When it is the UK we are talking about, nature and man-made often come together and create wonderful landscapes for visitors. Though it is a bit hard to choose, we have gathered three of them for those adventurous tourists!
Saint Michael’s Mount, located in Cornwall, England is unique in terms of reaching the ısland all by itself. You can reach the ısland either by a ferry boat or on foot! Yes, you read that right.

6- CASTLES FOR THE EYE AND THE MIND
Visiting castles and secret passages filled with memories of the past is a passion for some people. Along with mesmerizing architecture value, these places also have the historical moments that make them exceptional. The UK has many castles fulfilling both visually and historically. And we believe these two should get on that list of yours.
Margate’s Shell Grotto; a passageway in Kent, South East London. Narrow walking paths where the light comes from hollows above, Margate’s Shell Grotto attracts people who love Sherlock Holmes adventures. Why do you ask? The answer is in the mystery of the passageway itself. Discovered back in 1835, the Grotto’s walls are decorated with ornaments and no one knows who built it and why they build it! The walls are filled with shells with different patterns, making it a delight to walk around them. And though it is still a mystery, of course, one day SOMEONE will uncover the mystery, right?
Cromwell’s Castle in the Isles of Scilly first seems like a tall tower with a perfect view of the shore. These are all correct with a little extra. Cromwell’s Castle is from the 17th century and was built to protect the land viewing any possible threats to the ısland. Up there, it is impossible to not to feel like the commander of the place!
