Welcome to Britain celebrated by poets and writers.

Richard II, Act 2, Scene 1: William Shakespeare

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea...

Come and explore this land of Shakespeare, Burns, Milton, Shelley, Keats, Tennyson, Thomas and Wordsworth. A land of extraordinary beauty and variety with unique cultural and historic heritages on display in its cities, towns and villages, and its museums, palaces, castles, cathedrals, stately homes, and industrial landscapes.

Historic Property: Wentworth Place. " see if this will assist in dismissing you from my mind for ever so short a time. Upon my soul, I can think of nothing else. ... I cannot exist without you. I am forgetful of everything but seeing you again my life seems to stop there I see no further. You have absorb'd me." So wrote Keats to the love of his life, Fanny Brawne, in 1819, his neighbour at Wentworth Place.
