Hadrian's Wall

Hadrian’s Wall was built by the Romans to protect their colony of Britannia from the fierce tribes throughout Scotland. It stretches for 117 kilometres (73 miles) across the north of England, from the North Sea to the Irish Sea. Construction started in 122 AD following a visit by the Roman Emperor Hadrian, and was largely completed within six years. Only stretches of this famous wall are still visible today, although portions have been re-created as visitor's sites. A national path follows the whole length of the wall from Wallsend in the east, to Bowness-on-Solway in the west​.

Warwick Castle

Built on the site of a Norman fortification, Warwick Castle evolved over the centuries to eventually become one of the most recognizable examples of 14th century military architecture in Europe. In 2001, Warwick Castle was named one of Britain’s “Top 10 historic houses and monuments” and is one of the top attractions in the UK. 

Lake District - National Park

Located in northwest England in the county of Cumbria, the Lake District is the largest National Park in the UK. The main attraction is the lakes and 'fells,' from the Old Norse term for mountains and hills. The park is England’s premier destination for hiking and climbing, and is visited by about 14 million domestic and international tourists each year.

Tower of London

Now home to the British Crown Jewels, the Tower of London served as a prison from 1100 until the mid-twentieth century. An important part of England's history, the Tower of London is also reputedly the most haunted building in England. For centuries, there have been tales of ghosts inhabiting the tower, including the ghost of Anne Boleyn and the boy princes, Edward V and his brother Richard.​

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds is a range of gentle hills in south-central England. The main range reaches 330 meters (1083 feet) in altitude at its highest point. 

The region is known for its picturesque stone-built villages, historical towns, and stately homes and gardens. ​

Durham Cathedral

Durham Cathedral, in the city of Durham in northeast England, is the greatest Norman building in England, and perhaps even in Europe. It is cherished not only for its architecture but also for its incomparable setting. In a nationwide BBC poll held in 2001, Durham Cathedral was voted England’s most beloved building.​

York Minster

One of the largest Gothic cathedrals​ in northern Europe (alongside Cologne Cathedral in Germany), York Minster dominates the skyline of the ancient city of York. York Minster incorporates all the major stages of Gothic architectural development in England, and the present building was begun around 1230, finally reaching completion in 1472. The “Great East Window” inside the cathedral is the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world, and is a truly magnificent sight to behold.​

Windsor Castle

Located about an hour west of London, Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world. It is one of the official residences of Queen Elizabeth II, ​​who spends many weekends of the year at the castle, using it for both state and private entertaining. The earliest surviving buildings at Windsor date from the reign of Henry II who ascended to the throne in 1154. Much of the castle, including the magnificent State Apartments and St. George's Chapel, can be visited.

Big Ben

The 150 year old Big Ben is one of London’s top attractions. Officially named the Elizabeth Tower, the name Big Ben actually refers not to the clock tower itself, but to the 13 ton bell housed within the tower, and takes its name from the man who first ordered the bell, Sir Benjamin Hall. It is the 3rd largest free-standing clock tower in the world, and remains an iconic image of London.

Stonehenge

A top tourist attraction, and among the most important prehistoric sites in the world, Stonehenge has stood for over 5000 years .
Evidence indicate that the large stones were raised around 3100 BCE, and some of the stones were actually quarried over 200 miles away.​ It is not known for certain what purpose Stonehenge served, but many scholars believe the monument is ceremonial or religious.​​​​
