Britain, places to visit, attractions, heritageThis is the place to search for places to visit and things of interest in Britain, by name, location, type, keyword – or just have a browse.  It is a growing directory – over 780 entries have been listed as of July 2020.  Most entries have links for further information.



Berthed by Glasgow's Riverside Museum is the SV (sailing vessel) Glenlee, launched in 1896. Known locally as “The Tall Ship”, this is one of the last steel-hulled bulk cargo carriers in existence, one of only 5 Clyde-built sailing ships still afloat – and the only one in Britain. Extensively and lovingly restored, Glenlee can be seen at the same time as visiting the Riverside Museum and is also hired out for events (so check before making a special trip).
