In any holiday area, there will be many attractions specifically designed to tempt the tourist. Theme parks and amusement arcades are just a couple of examples. However, many attractions
were not created to amuse the tourist... ancient monuments, castles, cathedrals, industrial heritage sites all had a purpose long before tourists arrived on the scene.
Perhaps you are interested in botanic gardens, stately homes and palaces like those in the care of organisations like National Trust? Or maybe you appreciate
the majesty of a fine steam engine on a preserved or miniature railways. If you are an animal lover, exotic ones in zoos or wild ones in sanctuaries, then take
a look at what is on offer. We also provide information on theatres, music venues, cinemas, etc.
