Between May 30 and July 14, stadiums across England and Wales will crackle with the anticipation and excitement of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. Right from Lord’s in London to Old Trafford in Manchester, and Sophia Gardens in Cardiff, the grounds will host cricketers battling it out for the glinting golden globe. What better way to feel the fever than to cheer for the Men in Blue at a stadium roaring with fans? There’s also no better time to witness the layers of centuries that have shaped London, its architecture and eye-popping museums; than to see it with its game face on. Once you’ve had your fill of the capital, look beyond—the view from Birmingham’s canalside cafés is one to remember; floating in a hot-air balloon above a gorge in Bristol is a high not many cities afford. So pack your bags for the greatest show on Earth, and make room for travel around England and Wales when they’re shining the brightest.
