Late medieval is a bit boring as not a lot happened in the 1300s and 1400s. Generally people were OK because the plague killed everyone off, so wages rose and everyone was happy, also we were constantly at war with France so there wasn't much going on at home. Even the Wars of the Roses I find a bit boring tbh. There were a couple of peasants' revolts but basically meh. However I find the 1100s and 1200s a bit more interesting for some reason, there were some pretty gnarly civil wars and power struggles and it seems a bit more raw. Going back further the Saxons and the unification of England were pretty awesome.
Equally not a whole lot happened under the Hanoverians except Napoleon, and really that's a story about the rest of Europe. We had the balance of power shifting towards Parliament but the Hanoverians were pretty chill about the whole thing so not that interesting. Then Victorian and later had a fair bit of stuff going on but is too recent to really feel like proper history.
