A Bit About Britain

A Bit About Britain. I didn’t know about this website until recently and I am happy to have discovered it. If you are an Anglophile and like reading about all sorts of places to visit, historical narratives, photos and stories of pubs and generally all things British – check out this site.


To use their words, it is a proclaimed portal into Britain’s heritage and attractions  with countless articles that will keep you going for hours. It makes me want to travel, as usual, but it’s the armchair travel for me at this time. One day.

Take this article – Why 467 Pubs are called The Royal Oak

“What might be called ‘the Royal Oak Incident’ took place when the future King Charles II hid in an oak tree after the Battle of Worcester in 1651. This was a real event, which might have had a very different outcome, and is a fascinating story. You can visit the spot where it happened, Boscobel House in Shropshire “

For history timelines, King and Queens, fabulous photography and inspiration please do check out this fabulous site.  I could start a notebook listing places I’d like to visit while perusing this site.
