The best of British

From the mining landscape of Devon and Cornwall in the south, to Neolithic Orkney in the north, Britain boasts a host of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, so maybe there's one you can visit near you. If there isn't, why not take a look at our photo gallery and start planning your next getaway?

There are lots of places of cultural and natural heritage around the British Isles that UNESCO considers to have outstanding universal value. They range from the great megalithic blocks of Stonehenge and Avebury to the elegant Georgian city of Bath, from the breath-taking feat of engineering that is Pontcysyllte Aqueduct to the awe-inspiring Gothic monumentalism of Westminster Abbey. They include castles, cathedrals and palaces, religious and public monuments, gardens and natural and industrial landscapes, the ancient and the relatively modern. We've chosen a selection from the 25 UNESCO sites around the British Isles. What do you think?
