History has a way of coming alive in little details. It’s running your hands over the brim of a silk top hat at Spitalfields Market (London’s oldest), or walking along the scaffolding at Canterbury Cathedral, which has been a work in progress since 597. It’s feeling the floorboards underfoot at the 12th-century Mermaid Inn, or seeing the color of the River Thames in the early morning light. Across Britain you’ll find historical sites whose stories continue unfolding to this very day.
