Great Britain is one of the most popular places among tourists from all over the world. Millions of people visit GB every year and number of them always grows. The most visited place is London with its famous London Eye. The London Eye has now become one of the iconic sights of London. Opened in March 2000 the wheel is a metaphor for the turning of the century. The London Eye is 135m high and weighs 2100 tonnes. There are 32 capsules attached to the wheel which travels gently at a speed of 26cm per second. Each rotation takes 30 minutes in which time you can marvel at the views that span up to 40km in all directions (depending on the weather). This is the UK's most popular paid for visitor attraction, visited by over 3.5 million people a year.

Among the top 10 sights are also Big Ben(the 1st place), Stonehenge(the 2nd place),British Parliament, Blackpool Tower, Edinburgh Castle. Human habitation of the site is dated back as far as the 9th century BC, although the nature of early settlement is unclear. There has been a royal castle here since at least the reign of David I in the 12th century, and the site continued to be a royal residence until the Union of the Crowns in 1603. As one of the most important fortresses in the Kingdom of Scotland, Edinburgh Castle has been involved in many historical conflicts, from the Wars of Scottish Independence in the 14th century, up to the Jacobite Rising of 1745, and has been besieged, both successfully and unsuccessfully, on several occasions. From the later 17th century, the castle became a military base, with a large garrison. Its importance as a historic monument was recognised from the 19th century, and various restoration programmes have been carried out since.

London Tower is also very popular. It is visited by 2 mln. people every year. A bit less people visit Winsor Castle. British Museumis visited by 5,4 mln. people.

A great number of people visit free entry amusement parks in the UK such as XScape (6,9mln)and Blackpool Pleasure Beach (5,5 mln). / Рассказывается о наиболее популярных и посещаемых достопримечательностях, приведены ссылки на краткие презентации


People from all over the world are attracted to GB by their wonderful sights. We see the main reason of this popularity in a fantastic balance between ancient and modern. Everyone can find there something to admire. The British save their history, traditions and customs. They are really proud of their country and their culture.

/Люди со всего мира приезжают в Британию благодаря удивительному балансу между стариной и современностью. Здесь каждый может найти что-то для себя. Британцы гордятся своей культурой, страной и обычаями.
