WE’VE BEEN BASK­ING IN a bril­liant spell of early­sum­mer weather and, if fore­casts can be be­lieved, should look for­ward to even more! In this is­sue, we show­case the best hos­pi­tal­ity that Bri­tain can of­fer, whether you are vis­it­ing from overseas or sim­ply en­joy­ing a ‘stay­ca­tion’, and of­fer a unique pic­ture of some facets of UK life, some of which may sur­prise you. Our pop­u­lar ‘Made in Bri­tain’ ar­ti­cle fea­tures the re­vival of the Bri­tish watch­mak­ing in­dus­try (p26), we take a peek in­side the se­cre­tive world of mem­bers-only club­land (p32) and we are proud to in­tro­duce op­por­tu­ni­ties to cel­e­brate the cen­te­nary of our Royal Air Force (p88). The wide range of Bri­tish ho­tels is am­ply il­lus­trated, from his­toric/her­itage des­ti­na­tions in me­dieval cas­tles and grand coun­try houses (p48), charm­ing towns and fas­ci­nat­ing cities (p81) and Vic­to­rian sea­side plea­sure-palaces (p76) to se­cret hide­aways on some of the many glo­ri­ous is­lands dot­ted around our shores (p56). Our travel em­po­rium (p96) and news sec­tion (p7) bring you the lat­est snip­pets of in­ter­est, we in­ter­view the man re­spon­si­ble for the culi­nary de­lights to be en­joyed on RY Bri­tan­nia (p98) and we high­light ho­tels with dis­tinct lit­er­ary con­nec­tions (p68) and some lo­ca­tions which have found fame on the big screen (p60). We turn our par­tic­u­lar at­ten­tion to the world-fa­mous glo­ries to be dis­cov­ered in and around Dorset (p72) and the sen­sa­tional range of travel at­trac­tions to be ex­pe­ri­enced on the Isle of Man (p90). We have cho­sen the best from the ex­plo­sion of lit­er­ary festivals, all around UK, (p42) and, with our reg­u­lar fea­tures on the lat­est shows and ex­hi­bi­tions, travel news, prop­erty and style trends, we hope you will be en­ter­tained!
