Britain at its Best - Today in the UK
Information Britain takes you from the Scilly Isles to Rockall, from Caesar landing to this week, with the option of 1,000,000 stops in between. We have everything you would expect: the best places to stay, events, town guides, attractions... and loads you wouldn't: history, trivia, British institutions, and some downright weird stuff. Make the most of your trips by learning about Beauty Spots, local ghost-stories; food (and drink!), folklore, legends. Britain is a travellers' treasure-house; Information Britain knows where all the gems are tucked away, and helps you dig them out with maps and pictures.
