Commissioned before A.D. 1230, Dolbadarn Castle in Snowdonia National Park features the best surviving example of a Welsh round tower.

Take a walk on the moors, go horseback riding on ancient trails, or tour a medieval village in one of the U.K.'s 15 national parks. Known as "Britain's breathing spaces," the parks offer outdoor and sightseeing activities against dramatic landscapes and historic treasures.
