- Hilarious one-star reviews on TripAdvisor have slated British tourist attractions

The UK is known for its rich history and bustling tourist attractions – from the mysterious Stonehenge and royal Windsor Castle, to the outstanding natural beauty of Giant’s Causeway.
But while they may be highly regarded across the world, some visitors have been less than impressed with the likes of Big Ben, Kew Gardens and the London Eye.
Taking to TripAdvisor, one holidaymaker called Stonehenge ‘just a pile of stones,’ giving it a one-star review in disregard of its 5,000 years of history, while another described Warwick Castle, which was built in 1068, as a ‘Disneyland wannabe’.
Among the other hilarious cutting reviews, complied by BoredPanda, include The Angel of the North being called ‘boring’ and Ben Nevis being critiqued because it’s ‘too steep and too high.’
