225 Of Cultural Interest in Great Britain

Of Cultural Interest in Edinburgh
Old Town of Edinburgh
(37)
Edinburgh is a magical place. Always great to go there and have a fabulous time. It's like travelling in time. Really one of the best places I've ever been.
Of Cultural Interest in Liverpool
Albert Dock
(15)
Albert Dock! Great place you have to visit if you're in Liverpool. It's integral to the history of the city, and will help you know how the goods came to this particular port. Be sure to go see the museums in the area as well. You can't miss it!
Of Cultural Interest in London

Of Cultural Interest in London
Greenwich to Westminster by Boat
(6)
Not for the world would I miss this spectacular catamaran ride (or cruise) down the Thames. Actually, you can take the boat and go from Westminster to Greenwich Pier, I've done it both ways and it's a thousand times better to do the opposite, especially in the evening when the light is perfect for taking photos. From the catamaran you see London in a different way. It's like going into its depths and feeling its history - old docks impregnated with moss, large red brick factories, bridges on impressive columns and landmarks viewed from another profile. I took the attached photos from a catamaran.
Of Cultural Interest in Saint Andrews
St. Andrews Cathedral
(5)
Located next to the sea and it's just 30 min drive from Dundee. It's full of lovely historical buildings spreaded out all over the town.
Of Cultural Interest in Chelmsford
Hylands Park
(1)
when they host the v festival it's a great atmosphere with brilliant organization and performances. It's well catered and also a nice place to camp due to the fields being level and the grass being longer and softer.
Of Cultural Interest in Glencoe
Glencoe
(5)
Not the best views in Scotland, because any view in Scotland is absolutely wonderful, but this is equally special. Stop to see the animals in the photos (I'm ashamed I do not remember the name) and an isolated building.
Of Cultural Interest in London
Horse Guards Parade
The Horse Guards Parade is a space between the River Thames and St James Park, also near the British Parliament and Trafalgar Square, where riders of the Household Cavalry change guard. Many people compare this to the famous changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, but of course, it is not as spectacular. On the Queen's birthday, in June, Trooping of the Colour is celebrated.
Of Cultural Interest in London
City District
(2)
Around the Metro Bank, Moorgate Street and on to Liverpool Street Station, is the district of the City, with its tall buildings and headquarters of banks and corporations. The term City of London designates a small part of the city, its historic center is around the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. The City, or the Square Mile, is the financial center of the United Kingdom. In medieval times there was only this neighborhood, then it expanded into ​​Westminster, Greater London and was born in the merger of these two areas, which until now were separate. The City is obviously more lively when the offices are open and people come and go to work. At lunchtime the restaurants are full, but at night the neighborhood is almost completely empty. Now it's surrounded by popular neighborhoods with strong Asian immigration, that are more animated and have delicious food.
Of Cultural Interest in London
Notting Hill Carnival
(5)
If you're in London during the last weekend in August, head to Notting Hill for two days of Caribbean-style partying! Organised for the first time in 1664, this carnival allowed locals to celebrate the culture and traditions of the Caribbean. During the years 1970-1980, this carnival was scene to many fights between young immigrants and police. Today, the Notting Hill Carnival is a place of celebration with parades in the streets full of dancers and samba schools along with calypso, soul, reggae, and hip-hop music. Again, it's at the end of August (it is actually a Sunday and a Monday, holidays for our English friends). Sunday is devoted to children and Monday is a parade for adults. The parades take place between 10 and 21:00. Look at the pictures, it will make you want to go! :)
Of Cultural Interest in Edinburgh
Edinburgh International Festival
(3)
The largest festival in the world is the Edinburgh Festival (with 2,000+ events). It started in 1947 (to revitalize the city post World War II) and today is the soul of the city, which in itself is attractive. It consists of 12 festivals, Bank of Scotland Imaginate Festival, Edinburgh Art Festival, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Edinburgh's Hogmanay & New Year Party, Edinburgh International Book Festival, Edinburgh International Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, Edinburgh International Science Festival, Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, Edinburgh Mela, Edinburgh Military Tattoo and Scottish International Storytelling Festival.
Of Cultural Interest in Dundee
Tay Bridge
(2)
Built in 1878, and opened by Queen Victoria, this railway bridge was the world's longest at the time, nearly 3 km. It spans the River Tay between Dundee and the east side of Scotland, including Edinburgh. Shortly after its construction, the bridge collapsed during the night of December 28, 1879, during a heavy storm. The train didn't stop in time, and no survivors were found. Engineer Thomas Boucher was convicted and the bridge was rebuilt in 1887, as we can see today.
Of Cultural Interest in London
British Library
(3)
One of the best libraries I have visited, but it's a pity that they don't let you into the room. You can only walk around inside the enclosure without going into a single room. If you are a librarian or you can change it, it will make a special visit.
Of Cultural Interest in Portsmouth
Portsmouth
(2)
Two years ago, I was on Erasmus in Portsmouth in the UK. When I arrived, I went out with my camera to explore, and ended up in a small park divided into several zones. The last zone caught my eye with its unusual decor, so I took this picture.
Of Cultural Interest in Liverpool
Liverpool Central Library
(2)
It is located very close to the shopping area and next to the train station in the historic area where you can see the oldest buildings of the city. One of them is the home to the largest library in the city, Central Library. The building was completed in 1860 and also housed the World Museum. Apparently, in the coming years some parts of these buildings will be demolished to be built again, with a more modern style.
Of Cultural Interest in Manchester
The Lowry
Located on the quay, next to an outlet center and opposite the Imperial War Museum, is The Lowry - a spectacular building. By its design you can imagine that it's some sort of art exhibition hall - and so it is. It's a building dedicated to art in all its versions: painting, sculpture, music, etc. It was designed by Michael Wilford and has a spectacular theater with seating for about 2,000. The truth is that the Guggenheim has an air of style like this building and, above all, it's not lost on the visitor. It's probably the most attractive of the city of Manchester.
Of Cultural Interest in London
British Film Institute
BFI is the "British Film Institute" - the film library of the country. This place is incredible and I highly recommend that you at least check it out, whether you look at one of the alternative displays, watch a film or look at its extensive catalog that is completely free and open to the public. This institute offers an independent movie listings combined with specialised courses on specific directors or programs with certain topics. This institute is a great form of entertainment in this city and certainly worth a visit!
Of Cultural Interest in London
Stanfords Bookstore
(2)
Certainly Stanfords is the library that every traveler dreams of. There's everything - a literature section, maps, notebooks and so on. To round it off the shop floor is filled with amazing city maps and a thousand and one globes. A library travel specialist that devotes its lower floor to London and a collection of ancient maps of England. A delightful place to take stock.
