Step into summer with our new issue, as we celebrate the much anticipated unveiling of Big Ben’s new look, and take a trip down the Thames to Richmond and Hampton Court Palace
Our new issue is here! And there’s much excitement in the air as time is up on the five-year restoration of Big Ben, and we delve into the history of Britain’s most iconic landmark.
We’re also time-travelling back to the glory days of another iconic London landmark, and Henry VIII’s favourite residence, Hampton Court Palace, which stands on a scenic stretch of the Thames: Richmond’s bustling riverside. King Henry VIII makes another appearance in this issue’s history piece as we mark the 500th anniversary of his meeting Anne Boleyn for the very first time in 1522, and we take a closer look at her rise and oh-so famous downfall.
In need of some last-minute summer travel inspiration? We’re following the King Arthur trail through the romantic landscapes of North Cornwall, from mystical Tintagel and its ruined castle, to the wilds of Bodmin Moor, where tales of the legendary king still linger…but are they truth or fairytale?
Plus, you could be in with a chance of winning a two-night stay in the Scottish Highlands!
