Overview

In this lavishly illustrated book you can embark on a journey through Great Britain in past times.

Superb photographs from The Francis Frith Collection, rich in period detail and arranged region by region, will bring you a fascinating portrait of Britain as it was in years gone by. They are accompanied by quotations from writers, poets and travellers down the ages. Photographs and text combine to capture the rich diversity of Britain's unique history and heritage.

See the countryside of Great Britain in all its remarkable variety — the Norfolk Broads, the Derbyshire Dales, the north Devon coast, the Yorkshire Dales, the Cotswolds, and the Wye valley at Tintern. Visit them as they were before the motor car arrived and mass tourism altered them forever.

Tour the ancient and mysterious sites of Britain, including Stonehenge and Tintagel; visit the places in Britain that have helped shape its long and enthralling history — Hastings, where the Normans conquered Harold's army, Portsmouth, with its proud naval heritage, and the ancient castles of Pembroke, Stirling and Caernarfon; see magnificent cathedrals and abbeys, and visit great houses and estates, including Windsor Castle and Balmoral.

Tour some of Britain's most celebrated cities — London, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Belfast; walk the medieval streets of Chester, Shrewsbury and York; and enjoy vistas of graceful Georgian squares and promenades at Cheltenham and Harrogate.

Glimpse the delights of the traditional British seaside holiday, with scenes of fun on the sands at Brighton, Blackpool, Southwold, and Rothesay.

Revisit, too, Britain's industrial heartland as it was in Victorian times. See the bustling industrial cities of Liverpool and Manchester; marvel at feats of engineering that have marked British industrial genius at home and overseas, including the Forth and Menai bridges. This colourful book, full of atmospheric illustrations, is a refreshing celebration of Britain, and will bring you insights into its people, places, and history.

    Even for a Brit a good buy

    I just really bought this book for a coffee table addition, but was pleasantly surprised when I read it, as there were quite a few villages/ towns where I had gone on field trips with my school a thousand years ago.But it is also great to show my sons, who may one day want to see some of the old family places.So I found this book a great joy.
