Well Britain is pretty good for castles and cathedrals. We also speak a version of English. It's safe too.
London is a good starting point -
St Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Westminster Cathedral and lots of great churches,
Her Majesty's Palace and Fortress (the Tower of London), Windsor Castle close by as is Hampton Court Palace
Camden Market, Portobello Market.
and one or two other things too
Agree that Great Britain might be the place for you. Check out Travelodge for great supersaver rates.
Thanks for the input. My wife reminds me we were in London in 2008( We loved it especially the Thames River cruise and Portobello market). How about your suggestions for other parts of the country?

My husband and I just came back from a 13 day escorted tour of Turkey. The price was $1299.00 each including air from JFK (New York). The trip is much less booked "Land Only". Gate1Travel. We had a big Mercedes comfortable bus. A tour guide who was very knowledgeable. Wonderful hotels...one a 5 star. The 31 travelers with us were an eclectic mix including lots of young people, which made the trip even better. There is no way we could have even booked the hotels for the price we paid. Did I mention most of the meals were included and good? Please check their web site and see if there isn't something that you and your wife might like. Jane547
Many thanks for your suggestion,I'll check it out
I would try the Republic of Ireland. There are castles, cairns and ring forts to explore. I stayed in B & Bs and traveled by bus and train. Make your train reservations online ahead of time and you can save quite a few bucks.
We just returned from Gate 1's Affordable Turkey tour (Feb 4-18) during which we had a great time. The sites visited were amazing and the commentary provided us leading up to and at each site by our guide, Ender, made each visit much more meaningful than had we tried to visit them on our own. The tour was masterfully orchestrated by Ender and all hotels and food included on the tour were equal to or better than that provided by other more expensive tour groups we have used in the past. In fact, Gate1 has many great deals for European travels that are very reasonably priced. www.gate1travel.com
