Ah yes the Cerne Abbas Giant....For forigners get ready for a history lesson....
Unknown when it was made many believe it to be Greek God Hercules and thus many believe it to be carved in early AD around 1900 years ago!

There are dozens of hill carvings in the UK modern and ancient!

Britain is apparently the most haunted country in the world....cool I guess

http://www.mysteriousbritain.co.uk/index.html

Many wonderful things that can be found on these isles!

This is my fave of all hill carvings....you may remember it from page 1 of this thread

The uffington horse...2000+ years old!

Hmm, the USA is great too, its natural and man-made beauty is unique and spectacular, i'm not sure why you would compare the two?They're totally different in almost all repects other than language.

Reminds me why I enjoy going to london as often as I can, so much unique arcitecture around every corner, maybe my favourite large city(although Copenhagen would be close aswell).

Nice landscapes aswell although I think the americans probabley have us(and pretty much everyone outside of the chinese from my personal expereince) beaten on that count.
