IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME com­ing, and our gar­dens and open coun­try­side have had to en­dure some late-sea­son shocks, but sum­mer is def­i­nitely around the cor­ner! There’s an op­ti­mistic buzz in the air and, in this is­sue, we hope to show you why. Harry and Meghan’s spe­cial day will ob­vi­ously be a high­light and the eyes of the world will be on the his­toric Royal Bor­ough of Wind­sor (p34). There’s a brief in­tro­duc­tion to royal eti­quette (p46) and we fea­ture lead­ing hotels with themed pack­ages on of­fer (p42). Our ‘Made in Bri­tain’ her­itage is fur­ther cel­e­brated with re­views of tra­di­tional boat-build­ing (p88) and some of our an­cient and sen­sa­tional cathe­drals (p52) as well as a peek into the scan­dalous Ge­or­gian world of Lady Elizabeth Lamb (p30). Don’t ig­nore the plethora of food fes­ti­vals (p67) around the UK – first-class fare and proud of it! Plan­ning a visit, long or short? We fo­cus on the fas­ci­nat­ing Isle of Wight (p62), the slum­ber­ing Vale of Ayles­bury (p38) and the be­guil­ingly beau­ti­ful Isles of Scilly (p74), while tick­ling your fancy with a night at Kent’s his­toric Hever Cas­tle (p83), a hike along the Pen­nine Way (p48) and some quirky, less well-known at­trac­tions in the cap­i­tal (p24). On p12, you will find our cul­tural di­ary is full of the prom­ise of artis­tic plea­sure and, in our reg­u­lar fea­tures, we bring you up-to-the-minute travel news and sug­ges­tions (pp7,96) and our pick of the lat­est on the UK fash­ion scene (p21) and lead­ing brands (p94).
