On 19 May 2018, people were captivated around the world by the beautiful and moving marriage ceremony of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry at St Georges Chapel in the grounds of Windsor Castle, the oldest and largest inhabited castle in the world and the Queen’s favourite weekend residence.
If the Wedding has whet your appetite to discover more about our Royal heritage, why not visit one of Her Majesty’s other official residences?
The magnificent Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh, Scotland, is best known in history as having been home toMary Queen of Scots, Hillsborough Castle, County Down, is the Queen’s official residence in Northern Ireland, and of course, Buckingham Palace, in all its splendour, the official residence of our Monarchs since 1837, needs no introduction!
There is so much more though to our great country…..
Explore the breath-taking landscapes of our stunning National Parks. Here in the UK we have no less than 15 National Parks, each boasting their own unique beauty.
There are 46 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and 40 National Scenic Areas(NSA) in Scotland, providing some of the best countryside for walking, cycling, horse-riding and wildlife. How fortunate we are that these designated areas have been protected for our enjoyment and that of future generations.
