England is a country in the United Kingdom. The capital city is London. Hitchhiking can be quite hard; it is not the easiest country of the Kingdom. Especially in the (richer) South, where people tend to be "posher" and more individualistic, there is sometimes little understanding on why you don't just take a train or "get a job".

For more general information about hitchhiking within England, check out the United Kingdom article. For specific cities in England, have a look below.

Hitchhiking to/from England

The UK being an island, you will need to cross the English Channel, which is quite possible as a hitchhiker, and can be done as a free car passenger on one of the ferries or by the Channel Tunnel between Dover, England and Calais or Dunkerque, France.

It's possible to hitchhike several ferry lines going to England. Just hitchhike a car or a truck that's going to the ferry and you pay nothing because the car is already paid for.

More information on the English channel page.
