What to expect

Stonehenge, Wiltshire

One of the world’s richest archaeological destinations

With Stonehenge at one end of the country and magnificently carved Pictish stones at the other – and a whole host of incredible sites both in between and to the sides – the UK is home to an array of captivating archaeology. Years of history among varied and often surprising landscapes give birth to intriguing stories of the past, some of which are supported by fact and others presented as folklore, but all are well worth exploring.

Poulnabrone dolmen

Discover awe-inspiring remains at every turn

Even if you’ve visited the UK before – or if you call this part of the world home – chances are that you won’t have explored everything it has to offer. Yes, this country might be fairly small, but that doesn’t mean it’s lacking in things to see and do! With incredibly rich history and archaeological sites that range from chambered tombs and mysterious monoliths, to ancient fortifications and even amphitheatres, there is something magnificent around every corner. Delve into the stories, myths and legends to be found here.
