National Wonders is our series of short videos highlighting the brilliantly wacky side of our beloved country. Sure, we all know about Westminster Abbey and Stone Henge, but what about Olney's pancake race and bottle kicking in Hallaton?
Join our tour guide, Ben, as he takes you to some of England's most unique events and meets the amazing people behind them.
So get involved and see more below as we ask, ‘Is this really how the UK spends a day?’
Ben tries his hand at egg tossing, egg roulette and more than a few egg-cellent puns in Swaton, Lincolnshire.
Dive into the World Bog Snorkelling Championships with Ben in this wet and wild edition of National Wonders.
Join Ben on his quest through Hallaton, Leicestershire as he takes on three beer kegs, two rival villages and one very large pie.
Venture to the Cornish town of Padstow with Ben to get a glimpse of some 'osses' and investigate a pregnant maiden.
Watch Ben head to Olney, where he finds wigs, firemen, a transatlantic rivalry... and the odd pancake or two.
See Ben try his first battle cry, admire beards and even get up close and personal with some weaponry.
Get the latest updates on Ben's adventures with National Wonders, as well as plenty of travel inspiration, scenic views, cityscapes and more...
