Situated at Salisbury Plain, Stonehenge is one of the most well-known landmarks in the country. Try staying at a bed and breakfast near Stonehenge and you will have the opportunity to experience this mysterious structure at first hand.
Scholars and historians have long debated the purpose and origin of the circle of monolithic stones.
It was originally thought that people in the Neolithic period, when it was constructed, would not have had the means to lift and transport the huge stones.
Recently it has been argued that the construction could have been carried out by hand using leverage and early technology. It has been theorised that Stonehenge was meant as an observatory, a burial ground, a place of healing, or a place of worship.
Whatever your religious beliefs, it's impossible not to be stunned by the sheer beauty of York Minster. There are many bed and breakfast establishments within easy reach of this amazing structure.
This Gothic cathedral is located in the ancient city of York. Although the site has had a place of worship located on it since about 630AD, the Minster we see today was begun in around 1230 and completed in 1472.
It was constructed in a cruciform shape, common to many other buildings of Christian worship. The cathedral boasts some of the most beautiful and elaborate stained glass windows in the country, some of which date back as far the 12th century.
It also contains the Great East Window, the largest example of medieval stained glass in the world.
Portmeirion is one of the most unique villages in the UK and a great place to spend a bed and breakfast stay. This village is located on the west coast of Wales but has a Mediterranean appearance, said to have been inspired by the designer Sir Clough Williams-Ellis' love of Portofino in Italy.
The style of architecture and the colours are unlike any other place in the country and Portmeirion has inspired many writers, musicians and TV producers. It is most well-known as the filming location of "The Village" in 1960s TV series The Prisoner.
There are many options when you want to find a bed and breakfast in Portmeirion - the majority of the buildings offer guest accommodation, due to the village's status as an extremely popular tourist spot.
Birthplace of William Shakespeare and home to the Royal Shakespeare Company, the market town of Stratford-upon-Avon has long been a popular tourist attraction and a fascinating place to be when you fancy a bed and breakfast stay.
The town's connection to Shakespeare has ensured its enduring appeal and prominence - it's impossible to walk a few yards in the town without being reminded of its most famous son. See five houses that featured in his life, including his place of birth, place of death and his wife's home, and walk the streets where he may have been inspired to write an early play or sonnet.
Apart from the Shakespeare connection, the town is a lovely location with many beautifully preserved medieval buildings.
Bath is a World Heritage Site and the location of the UK's only hot springs. Following the Roman occupation of Britain in 4AD, the original Bathhouse was built upon these springs. The Great Bath is still there today in remarkably well-preserved condition. Other sights include the Roman Temple and the Sacred Spring, which was worshipped by the Celts.
These can be found below street level and have been excavated and restored extensively over the years. Since the city was once a busy Roman town, there is plenty to see in the way of Roman artefacts and many of them are housed in the city's museums.
Although the water that flows through the original Roman baths is not open to the public, you can visit the Thermae Bath Spa which allows you to experience the thermal baths and hot springs as the Romans would have. For history lovers, a stay at a bed and breakfast in Bath is a great experience.
The long and chequered history of the Tower of London makes for an interesting bed and breakfast stay. It began with the White Tower which was built by William the Conqueror and is now the centrepiece to the fortress.
Two of the most iconic symbols of the Tower are the ceremonial Yeoman Warders, otherwise known as Beefeaters, who guard the tower and act as tour guides, and the ravens who nest in the tower. It is said that if the ravens ever leave, the monarchy, the kingdom and the White Tower would crumble.
The Crown Jewels have been houses here for centuries, and the Tower was used as a prison throughout its history. Prisoners held at the "Bloody Tower" include Guy Fawkes, Sir Walter Raleigh and various monarchs.
Many prisoners were tortured and executed here, which has ensured the Tower's reputation as one of the most haunted buildings in England - the ghosts of Lady Jane Grey and Henry VI have been sighted here.
This imposing medieval structure is situated in Warwick in the West Midlands and overlooks the River Avon. Its initial construction was ordered by William the Conqueror in the 11th Century, but it was added to right up until the 18th century to become the magnificent structure that we see today.
The castle is a popular tourist attraction and plays host to many events including concerts, ghost hunts, archery displays, bird shows, jousting and much more. Warwick Castle also contains one of the world's largest and most powerful siege engines, and boasts a collection of armoury that is regarded as second only to that of the Tower of London.
To experience medieval splendour in one of the UK's most spectacular buildings, try booking a bed and breakfast in the local area near Warwick Castle.
Hampton Court Palace is located in the London borough of Richmond Upon Thames. It was originally built circa 1514 and was enlarged by King Henry VIII, its most well known royal resident, during his reign. From around 1525 to 1760, it was the London home of the monarchy, and was opened to the public by Queen Victoria in 1838.
The former royal palace is famous for two things: its hedge maze, and its numerous reported ghost sightings. Its huge maze covers a third of an acre of the grounds and is estimated to have been planted in the 1680s.
As the building is most closely associated with Henry VIII, it is thought to be haunted by the ghosts of his household. It is said that the corridors of Hampton Court play host to the bloodcurdling screams of Catherine Howard, Anne Boleyn with her head tucked beneath her arm, children in 17th century clothing, ghostly soldiers, spectral figures in robes, and the spirit of Henry himself.
Try a bed and breakfast near Hampton Court Palace to experience the spookier side of British history.
Edinburgh Castle perches on top of Castle Rock, overlooking the Scottish capital with an air of majestic authority. The rock has been utilised as a stronghold for more than three thousand years.
The castle that we see there today dates mostly back to the 16th century, when the fortifications were rebuilt and strengthened after the medieval structure was largely destroyed by artillery bombardment. The oldest section of the castle, St Margaret's Chapel, is the oldest building in Edinburgh. It dates right back to the 12th century and the reign of King David I.
The castle has a long and colourful military history and was used as a prison for over 80 years, until 1923. Today it is a very popular tourist attraction and is visited by many tourists every single year.
There is still a largely ceremonial military presence at the castle, and the building is the backdrop to the annual Edinburgh Military Tattoo.
The London Eye sits on the South Bank of the River Thames and is currently the biggest Ferris wheel in Europe, standing an impressive 135 metres tall. It was officially opened on New Year's Eve 1999 to mark the dawning of the new millennium and at the time was the largest Ferris wheel in the world.
It has gone on to become one of the most popular visitor attractions in the UK and has been rode by tens of millions of people. The wheel is made up of 32 pods, and can hold up to 800 people at one time.
It takes about half an hour for the wheel to complete a full revolution and on a clear day you can see 25 miles from the peak.
