2. Hampshire - Portsmouth's Historic Dockyard

When buying a full navy ticket, which allows you unlimited visits a year, there is so much to see and do. The ticket includes unlimited entry to all attractions, ships and museums, and you can even get out on the water on the Harbour boat trip - a 45 minute tour with sailor's eye view of the Historic Dockyard and warships of the modern Royal Navy.

1. Dublin - Guinness Storehouse

Perhaps leave your younger children at home for this one. The famous brewery holds tours year round, where you can experience the tale of Ireland's famous beer, complete with beer tastings and rooftop bar (as long as the weather prevails).
