In order to gain an authentic insight into what makes Britain really great then you need look no further than this stunning new book.

Images of Britain is a beautiful and evocative look at our island - a plethora of breathtaking photographs, illustrating just how magnificent it really is.

Providing a true appreciation of the wealth and splendour that is on offer, flicking through Images of Britain leaves one almost immediately compelled to take off and experience it all at first hand. Forget the piazzas of Rome, the rolling hills of Tuscany and the golden beaches of the Riviera. Glorious, wonderful heritage, stunning scenery and bustling contemporary cityscapes are all here on our doorstep, ready to be savoured and loved.

Over 250 unique full colour pictures, many taken by prize winning photographers, have been exclusively selected from VisitBritain's own online image library, Britain on View, and range from stunning double page panoramas to exquisite close cropped detail, each capturing something of our country's glorious heritage and the unique spirit of its people.

Covering the length and breadth of England, Scotland and Wales, Images of Britain not only encapsulates the unique, unparalleled beauty and vibrancy of each nation but also the common features that bind Britain together.

Imaginatively divided into 8 sections, each celebrating Britain in its various incarnations (Iconic Britain - Historic Britain - Coastal Britain - Landscape Britain - Stately Britain - Rural Britain - Metro Britain - Living Britain) there is also a very handy gazetteer that provides essential visitor information and contact details of several places featured.

Images of Britain is as neat and nifty in its format as it is splendid in content, it's small yet robust thus making it an inspiring travel companion, ideal gift book or perfect to browse and revisit your favourite places.
