Frontiers of the Roman Empire(Hadrian’s Wall - The “Hadrian’s Wall” which was previously inscribed on the World Heritage List, is part of the transnational property “Frontiers of the Roman Empire”.)
Although we've been to a lot, there are a number of places we haven't visited. We did try to visit Bath once, but found we couldn't park so ended up visiting nearby Wells instead. We've also seen Stonehenge from a distance, but have yet to visit the tourist attraction. Similarly we have seen the Forth bridge but not been on it.
The list includes some places we will never visit. Remote islands, especially those inaccessible and untouched by a human presence, are never going to happen.
But Bermuda? (Why is that under UK sites?*) Now there's an idea......
*Bermuda is a British island territory in the North Atlantic Ocean so it's UNESCO site is included as a UK site.

Literature has been a force for change, innovation, openness and collaboration throughout the city's history. It is where Engels and Marx worked together at Chetham's Library and where Elizabeth Gaskell wrote her campaigning novels.
