If you’re planning a holiday to explore the history and heritage of the British Isles, then you’re spoilt for choice for amazing places to visit, but where should you begin?

To make that decision a little easier, we’ve created this iPhone and iPad app with our selection of the best places to visit to find history, mystery, fine architecture and spectacular views. Included in our selection is every kind of heritage site from ancient stone circles, Roman fortifications and Anglo-Saxon abbeys, to sports stadiums, historic houses and royal palaces.

This app has been brought to you by the team behind Discover Britain, Britain’s leading historic travel magazine, which is packed with news and features on our finest heritage sites, practical guides to our cities, coast and countryside and ideas and inspiration for days out and weekends away. With stunning photography and the best travel and history writers around, Discover Britain has everything you need to plan a holiday at home or learn about the events that have helped to shape our island nation.

We hope that our app will offer plenty of inspiration for your travels around Britain, from Lands End and the western tip of Wales to the Highlands and islands of Scotland and everywhere in between.
