5 The Queen
Helen Mirren’s Oscar-winning turn as Her Majesty, also made a star of several Scottish houses. You can practice your royal wave at Culzean Castle (above), Castle Fraser in Aberdeenshire and the Royal residence at Balmoral. You can spend the day picnicking in the gardens of the Culzean Castle or discover the smugglers’ caves and feed the deers at the wildlife park. If London is your destination of choice, why not go on the Diamond JubileeWalking Tour? It’ll take you through the history of the royal family, visiting landmarks such as the birthplace of Queen Elizabeth II, Clarence House and not to forget the magnificent Buckingham Palace.
