England's views are remarkable for their beauty and variety. In this illustrated, first-of-its-kind guide, bestselling author Simon Jenkins picks the very best views from North East England, including Bempton cliffs, Gordale Scar, Hebden Bridge, Richmond, Rievaulx, Saltaire, Whitby Harbour, Durham, Hadrian's Wall, Lindisfarne and Newcastle's Grey Street, and more - and explains the fascinating stories behind them. Jenkins' entertaining and erudite entries provide the rich historical, geographical, botanical and architectural background to North East England's breathtaking sights both iconic and undiscovered.
Filled with roman roads, cliff-tops, follies, mountains, ancient castles, rolling forests and heart-stopping moments, you'll soon wonder how you chose walks, mini-breaks or spontaneous diversions without it.
