The United Kingdom is made up of the countries of England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. If you want to go back in time and feel like you’re in a fairy tale or a harry potter film the UK is the place for you; the place with a lot of connected myths, the birthplace of legends. It’s one of the world’s most enchanting places.
All right so for our first location we’re gonna go visit virtually is possibly the most iconic city in the world London. There are just so many places to see you can check out the iconic big bend and walk across the ridge to see the Palace of Westminster. There’s tower bridge which is possibly the most famous bridge in all of London you can go see the stoic guards at Buckingham Palace or take a ride on the London eye If you haven’t already been to London, I’d highly recommend visiting when you can because it’s hard to beat the London atmosphere there’s no city like it in the world.
All right so after exploring London, we’re gonna explore the Stonehenge located in Wiltshire England lies one of the most famous man-made rock structures in the world. There’s a lot of mystery surrounding Stonehenge like what was its purpose and how was it made. Archaeologists believe it was constructed back between 3000 to 2000 BC. Stonehenge consists of a ring of rocks each being around 13 feet high and weighing nearly 25 tons each, it’s unclear what the exact purpose of Stonehenge was. It’s believed that it was used as an astronomical observatory or religious site, either way, it sure makes you stop and think about how people thousands of years ago were able to construct.
This is all right so after Stonehenge, we’re gonna head on over to the Jurassic coast while you won’t find any dinosaurs here you might find some fossils on the beach. The Jurassic Coast is England’s only natural world heritage site and it’s become popular with its white cliffs and picturesque beaches that are full of fossils formed over 65 million years ago. One of the most famous spots on the Jurassic coast is the dirty door, limestone arch that goes straight into the ocean, there’s a great beach there. and I just can’t think of a better place to spend during the hot English summers. One of my favorite spots on the Jurassic coast is old Harry’s rocks, anyone can be baffled by the scenery there. The old hairy rocks are the sea stacks that are made completely out of chalk that marks the end of the Jurassic Coast in world war II. The stacks were used as target practice for pilots. It’s just hard to beat that scenery.
After the Jurassic coast, we’re ahead up north to know about the country of Wales. Now Wales is located in the southwest part of great Britain it’s famous for its mountainous, national parks picturesque coastline, and the distinct Welsh language. One of the most scenic places in Wales is the Snowdonia national park, it’s a region in northwest Wales that are known for their mountains and lakes. The highest peak in Wells mount Snowdonia is located in the park with an elevation of 1085 meters. You can hike up there or you can take the Snowdonia mountain railway to the top. If you’re lucky you might be able to see Ireland across the sea.
Alright so after Wales we’re ahead to the Isle of Man now located in the Irish sea right between England and Ireland lies a rugged island known for its rural landscapes and medieval castles while it’s technically not part of the united kingdom it has a status of crown dependency and the UK is responsible for its defense and external relations. Isle of Man has had an interesting history, humans have lived on it since 6500 BC and in the 19th century, it was ruled by Norway. But in 1266 the place became part of Scotland and now it is a self-governing isle: an interesting place on the Isle of Man is peel castle. It was constructed by Vikings in the 11th-century. It’s a pretty cool castle.
Now we’re gonna head across the sea to explore northern Ireland. Now, Ireland is full of just beautiful scenery dramatic coastal cliffs and countless castles. As a result of the government of Ireland act of 1920, Ireland was split into northern and southern Ireland in 1921. While Southern Ireland became a free Irish state, Northern Ireland remained within the United Kingdom. The capital of Northern Ireland is the City of Belfast where the Titanic ship was born . Dark Hedges is one of the most enchanting places in the whole Northern Ireland.
All right so for our next location, we’re gonna head to Scotland to visit the Isle of Skye in imagination_ this is probably my all-time favorite place in the UK. You feel like you’re in a fairy tale when you visit there. One of the most impressive places in the Isle of Skye; the Old man of Storr. It’s one of my all-time favorite rock formations. Here, one can feel like they are on the set of The game of thrones. It is just a magical place, So the legend of the Old Man of Storr is supposedly a giant that lived there a long time ago, and when he was buried his thumb was left sticking out of the ground. When you go there it’s easy to see why it’s one of the world’s most iconic rock formations. It’s one of my all-time favorite places and I recommend everyone to see it at least once in their life. Just a few minutes away from the Old Man of Storr, there is a breathtaking waterfall that cascade down at the ocean. There’s a nice viewpoint where you can look at the waterfall. The surrounding sea cliffs in the area are also stunning one of the most famous is kilt rock which is right by mile falls I mean it’s just such a cool area there aren’t many waterfalls that fall straight into the ocean. If you’re looking to find some fairies you may want to check out the fairy pools. There are the Paige blue pools that lie at the base of the black colons, make sure you bring some bug spray if you want to do a beautiful hike.
Eileen Monahan castle is one of my favorite castles in The UK situated on a small tidal island at the point where the three great sea locks meet. The castle was built in the 13th century. So, after the Castle we’re gonna head over to one of Scotland’s most iconic locations this is located at the top of the loch shield in the west highlands of Scotland was completed around 1898. This may look familiar because it was featured in the Harry potter films.
We’re gonna head over to Edinburgh now if you want to go back in time Edinburgh is the best place. It’s where JK Rowling wrote her to Harry Potter novels. It’s a medieval old town with intricate neoclassical buildings, cobblestone streets, and beautiful gardens. The iconic Edinburgh castle overlooks the city and is home to Scotland’s crown jewels. In conclusion, I would say that the United Kingdom contains a lot of beauty to see and feel.
