    Jigsaw puzzles from English Heritage

    Jigsaws and puzzles

    There are a number to choose from, featuring famous places owned and run by English Heritage.  This one is Clifford Castle but you've got others such as Stonehenge (of course), Battle Abbey, Framlingham Castle, Hadrians Wall, Lindisfarne, Osborne House, Kenilworth Castle, Tintagel, Cliffords Tower and more.  There are also some King & Queens puzzles, plus some featuring famous people through the ages.

     English Heritage Monopoly games

    Monopoly Games

    There are a couple of Monopoly Games, both made exclusively for English Heritage.

    There's the Castle version - acquire castles instead of hotels.  Try to avoid paying tithes or having to repair your battlements after a siege!  

    The Monopoly game takes you on a chronological journey through the ages, from Prehistory to the Modern Age.
