Secret Britain

Stonehenge, Westminster Cathedral, Bath… these well-known English sites are certainly worth a visit, but the scepter'd isle across the Pond is also home to a wealth of fascinating locales that rarely show up in travel guides. Devoted history buffs and Anglophiles willing to wander off the beaten path will be enchanted by the little-known architectural, historical, and natural treasures revealed in Secret Britain, including Merlin's Cave in Tintagel, Cornwall; a secluded Dorset beach frequented by Virginia Woolf; London's Lock & Co., hatmakers to Admiral Nelson and Charlie Chaplin; the Yorkshire village of Saltaire, built to provide decent housing for nineteenth-century industrial workers (a revolutionary idea at the time); and the Begwyns of Wales, a birder's paradise with spectacular sweeping views. Grab your passport—or simply settle back in your comfiest chair with a hot cuppa or a cool pint— and explore "the best of Britain's hidden gems." (KG)
