1. Great Castles & Historic Attractions In North And Mid Wales
World Heritage sites. The great fortresspalace of Caernarfon architectural terms, the most accomplished medieval fortress in britain. on Wales's Wealth of historic sites write to-
North and Mid Wales is renowned for its mighty castles - some of the world's finest - constructed during the troubled medieval period. Standing supreme is the quartet of castles at Beaumaris Caernarfon Conwy and Harlech , landmarks in the development of medieval military architecture, their lofty position recognised by their status as World Heritage Sites. The great fortress-palace of Caernarfon , with its soaring walls and imperious towers, is perhaps the most famous of the four. Yet all are equally inspiring. Spectacularly sited Harlech is perched on a crag overlooking sea and mountain. Gritty Conwy , aided and abetted by a ring of amazingly well-preserved town walls, conjures up a convincing medieval atmosphere. And at Beaumaris we have, in pure architectural terms, the most accomplished medieval fortress in Britain. These awesome stone fortresses , built by the English monarch Edward I to stamp his authority on Wales, do not stand alone. The landscape is dotted with castles of all kinds. There are mountain strongholds such as Dolwyddelan and Dolbadarn, homes of the Welsh princes. There are other Edwardian fortresses like

Welcome to the Dublin Historic and Famous Sights Section, in which we include a guide to the major sights in and around Dublin City, and also pictures of them and a brief history. Although Dublin is well known as being a place of friendliness and 'craic', the city is also a very old and beautiful City, it is well over 1000 years old. When you walk the streets of Dublin you'll be able to see some magnificent old buildings such as Christ Church Cathedral which was built in 1234 AD, although there has been a church on the site since 1028 AD. Below are some of the main sites to see while walking Dublin.... Some of the Sights to See in Dublin...

    The Custom House The Custom House is one of Dublin's most magnificent buildings. It was designed by James Gandon and built between 1781-91 to replace an older building on Essex Quay. It was designed to be looked at from all angles and is rich in structural detail. Of particular interest are the 14 keystone heads which represent the 13 Irish Rivers and the Atlantic Ocean, the cornerstones of Irish trade. The original interior was completely destroyed in 1921 when it was attacked by the IRA during the War of Independence. It currently houses the Dept of the Environment.

    The Best Victorian Sites Albert Memorial (London): If any statue symbolizes an era, this flamboyant tribute to Victoria's consort, her beloved Albert (1819-61), does; it is the epitome of Victorian excess. The statue depicts Albert holding a catalog of the Great Exhibition. He overlooks the South Kensington Culture Centre, his last legacy. The 4m (14-ft.) high statue, with the blessing of the queen, went into place in 1876 and was instantly described as an "outsize reliquary casket." Houses of Parliament Osborne House (southeast of East Cowes on the Isle of Wight): This was Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's most cherished residence. Constructed at Queen Victoria's own expense, it is imbued with her spirit. The rooms are a perfect period piece of Victoriana, with all their artifacts and stuffy chairs a cozy clutter best evoked by her sitting room. Grief-stricken at the death of Albert in 1861, the Queen requested that the house be kept as it was upon the death of her husband. Manchester (Lancashire): A major inland port since 1894, Manchester long had a reputation as a blackened, foggy, and forbidding city, grim and dowdy, the worst of the Midlands. But it has been cleaned up, and today its center is filled with masterpieces of sturdy, solid Victorian architecture, including homes built for the great industrial barons of the 19th century.

    cumstronghold, the finest late medieval fortress-palace in britain. and fascinating religious sites, the great Bishop s Palace Cadw Welsh historic Monuments.
    This large area from the Wales-England border to Pembrokeshire in the far west , is a surprisingly diverse stretch of national parklands, high mountains, wooded valleys, spectacular beaches and towering headlands. Its history is as richly patterned as the landscape. Prehistoric settlers, Roman soldiers, Christian missionaries, medieval warlords and industrial magnates have all made their mark here, leaving a wonderful legacy of places to visit. Pentre Ifan Cromlech in the Preseli Hills is one of Wales's finest ancient burial chambers, made of local 'bluestones' which were somehow transported all the way to Salisbury Plain to form Stonehenge's inner circle. In AD75 the Romans established an important base at Caerleon - today it is the most varied and fascinating Roman site in Britain. But the largest impact on the landscape came in medieval times when the castle builders erected a chain of fortresses from east to west. They began on the border at Chepstow , where they constructed one of Britain's first stone-built castles.

    20. Welcome To Tryon Palace Historic Sites & Gardens
    Rarely is a historic site so thoroughly understood that Most sites must search for fresh glimpses into 1760 to 1770 at comparable estates in great britain. .
    Return to Gardens contents What Was the Garden Like in the Olden Days?
    by Perry Mathewes, curator of gardens Rarely is a historic site so thoroughly understood that all questions have been answered. Most sites must search for fresh glimpses into their history through previously unknown photos, lists, drawings and written documents. The hope is that new information will bring new, more accurate insight. But occasionally, one piece of information can turn the whole thinking about the site upside down. That is what happened to the Tryon Palace gardens. During the 1950s restoration of the Palace, the Tryon Palace Commission hired landscape architect Morley Williams to design an appropriate landscape for the new Palace. With almost no known documentation of the original landscape, the Commission simply asked Williams to develop a landscape that was "like those which flourished from 1760 to 1770 at comparable estates in Great Britain." The primary source material to which Williams had access was two maps of New Bern drawn in 1769 by Claude Sauthier that included details of the Palace grounds. However, the general consensus of historians was that the Sauthier maps were not reliable depictions of the gardens. Scholars postulated that little, if any, work was done to the grounds before Governor Tryon left to become governor of New York. Tryon only occupied the Palace for thirteen months and the cost of the Palace itself was quite controversial at the time.
