Giants Causeway - Ireland

The Giants Causeway was given UNESCO heritage listing in 1986, and is the only UNESCO heritage site in Northern Ireland. The unique natural phenomenon is assumed to have been created 50-60million years ago, as a result of volcanic activity in the area. There are over 40,000 columns in total, all hexagonal in shape, and locking together like a jigsaw.
