Our Regions

  1. London
    London is the cosmopolitan hub of Great Britain. Look under the surface for stories of kings & queens, ambitious politicians, artists, musicians, sailors and philosophers. Visit palaces, castles and historic houses where they lived and worked to understand what makes the nation tick.
  2. Scotland
    Come & visit Scotland in its Year of History, Heritage & Archaeology. Discover its rich history for yourself at the region’s many castles, palaces and exceptional gardens.
  3. Wales

  4. Northern Ireland
    A beautiful and undervalued part of the country, Northern Ireland is easy to get to from the mainland, small enough to explore and packed with historic places that will help you understand its unique history.
  5. North East England
    The lands either side of Hadrian’s Wall are full of castles and the legacy of industrial wealth. From the Romans to the present day, houses, castles and gardens will show its distinctive history and culture.
  6. North West England
    The English Lakes are famous as a holiday destination but your efforts to go a little further into less frequented parts of Cumbria and Lancashire will be well rewarded.
  7. Yorkshire and the Humber
    Yorkshire has more than its fair share of historic places to visit and since Hull is the UK's City of Culture this year, you may find yourself crossing the Humber Bridge into little visited East Yorkshire. Don't miss Yorkshire's treasure houses, particulary Castle Howard and Harewood House, but make time for some of the region's wide variety of heritage places and gardens.
  8. East Midlands
    The East Midlands boasts some of Britain's finest stately homes and great estates. Escape to the country in Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire

  10. East of England
    Explore the East of England from Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, North of London through Essex to the big skies of Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.
  11. South East England
    The counties to the South & East of the capital are rich in stories from the past. History makers like Marlborough, Wellington and Churchill made their homes here but so did country squires and Tudor merchants, great nobles and great gardeners.
  12. South West England
    From Poldark in Cornwall to Hardy in Wessex, there is plenty of romance in the South West. The airy gothic villas of Devon and Cornwall, Tudor mansions of Gloucestershire and stunning gardens of Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset make this a region to find your own secret places.
