London Eye (London)

Touted as the tallest Ferris wheel in Europe, the London Eye attracts around 3.5 million visitors each year. Aside from allowing you to enjoy riding a fully air-conditioned Ferris wheel, London Eye also lets you get an astonishing view of the city.

Tower of London (London)

Serves as Her Majesty's Royal Palace that features several buildings within the two rings of defensive walls. It has been used as a treasury and an armory. Visitors can view the Crown Jewels here.

Tower Bridge (London)

Just like Big Ben, Tower Bridge has been a must-see site for all those planning to visit London. Located right next to the Tower of London, the Tower Bridge also provides a nice view over the River Thames.

Leeds Castle (Kent)

Built on islands on a lake that formed by the River Len, the Leeds Castle is a popular tourist attraction in the UK. Get and enjoy the feeling of the knight dating back to the 12th century.

Hadrian's Wall (Cumbria)

Yes, it is literally a wall, but for a cause. Built by Emperor Hadrian, the wall was part of a defensive fortification in Roman Britain. Though it is a wall, it's also a very place for tourists in north England.

The Eden Project (Cornwall)

An indoor rainforest that covers around 10 hectares of greeneries and rockeries, the Eden Project features futuristic domes that recreate the different climates experienced on Earth.

Shakespeare's Birthplace (Stratford-upon-Avon)
