Given that it had a civil war and was able to overthrow the rulers of the day, it's not just been close, it's had one.

Technically two if you consider the return to status quo later on.

The English Civil War of the 17th century is also considered to have had a revolutionary outcome.

Twice at least- 1649 and 1688. You could argue a case for 1066 or some of the changes in monarchy during the Wars of the Roses.

People don’t acknowledge how 1832 was close to becoming a revolution. Read about the “Days of May” in 1832 after the several rejections of the Great Reform Bill

Because I have to make my EPQ quite precise, I was thinking of the Chartist movement, the 1926 general strike, the British Union of Fascists, Peterloo massacre etc.
