England's views are remarkable for their beauty and variety. In this illustrated, first-of-its-kind guide, bestselling author Simon Jenkins picks the very best views from the heart of England, including Broadway Tower, Chipping Campden, Clee Hill, Ironbridge Gorge, Malverns, Tyndale Monument, Chatsworth, Kinder Downfall, and more – and explains the fascinating stories behind them. Jenkins' entertaining and erudite entries provide the rich historical, geographical, botanical and architectural background to the Midlands' breathtaking sights both iconic and undiscovered.

Filled with roman roads, cliff-tops, follies, mountains, ancient castles, rolling forests and heart-stopping moments, you'll soon wonder how you chose walks, mini-breaks or spontaneous diversions without it.
