Top sights of England and Wales

25 Entries

Sightseeing in England and Wales offers something for everyone from history buffs to nature lovers and we’ve got hostels near all the highlights. Visit the mysterious Stonehenge – a ring of standing stones which were built in prehistoric times for reasons unknown. If you’re heading for the bustle of London, hop on an open-topped red bus and let it drive you past all the famous sights such as Big Ben, the London Eye, Tower Bridge and the Houses of Parliament. If you’re outside Buckingham Palace at the right time you’ll see the impressive Changing of the Guard, done with great pomp and ceremony. For a less formal atmosphere, head to the vibrant Camden Market where the people-watching’s as good as the shopping and street food. And then there are the many castles that dot the landscape – the medieval Cardiff Castle sits regally atop a hill and was built by the Norman invaders.
