Looking for some staycation ideas? Visit England are encouraging people to share their experiences on Facebook to create the ultimate list of 101 Things to Do Before You Go Abroad.
A snazzy interactive map on Visit England's Facebook page enables visitors to recommend some of their favourite experiences, hidden gems and unmissable sites that England has to offer.
Whether it's discovering some of the country's most beautiful coastal scenery or national parks, lakes and mountains, or taking tours of Bristol, Bath, London or Liverpool searching out amazing historic architecture, sculpture or street art, you'll find something that tickles your fancy on the final list.
In the meantime, why not contribute to the map and get some top staycation ideas while you're there - Visit England are running a competition to win a boating holiday for 4 on the beautiful Norfolk Broads (pictured below) as well as a host of other prizes for the best suggestions.
The competition is open for entries until March 1.
