Curl up with the new issue of BRITAIN and indulge in some nostalgic train travel and spooky tales
This issue, we’re embracing the best wintry pursuits that Britain has to offer: cosy up in a vintage train, enjoying the country’s most scenic landscapes from the comfort of your carriage; tour the castles of County Durham, at their most impressively forbidding in the winter months; and explore the ancient streets of London, where the ghosts of ages past still lurk in the shadows.
History buffs are in for a treat too. In the first of a two-part series we delve into Elizabeth I’s eventful childhood and the precocious political games she learned from an early age. We also tell the little-known tale of Britain’s last invasion – centuries after 1066.
