View from Castlehead, near Keswick, English Lake D...
From the Lake District and Northumberland in the North down to Cornwall in the South West, England has many fine cliffs, with arguably Derbyshire and Yorkshire hosting some of the finest climbing around, on rock type that can vary significantly in just a few miles. The weather in England, while still often damp, is generally better than other areas in the UK.
Flying to London will be the best option, from where you can easily travel to all the areas described.
