"That England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are amazing, varied countries is not in doubt, though we are all guilty of not knowing our own back yard well enough, or of taking it for granted.
The Times Atlas of Britain is a perfect mirror to the dazzling spectrum of possibility that our islands offer: like the country itself, it is big, beautiful and full of things to make you stop in wonder."
Mike Parker (author of Map Addict)
