Beamish open-air museum offers insights into North East England’s industrial heritage. Causey Arch, the world’s oldest single-arch railway bridge, stands close to the popular attraction.
Frankfurt Airport is, by far, Germany's busiest. Yet compared to cities such as Munich and Berlin, Frankfurt am Main remains largely unexplored by international travellers. It's easy to get into the city centre during a layover in Frankfurt.
The sun has only just peeked above the horizon but I’m already out on the streets of New Delhi. I want to make the most of my time in India’s capital and the golden hour, shortly after sunrise, is a great time for viewing the city’s architecture.
For fans of cricket, nothing beats attending a Test match at the famous ground, which is now more than 200 years old. However, if you can't attend a fixture, it's still possible to visit the MCC Museum and join a guided tour of Lord's Cricket Ground.

The castle is the biggest in England and the location of the oldest surviving lighthouse in the country. Take a look at Dover Castle attractions for a snapshot into this Dover travel guide.
Baseball is America’s summer sport. Taking in a ball game while slurping cola and munching fast food is a way of experiencing American life. You can do that at countless minor league games across the state. Alternatively, head to Yankee Stadium, in the Bronx, or Citi Field, in Queens, to watch one of New York’s major league teams. Four hours’ drive north of the Big Apple lies Cooperstown, home to the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. It tells the story of the game and displays artefacts that have been worn and held by the sport’s biggest names. A self-guided tour means, like the drive northward, you do it in your own time.
