less)

Hi B.B., I was born in Cambridge, lived in Aberdeen as a kid, then was working in London before moving to California. Parents still live in Cambridge so I get back fairly often.
