Houses, Castles and Monuments

Britain Unlimited mentions the houses of Great Britain as well as castles, churches, monuments and landmarks that were important to the people in the site. Whether it was Blenheim Palace where Winston Churchill was born, the Banqueting House in London designed by Inigo Jones and where King Charles the First was beheaded or the Parsonage in Howarth, Yorkshire where the famous Bronte Sisters were born and did most of their writing.

The National Trust (Or National Trust for Scotland) and Historic Houses Association cares for many major houses in the Country but there are still some owned by the original families, or private companies. Most open from about Easter until October and most have some form of entrance fee. English Heritage or Historic Scotland tend to look after castles or other ancient sites which are no longer lived in.
