Thomas Harold Watson Profile

Hello, my name is Thomas Harold Watson and I am on a journey to visit every (Tentative and) World Heritage Site on the planet…properly. I don’t just visit the best part(s) of it and leave, I stay (or return) for however long it takes until I have completely completed it before ticking it off. I plan on eventually posting more content of my travels to my YouTube account so I’d really appreciate any subscriptions, likes and comments, and I also occasional share pictures on my Instagram, so feel free to follow me there too. 

It is so nice to be part of such an amazing community of UNESCO lovers. With all of your help you have made my visits so much better and fulfilled, I just hope that my reviews can help everyone else here as much as they’ve helped me.

Le Panorama de la Bataille de Waterloo, exemple particulièrement significatif de « Phénomène de Panoramas » (T)

Thomas Harold Watson United Kingdom - 12-Apr-22

Really cool to visit but believe that it should really be included in the Le champ de bataille de Waterloo tentative site, having both as separate ones in exactly the same seems like a long shot.

I have never stepped into a 360° panoramic picture before and upon visiting I was really impressed with it. It makes you feel like you’ve just jumped back centuries and was easily one of my highlights to Waterloo.

Le champ de bataille de Waterloo, la fin de l’épopée napoléonienne (T)

Le champ de bataille de Waterloo, la fin de l’épopée napoléonienne (T)

The French won’t like it one bit if this doesn’t be becomes a world heritage site (they even had it blocked from being on a two euro coin…although Belgium did make a 2.5 euro coin successfully afterwards), but it truly hope it does. This battle changed the history of the world and surely that is exactly what UNESCO is meant to preserve! 

I was on route to Brussels when I accidentally came across this location, it is so impressive and impossible to miss if anywhere near. An extremely GIANT mound with an impressive lion on top.

Christiansfeld

Thomas Harold Watson United Kingdom - 01-May-20

Christiansfeld

I wasn’t meant to visit Christiansfeld on the day that I went as I only planned on seeing the Jelling Mounds, but as I had a lot of time to spare anyway I just jumped on a couple of busses and went.

There was nothing truly remarkable about the town, but it did feel like I had taken a little step back in history (maybe a couple of hundred years). But the lack of information boards, visitor centres or even a timetable at the church were definitely let downs. I was lucky enough to find a random guy in the street who strangely enough had the key for the building to let me in and around, but not everyone will be this lucky!

Stoclet House

Thomas Harold Watson United Kingdom - 30-Apr-20

Stoclet House

I was extremely disappointed with this site. I do not understand why it got a WHS status. 
Due to it being a private residence no visitors except friends and family of the people that live there can visit. There are no special days to visit. There is not even a sign. It is an ordinary house, surrounded by high fences and gates to keep people out. 

I tried the front doors but nobody was in, so I’m guessing whoever lives here rarely even uses it to live in, as all of the lights were also off.

Jodrell Bank Observatory

Thomas Harold Watson United Kingdom - 30-Apr-20

Jodrell Bank Observatory

I was impressed and disappointed with this site at the same time. I will start with my negative points and then move onto the nicer stuff afterwards.

You can not go up, on or in the Lovell telescope. I wouldn’t normally “tick” something off my list unless I’ve truly experienced it 100%, but according to the staff there this would never be a possibility as it is still in use, and the only people allowed on it are the people that work on it. I feel that if this is the case they should have picked a different observatory that allows visitors, even if it meant charging a lot and pre-booking well  in advance.
