THE LAST DAYS of win­ter are pass­ing and time is bet­ter spent look­ing for­wards. We show­case and high­light just a few of the won­ders await­ing dis­cov­ery in the com­ing months, all around this beau­ti­ful coun­try. In this is­sue, we turn our at­ten­tion to the iconic Knights­bridge store, Har­vey Ni­chols (p46), look at the trans­for­ma­tion of Went­worth, in Sur­rey, into one of the world’s lead­ing golf and coun­try clubs (p24), and dine at Duck and Waf­fle, on top of Heron Tower (p98). If you are plan­ning a wed­ding or look­ing for an ex­clu­sive venue you will be spoilt for choice in our se­lec­tion of out­stand­ing prop­er­ties for your stay, or spe­cial day (p50) and our fea­ture on mod­ern Bri­tish jew­ellers may in­spire your part­ner and bring last­ing mem­o­ries (p28). Wish­ing to in­spire you to look out­side Lon­don and the most ob­vi­ous tourist at­trac­tions, we re­view the other-worldly de­lights of glo­ri­ous Guernsey, the sec­ond-largest of the Chan­nel Is­lands (p78) and the bu­colic peace of the Cotswolds (p86). Scot­land’s cap­i­tal, Ed­in­burgh, cel­e­brates the 70th an­niver­sary of its fa­mous arts fes­ti­val and now hosts a va­ri­ety of great events, through­out the year (p62). One of Bri­tain’s most mag­netic at­trac­tions, The Royal Yacht Bri­tan­nia, is per­ma­nently berthed, close to the city, at Leith and our re­view gives a tan­ta­lis­ing taste of what a vis­i­tor will find there (p74). And on a more cul­tural note, we asked the cu­ra­tors of our best mu­se­ums to choose their favourite ex­hibits (p32) and bring you our reg­u­lar fea­tures on out­stand­ing shows, ex­hi­bi­tions and theatre (p13). Show­cas­ing the very best of Bri­tain again this spring. Hope you en­joy!
