It is quite easy to get from place to place in England (if you ignore the chaos that can occur during peak hours around the major cities). Cheap airlines can fly you within England as well as other countries of the United Kingdom without any major expenditure. Bus (Bus operating long-haul routes called coach) and trains are also effective vehicles and covers most of the country. It pays to inquire about special discounts and travel passes. In London, there is also a well developed metro system. Driving a car is a great way to explore the country (note that there are large parking difficulties in the cities), but remember that England practice left driving, which can be a challenge to get used to.
