When was the last time that Britain was successfully invaded and conquered?
Britain was never conquered or invaded. It did not come into existence as a country until 1707, with The Act of Union with Scotland. It was invaded in 1745 by Prince Charles Edward Stuart but he was not successful. There was an invasion by the French around the end of the eighteenth century. They did not get very far either.
The Channel Islands were occupied by the Germans in World War Two. That was the only part of the country that was invaded in that conflict.
The famous Norman invasion of 1066 was only of England. Scotland was not invaded then.
Well the Normans invaded England in 1066 and eventually conquered that part of Britain. They then conquered Wales in the 13th Century. Through intermarriage, Scotland became united with England and Wales in the 17th Century. So it took a long time to invade, conquer, and eventually unite the whole island under a single monarch.
Both Old Empresario and christopheranton are right in a way but assuming that the question did actually mean England then the answer is 1688 when William of Orange invaded with a Dutch fleet. But quite right, Britain was invaded during the second world war if only on the Channel Islands. It's a great myth of ours that we haven't been invaded for a thousand years.
