History is everywhere you look in the British Isles. The region is home to legendary villages, thatched-roof houses and scores of castles, churches and colleges from centuries past. Cruise to the British Isles to check out the Titanic Belfast monument in Northern Ireland, with its interactive galleries and impressive structure on the old shipyard.

STIR THE POT

THE OG FISH AND CHIPS

Across the British Isles, you'll find thousands of restaurants and shops exclusively serving fish and chips, which first appeared in England in the 1860s. Flaky, tender white fish is deep-fried in a thin, crunchy layer of batter and served alongside thick-cut fried potatoes and 'mushy' peas, as the locals call them, which are blended with cream or occasionally ultra-rich bone marrow.
