Every month, lots of you share great photos of your visits to English Heritage sites on Instagram using the #englishheritage hashtag. Once again, we’ve picked out a few of our favourites from the past month to feature here on our blog, from a regal pose at Dover Castle to beautiful greenery at Osborne on the Isle of Wight.

JP looking regal at Dover

Our first photo this month is from JP (@hackett68), channeling Henry II as he poses on the throne in Dover Castle‘s Great Tower. Looking positively kingly, JP! Thanks for sharing.

Standing on the edge of an empire

We love this beautiful shot from @stitchingmyworld of the view along Hadrian’s Wall. The north-western edge of the vast Roman Empire, Hadrian’s Wall is a World Heritage Site stretching 73 miles from coast to coast through some of the most dramatic landscapes in the country, and is always popular with walkers.

Jemma explores a Victorian royal palace

This ornate lamp and ceiling detail were captured by Jemma (@finchyinsuffolk) at Queen Victoria’s seaside home of Osborne on the Isle of Wight. The photo was taken in the famous Durbar Room, whose decoration was inspired by the Queen’s love of Indian design and style. Thanks for sharing your experience, Jemma!

Rachael’s glorious greens at Osborne

Also taken at Osborne on the Isle of Wight, we love this gorgeous green view which Rachael took during her visit. Osborne was a beloved home of Queen Victoria and her family, and the greenhouses in the Walled Garden are a treasure trove of horticultural delights all year round.

Share your experience

If you’re visiting our historic sites this autumn, be sure to share your photos with us on social media using #englishheritage. Whether it’s a beautiful landscape shot of an historic garden, or a selfie with a Roman soldier at one of our many events, we love to see your snaps.

Tag your photos with @englishheritage or #englishheritage on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook and we might just get in touch to ask if we can feature your picture here on our blog next month. You can also follow us on Instagram, for beautiful photos and stories from our historic places. 📷
