We may not be able to internationally travel at the moment, but that doesn't mean you can't explore some of the UK's biggest attractions! Many of the biggest tourist hotspots across the country and they offer the perfect distraction during lockdown.
Here's a few of our favourites...
Houses of Parliament
The official title of the Houses of Parliament is the New Palace of Westminster. The building is colour coded – gold in the parts used by the Monarch, red for the Lords and green for the Commons.
The Roman Baths
Moving away from the capital for a moment, we head to Bath for an incredible look at the city's most famous attraction...the Roman Baths. Steeped in history,
Fans of the fantastic TV show, The Secret Life of the Zoo, Chester was the first zoo in the UK to successfully breed Asian elephants in captivity. The most famous of these was Jubilee (1977–2003), so named as he was born in 1977, the year of the Queen's Silver Jubilee.
For those with a more thespian outlook, Shakespeare's Globe on London's South Bank may be more up your street. This beautiful circular, 16th century playhouse oozes character and charm...even when viewed online.
Tower of London
Possibly one of the most famous of London's many amazing attractions, The Tower of London is always packed to the gunnels with tourists from near and far. Fancy taking a more sedate look around the Crown Jewels? Now's your chance.
The Lake District National Park covers an astonishing 912 square miles of beautiful British landscape and has 10 mountains above 2,900 feet within its borders, so it's little wonder we flock there in droves all year round.
Or if you are looking for something local, Highgate Cemetery is perhaps the most famous of London's 'magnificent seven' burial grounds. Following its Victorian heyday, it fell into ruin during the early 20th Century.
