Britain's Favourite Attraction

National Sea Life Centre
National Sea Life Centre

For those with a bit of oomph there are thousands of things to see in Britain. It just takes the energy to get those train tickets, drive the car, or hop on the bus and get there. Plus maybe an entry fee - but that is not always the case: with our countryside, many museums and public monuments you don't have to put your hand in your pocket. There are dozens of preserved railways; thousands of stately homes and castles; parks, caves, beaches... and every one of them more memorable and educational than repeats of Eastenders, to say nothing of being more fun. Which British attraction gets your vote?
