Indulge in the romance of spring with the Brontës and blossom-filled gardens

With the season of blossom and birdsong in sight, this issue we’re visiting Britain’s most heart-stirring locations. We travel to the wild moors and quaint villages beloved of literature’s most famous sisters, the Brontës, and swoon at the enchanting scenery of Wales’s Gower peninsula.

Meanwhile, as the country looks forward to Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this summer, this issue we touch on the lives of two great queens of the past. We look back at the dazzling love story of Victoria and her beloved Albert, which can be traced through the jewels they bestowed upon each other. And we delve into the life and formidable mind of another iconic sovereign, Elizabeth I.
