Roman Baths, Bath, England During the 44th annual session, The World Heritage Committee has made a few changes to the World Heritage Site List affecting British constituents.

“Bridgerton” is not just a Netflix smash – it is their biggest smash yet! The raunchy period drama which has appealed to both younger and more mature audiences alike has enjoyed record breaking viewing figures for its first 28 days online and has hit Netflix’s number one spot in no fewer than 83 countries. The plot has healthy servings of all the right ingredients for any televisual success; romance, mystery, intrigue and plenty of drama. However the storyline is just one aspect of the show’s success – set in an alternative history of the opulent balls and banquets of high-society Georgian England, the action takes place against a stunning array of backdrops, including Regency terrace streets, opulent manor houses and…

May is a beautiful month; with warmer and longer days it is a great time for outdoor activities. To celebrate the beginnings of the summer, many concerts, festivals and shows are organised all over the country. As things return to normal here in Britain, we must be patient and accept that this year’s events are going to look a little bit different than what we’re normally used to. However, although changes in dates, limited tickets and greater hygiene measures are to be expected these days, we’ll still be able to attend some of our favourite events in 2021 and enjoy time outside. One such event will be the exceptionally colourful and fragrant Chelsea Flower Show! For those who have never…

Spring has finally arrived in the UK. With warm sunshine, flocks of birds migrating back from across the Equator and many animals waking up from winter hibernation, my mind always drifts away to places where the nature remains completely intact. Away from its many bustling cities, Britain's thriving wildlife can luckily find a peaceful home in no fewer than 46 (!) Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and in 15 additional National Parks. With minor differences in management, promotion and purposes between AONBs and NPs, landscapes of both are equally enchanting; endless horizons of varying terrain, tranquil atmosphere and breath-taking panoramas – nature in its purest form! Flora and fauna of several species live in protected and looked-after areas of National…

So much of Britain’s, and the world’s modern identity can be attributed to the prosperous Roman Empire; the remnants of which are now scattered throughout the UK. Huge areas of what we now know as Britain were once governed by the empire for a near 400 years, leaving in its wake a plethora of historical artefacts, precious relics and complex architectural designs, all of which make for fascinating visits. Below is a complied list of the must visit Roman remains in the UK. Roman Baths, Bath In terms of lasting influence, few places in Britain have a stronger identity than the city of Bath; hence its namesake.
