Your September/October issue is now on sale!

From the Scottish Highlands to central London, tiny historic dolls’ houses to the grandest stately homes in Britain, this issue balances the best our nation has to offer

In the dark days of spring it was difficult to predict what would become of the places that make a visit to Britain so special – the stately homes and tearooms, the quaint hotels and the world-class museums. Happily, as I write, Britain is welcoming visitors once more.

If you’re planning a joyful return to our shores in 2021, this issue is packed with inspiration. Seeking scenic seclusion? Discover Tresco, a jewel-like island off the Cornwall coast, in our pages – it won’t disappoint. Timeless trails and rural charm? Stride beside us along the ancient Ridgeway, which offers both in abundance. A medieval city to explore? Look no further than our city guide to Lincoln.
