Think you can identify landmarks based purely off of their description? We have 10 iconic English landmarks, I will give you an overview of where you can find them and their most distinguishing features - all you have to do is pick the right answer!
This natural limestone arch is possibly the most memorable location along the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. Golden Sandy beaches give you a perfect view of the natural wonder, or you can view it from the cliffs above to soak up this gigantic piercing hole in the section of rock that juts out into the sea.
In the South East of the Lake District, this long strip of water, or ribbon, forms the largest natural lake in England. This Cumbrian natural beauty spot is one of the most popular holiday destinations in England.
A National Trust managed tidal island featuring a castle atop its small hill, this photogenic spot is accessible at low tide via a man-made causeway near Marazion, Cornwall. It shares many similarities with its French counterpart of the same name, although this is the smaller of the two tidal islands.
This Roman-era fortification formed the defensive line that separated Roman era England from the Northern Picts. Spanning from the edges of the River Tyne to Solway Firth on the Irish Sea, this is the largest Roman archaeological site in Britain.
This Wiltshire based landmark could accidentally be mistaken for rubble, but its prehistoric design potentially hides greater mysteries - we may not know exactly what its original purpose was but it certainly makes for amazing photos at sunrise or sunset. This unmistakable icon of England combines with a large number of neighbouring archaeological sites within an area of around 30-miles to form a UNESCO World Heritage site.
An eight-mile stretch of coastline in Kent famous for its chalky appearance, this spot is just a stone's throw away via a small strait from mainland Europe. The entire area is a site of scientific special interest and conservation, with the National Trust doing its part to protect these iconic precipices.
This 19th-century iconic suspension bridge, found in the centre of London, is an often visited, photographed and explored landmark over the Thames. Its name is sometimes confused with one of its neighbouring bridges, but this one is the far more recognisable structure with its secondary elevated walkway and raising bridge deck to allow the passage of ships - plenty of space to enjoy the exhibition on display
Near the south coast of Cornwall, this set of bubbly buildings look like something you'd see in a sci-fi movie set on Mars. Inside, you will find a whole heap of different flora and can be an educational adventure into the variety of plants found everywhere on earth. If the trees and flowers aren't of interest to you, sometimes you can even catch a concert here too.
Dominating the skyline as you approach Gateshead, this sculpture looks ready to take flight or possibly wrap you up in a hug. This colossal steel structure had to be anchored carefully to withstand the potential winds it would see from the top of its hill, but having sat in place for over 20 years it seems this theological statue is going nowhere.
