World Heritage Sites – United Kingdom

    England, like France, Spain, and other Western European countries has witnessed much of the history of civilization in the last 2000 years. It is not only rich in political history, but there is also considerable religious history to document. This collection of countries has numerous World Heritage Sites, but here are my favorites along with pictures to make the location "come alive."
