Some people are impossible to impress. Imagine a person who looks at a 5,000-year-old monument and downplays it as a pile of rocks. Or someone who goes to a castle that was originally built in 1068 and calls it a 'Disneyland wannabe'.

They shouldn't be allowed to visit the United Kingdom. But they're not only traveling to the country, they're trashing it public on Tripadvisor, leaving one-star reviews to some of the world's top attractions.

I just hope they're doing it as a joke, otherwise we have to call the Queen and tell her she needs to sign a few deportation papers ASAP!

The United Kingdom is the 10th biggest tourist destination in the world, with over 37 million visiting the country in 2018. The tourism industry contributed to £213 ($284) billion to the country's GDP in 2017, and this number is expected to grow to £265 ($353) billion by 2028.

Tripadvisor itself describes it as "a country filled with epic landscapes, fairy-tales castles and vibrant modern cities bursting with unforgettable experiences to share. Whether it's gazing at the London skyline from the top of iconic St Paul's and sipping the finest single malt whisky in a pub in the Scottish Highlands, or tracing footsteps of Banksy in Bristol, discovering musical legends in Liverpool and exploring the history of Cardiff Castle in the stunning heart of Wales, there’s a Britain that’s perfect for you."

But don't worry even if you visit the UK just for one night and the only place you go to is the pub. British people tend to find humor everywhere, including dark or bad situations. However, they often use sarcasm and take the occasional stab at someone else’s expense, so it's important not to take these jokes to heart as they are only meant in jest.

To even suggest knocking down Stonehenge for an arcade is unthinkable. But if you're going to replace it with Funfair, I'm in!

A bit over embellished about risking your life having that photo taken. It is a pedestrian crossing and cars are meant to give way.

I feel like people who don't have an interest in history maybe shouldn't visit historical places. Although this person didn't even like the view so perhaps they're having a problem with their brain being missing.

I was there a few years ago and I was indeed very excited. I didn't want to leave! They even had an archery workshop, I was like a 10 year old kid! But I guess history and amazing fortresses are not for everyone. I thank my lucky stars for not being ignorant

I almost died walking up to that castle. I had to PERSEVERE to get to that castle. That is a special castle. However, if you're doing a tour, seen one castle, seen 'em all. Noted the thin, steep stairs. People must have been very small way back.

Actually I've been and I thought it was overpriced and not very interesting. The rooms were empty when I was there, and there are hilarious cartoon cut outs placed in dioramas. Really the most impressive part of the castle is the view up to it. I'd recommend visiting another more ornamental castle instead.

Do any of these people actually know the history of Stonehenge or do they just think it’s a pile of rocks? Also on a side note, do they offer helicopter tours that fly over Stonehenge? You can see what it is better from an aerial view.
