What people come to see 
  Thirty million people come to the UK every year to see Britain’s heritage—palaces,cathedrals,castles and museums.So what do they vis-it?Bird’s eye view 
  London is usually the first des-tination.You can get a great view from a giant wheel,the London Eye.Across the river you will see the Houses of Parliament and fa-mous clock tower,Big Ben.Looking east you can’t miss St Paul’s Cathedral.It was built after the o-riginal church was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in1666.The Tower and museums 
  A boat trip on the Thames takes you to the Tower of London.Sever-al famous people were imprisoned here before their execution—in-cluding one of King Henry VIII’s wives,Anne Boleyn.The Natural History Museum has dinosaur skeletons,a model of a blue whale and a statue of Charles Darwin,a scientist famous for his theory of evolution.The Science Museum next door has exhibitions on Britain’s industrial revolution,the history of flight and the exploration of space.A“dangerous”castle 
  One of the most spectacular ex-amples of heritage outside London is Warwick Castle.Be careful as you enter across the drawbridge.There are‘murder holes’which soldiers used to drop hot oil on the enemy,and under the castle are dungeons(地牢)for prisoners.Roman remains 
  When the Romans invaded,they built roads,towns and walls.In Bath you can still see the original Roman bathing complex,with its heating system and mosaics.In York,the Jorvik museum is dedicat-ed to the Vikings,who came from Scandinavia and captured the city in the9th century.The Minster and medieval streets make it a popular destination.Edinburgh’s delights 
  Across the border in Edinburgh is the Museum of Scotland.It con-tains some exquisite12th century chess pieces and the remains of Dol-ly the Sheep,the world’s first cloned animal.Thousands of people come here in August for the Inter-national Festival.If you climb an extinct volcano,Arthur’s Seat,you get the best view over the city.Stonehenge secrets 
  For one of the earliest man-made structures in Britain,you shouldn’t miss Stonehenge.This ancient stone circle attracts visitors from all over the world,but its ori-gins remain a mystery.
