Nearly half of Britons have a UK bucket list of places they want to visit and experience. From climbing the British Isles highest mountain to Hadrian’s iconic wall, here are a few bucket list landmarks that you can find across the British Isles.

An iconic London landmark perched on the edge of the Thames, the Tower of London is one of the UK’s most fascinating tourist sites. Unravel the secrets of London that lie behind the castle walls. The Tower of London experience includes a guided tour, live re-enactments and access to exhibitions. And don’t forget to witness the dazzling, world famous Crown Jewels!

2 Walking Hadrian’s Wall

Hadrian’s Wall is a unique must-see landmark built in AD 122 to separate Roman Britain and Scotland. The wall ran from Wallsend in the east to Bowness on the Solway Firth.
