"In England" or "to England"?

The meaning here is spending some time in a country, or a place.

In English 'I have been in England', at least in the UK has no meaning apart from going to the toilet in England, which is why we'd say 'I have been to England'

Whereas in Welsh to say I went to a place, eg 'Es i i Loegr' (I went to England) is just a comment on the journey rather than staying in the country.
