Britain has a wonderful range of beautiful landscapes and coasts to explore. From the rugged mountains and windswept isles of Scotland to the heaths and downs of southern England, via the Pennines, Lake District, and woodlands and waterfalls of Wales, there is something to inspire everyone to explore for a summer holiday, weekend away or excursion at any time of year. Here we take a tour - in stills and video clips - of not just Britain but the United Kingdom, running from Cornwall north through the English counties, on to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, and we've also stretched a point and included the Channel Islands!
