Historical Places in United Kingdom

Top Places To Visit

Buckingham Palace is the residence of the Queen of England. No matter what time of the day you show up at the palace gates, it will be packed. Although the iron gates always stay bolted shut, a glimpse at the Queen's residence is enough to have you gaping. Plus, the change of guard is something worth checking out, though I'm not too sure of the exact time of day it happens.

Stonehenge is regarded as one of the greatest mysteries of mankind and is one of the most magnetically charged locations on the globe. No other place in history has ever generated as much mystery and speculation as these stones, the sheer size of which will have you in complete awe.

Next visit was to Edinburgh City which took me through the M8 which weaves thro fabulous countryside. The Edinburgh Castle was the best place to visit there.

Contrary to popular belief, Tower bridge is not London bridge. London bridge is an ordinary-looking bridge that was built in 1973, and is walking distance from borough market. Tower bridge on the other hand is located at Tower hill tube station and is painted in white, blue and red for Queen Elizabeth II's silver jubilee in 1977. And because it spans across the River thames, it's extremely windy and cold during winter (there's a Starbucks on the lower south side of the Thames if you need to grab your cuppa warm joe to bear the chills).

A stone's throw away, Westminster Abbey is also worth visiting for its gothic architecture.

This place is the heart of Central London. With all the street shows happening and people walking around and the souvenirs shops - every tourist in London must experience this place. Tip: best time to visit this place is post midnight because that's when this places is alive with the people partying and the pub crawls happening.

The Tower of London: One of the main resons why tourists flock this tower is to catch a glimpse of the legendary 317 Indian Diamond, The Kohinoor. Although visitors can explore the tower independently, It is a good idea to join one of the guided tours to

Clicking a picture with the royal guard at the Windsor castle who was oh so co operating to give that wide smile. Sitting in Nero's at Oxford Street the whole afternoon while sipping on coffee and reading a book and ending up chitchatting with Nancy for hours, who was sitting just beside and we got talking cuz she got curious enough to ask me whether Im a Jeffrey Archer fan or not. Eating at Nandos.

Get off at Canary Wharf and change over to the DLR. Hop off at Cutty Sark, climb out the station and you will be transported to a completely new place away from the buzz and crowds that define city of London. Here at Greenwich, you see quaint tea rooms, proper pubs and the vibe of a little seaside resort. Ideal as a day trip from London, it is amazing how 15 minutes on the DLR can bring you to a whole new place.

The castle grounds are spectacular and full of history. It houses some Medieval tunnels with cannons and firing points for the enemy, Great Tower, Wartime tunnels used in the World War II, the Underground hospital and St. Mary Church amongst many other attractions.

Rochester Castle surprised me, as it had the opposite atmosphere of Dover Castle. The touristy feeling one often gets visiting famous sites, was seemingly absent from Rochester Castle, except for a small gift shop. This made it love at first sight for this girl. It is easy to see why Charles Dickens preferred this English town above all others. The walk to the castle from the train station is full of history, and you will notice plaques on every other building hinting at their varied backgrounds. The fantastic thing about this castle is that it is, in fact, in ruins. There have been no fancy renovations recreating the rooms of the former occupants, there is no banquet hall to see (as the floor it once stood on is long gone) and there are not costumed characters walking the grounds. Yet, the ruins transport you. Without all the tourist distractions you are left to your own devices; imagination is allowed to take over.

If you want to shop till you drop in London then this is the place to be.Tip: Plan for a full day trip if you want to do some actual shopping or else just an hour or two should be sufficient for checking out this place.

Right after getting off at the station I went to the Royal Pavilion – which is a castle and was home to late King George IV. Nobody was allowed to take pictures inside the castle, but boy I can tell the king had fancy taste and a charming fetish for chinese culture. Such lavish and elaborate decors and architecture, I literally could feel myself wanting to live in the palace.

A walk through this city would help you get the best shots of your trip. More like an european city. With parks gardens all over.

Leeds Castle in not only about castle. It's very rich in flora and fauna plus number of other attractions are also there. Falconry Display, Maze Runner, Dark Sky Agin Court are just a few. I particularly liked Falconry display as they explained different species of birds in an very interesting manner. Last but not the least, you will meet Black Swans.Yes this castle is famous for Black Swams (Yes they are in the logo of Leeds Castle itself). Black Swans are endangered species but here you can see them easily and closely. So Leeds Castle is all about royalty, greenery, flora, fauna and lot of peaceful fun. I recommend everyone to take a day trip to the loveliest castle in the world.

Non-Shakespeare things: Hmmm, well. There are a couple of other things to do here, such as visiting the MAD Museum, Magic Alley, the Tudor Museum or the Butterfly Farm.... at night, you can also check out Ghost Tours for around £6. However, for the budget traveller, the main thing I'd suggest is taking some nice walks.

I especially loved touring Kew Palace, the smallest of the British Royal Palaces, that while not grandiose has been lovingly restored with period draperies, furniture, and portraits of it’s former occupants. There have been three palaces at Kew over the centuries, but Kew Palace is the only one that remains. The palace was built in 1735, and was referred to as the “Dutch House” for many years. I should also mention that the staff, dressed in period costumes, are absolutely terrific and are well-versed in the history of both the palace and it’s gardens.

I have been to the park 3 times till now but I never made it to very far. This winter though I finally managed to get farther than before - we went up to Kenwood House, an old English country house which houses a lot of great paintings - the highlight of which was a Rembrandt!! I think there is still some more to explore, maybe next summer...

Next we went to St Georges Chapel which is also on the castle grounds. Its beautiful with Gothic architecture. All the knights are assigned a stall in the chapel choir above which his or her heraldic devices are displayed. After death, the stall plates, however, are not removed; they remain permanently affixed, so the stalls of the chapel are filled with a colorful record of the members throughout history.
