Places of Interest

Castles, cathedrals. battle and heritage sites. museums, mountains. Giant stones... the UK is filled with things to see and places to go, and every thirst - be that of the casual tourist, the historian, the sightseer, the lover of nature - can be quenched. 

There are hundreds of places of interest in the UK, and here are just a handpicked few. 


Skara Brae Neolithic Village - Orkney

In 1850, a storm disturbed the dunes on the main island of Orkney, and unveiled an amazingly well-preserved, prehistoric village. Visitors can explore the village - which dates back some 5000 years - and walk through the passageways and view the village's homes (many of which still contain pieces of original stone furniture). 


Stonehenge - England

Stonehenge - the massive, Neolithic monument that has become synonymous with British history - remains a great source of fascination for historians, as it was built before recorded history and it's original purpose/methods of construction all remain a fantastic mystery.



Warwick Castle - England

Built by William the Conqueror in 1068, Warwick Castle has since served as the home address to many powerful Earls of Warwick - many of whom met their maker in generally violent and horrific ways! Visitors can explore the castle and its grounds; immersing themselves in almost a thousand years of history.  


St Paul's Cathedral - England

Another must for history buffs, St Paul's Cathedral is a London icon - partly due to its infamous dome - and has been a religious site for nearly 1500 years. The cathedral is an extremely popular option for tourists in the capital, and there are always people standing outside the building, capturing its architectural brilliance with a camera. 


Giant's Causeway - Northern Ireland 

Giant's Causeway, which is Northern Ireland's first UNESCO Heritage Site, is aesthetically truly unique - around 40,000 basalt columns bound by a volcanic eruption which occurred a mere 60 million years ago. The National Trust offers guided tours, which take visitors around the site, as well as around the surrounding coast. 


Edinburgh Castle - Scotland 

Edinburgh Castle is a very historic fortress - people were living there in the Iron Age, some 1800 years ago. It was a place of regality from the thirteenth century to the seventeenth century, and due to its involvement in the Wars of Scottish Independence, Edinburgh Castle has the bespoke title of "Most Besieged Place in Great Britain". 




A pub stay is the ideal base when your sightseeing, delicious food and drink and comfortable bedrooms all under one roof there is nowhere better to stay.
