Discover #OMGB moments: Heritage

 

Britain packs a world-class punch when it comes to heritage. Every inch of this island is crammed with layer upon layer of history, from prehistoric burial sites to legends of international appeal. Where else can you stay overnight in castles that have withstood both sieges and royal guests, dress up in period costume and parade through a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or soak in the same mineral-rich thermal waters that warmed the Romans and Celts? When you’re exploring clifftop castles, teeing off on a 600-year-old golf course or drinking in establishments that have sheltered literary giants, you can only be in Britain!
