You will never get tired of things to do and see in the UK. There is something for everyone, from historical attractions in London to the natural beauty of the Lake District. Here are our top tourist attractions that are well worth a visit.
Tower Of London
One of the world’s most famous fortresses and home to the Crown Jewels, the Tower of London is by far one of England’s most popular tourist attractions. Built nearly 1,000 years ago, there are lots of fascinating things to be learnt inside its walls. Widely considered the most important building in England, there’s enough to see and do at this World Heritage Site to keep visitors busy for hours.
St. Paul’s Cathedral
One of London’s most recognisable sights, this iconic cathedral has witnessed many significant events in Britain’s history, including the state funeral of Winston Churchill and the marriage of Prince Charles and Princess Diana.
The Lake District
The Lake District National Park is a must visit destination for all teachers moving to the UK! With 12 of the country’s largest lakes, it really is one of the most picturesque places in the country. If you’re a keen walker, Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England and is a great adventure for those of you who love the outdoors.
One of Britain’s most famous sightseeing spots, believed to date from as far back as 3000BC, historians are still baffled by how the huge slabs of Stonehenge were transported. Weighing up to 50 tonnes each, it would have taken 600 men to move just one!
Bath is a beautiful city that is well worth a visit. There’s so much to do so ensure you have a day or two to pack everything in. Bath is most famous for the incredible 2,000-year-old Roman Baths built around the city’s hot springs. Swimming is prohibited, however there’s plenty to see and do. The city of Bath itself has been granted world heritage status due to more than 500 of the city’s buildings being of historical or architectural importance.
