5 Interesting Places To See In Britain!



Britain has some pretty amazing sights to see, but also some very interesting, lesser known tourist attractions.

Hop on a coach tour to find those fascinating places and discover something new.



1. Anne Hathaway's Cottage


Anne Hathaway's Cottage can be found in the village of Shottery, about 1 mile west of Stratford-upon-Avon, and very accessible by coach.

Anne Hathaway lived in this building as a child and was the wife of the world famous playwright and poet, William Shakespeare.

The cottage was acquired in 1892 by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and is now open to the public as a museum set in beautiful extensive gardens.



2. Windermere, Lake District


Visit the outstanding beauty of the Lake District National Park, and be surrounded by the peaceful silence of the misty mountains.

Discover Windermere,  Britain’s largest natural lake, and catch your breath looking over the horizon from a rugged mountain fell.

Explore Windermere Steamboat Museum on a guided tour or indulge in a Windermere Lake Cruise.

Roam the traditional inns and local art galleries, or simply bask in the area which inspired William Wordsworth's poem, 'There was a Boy'.



3. Feathers Hotel, Ludlow


The gorgeous medieval market town of Ludlow is a feast for the eyes and  boasts over 500 listed buildings within its area.

Situated within this picturesque market town is the world famous Feathers Hotel, offering the combined uniqueness of a 17th century coaching inn together with a modern day hotel with all its comfortable facilities.

While there, take a guided tour of  Ludlow Castle and St Laurence's Church, and indulge yourself in the many excellent restaurants and cafes selling local produce.



4.Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff


Cardiff is the capital city of Wales and the largest in Wales, and apparently ranked sixth in the world in National Geographic's alternative tourist destinations.

The Wales Millennium Centre is an outstanding arts centre situated in the Cardiff Bay area of Cardiff and hosts live performances of opera, ballet, musicals, dance, comedy and theatre.

 It also has a Visitor Centre together with shops, bars and restaurants to wile away the time whilst on holiday.




5. Beatles statue at Pier Head, Liverpool


Liverpool is the ideal destination to visit and explore on a coach tour.

With its unique attractions, and world class musical heritage, Liverpool has it all.

 The Beatles statue at Pier Head along Liverpool’s Waterfront has entranced visitors since it was created and unveiled in December 2015 to mark the 50 years since The Beatles final public appearance in Liverpool, at The Empire on the 5 December 1965.

It weighs in at 1.2 tonnes and was sculpted by Andrew Edwards who managed to catch the likeness of the Beatles in striking form.
