Overview

This book records and celebrates some of the very best of England, Wales and Scotland from Edinburgh to St. Ives and Snowdonia to Dover Castle. In its pages you will find images that reflect the extreme beauty of well-loved areas such as the Lake District and the Cotswolds, the wild grandeur of the Scottish Highlands and the moorland tops of England and Wales, as well as towns and villages that colour the landscape. Its photos capture the intensity of this country's history through majestic cathedrals, castles, mansions, and the humour of its people as they holiday by the sea, enjoy sporting events and relish their own absurdity.

You'll also find iconic images here, ancient and modern, from the famous White Cliffs of the south to the Angel of the North, and Big Ben to the glass tower they labeled the Gherkin.

Special fold-out sections make the most of fabulous photography, showing the British at play, the city of the Beatles, the remarkable revival of a northern industrial town, and a peaceful Scottish island that has been discovered by a new generation of fans since its starring role in a children's TV programme.
