    I've been to the UK twice in the last two years and my visit to the British History museum and a few other sites sparked my interest in British history and made me look up this podcast.I visited Canterbury Cathedral in 2013. Although the actual cathedral itself was very interesting I found the audio tour they provide of the ruins of St Augustine's original abbey even more interesting - despite there not being all that much still standing now.

    I visited the city of York and walked around the old city (interrupted by a sudden furious downpour) and hiked up the stairs to the top of the York Minster tower. On my way back to the hotel I took a picture of the old fortress Clifford's Tower.I also visited Chester where I walked the full circuit of the old city walls. There are also are some interesting roman ruins there.

    In 2014 I also visited South Wales and took a day trip to St David's Head in Pembrokeshire. The most interesting part by far was seeing the remains of a prehistoric settlement and the dolmen or burial structure there.I hiked up to the point and happened to meet a couple of fellow history buffs there. They very kindly showed me the circles of the old huts I'd just walked right through without noticing. Looking back inland from the point itself you can clearly make out the outlines of the old structures. He also told me that apparently in ancient times the trees would have grown right up to the shoreline so this would have been an amazingly secluded place.Not too far from from St David's head point is an ancient dolmen/cromlech.
