Issue 228 is now on sale

    Join us for a regency romance in the historic city of Bath, a celebration of Beatrix Potter, whose legacy extends far beyond writing and drawing, and get the inside scoop on life inside the big house at Castle Howard

    Welcome to the June/July issue of Discover Britain! In this issue we’ve fallen in love with historic Bath as our editor explores the pretty southwest city and its magnificent Georgian architecture, in particular the filming locations that feature on screen in both the Regency-set smash hit show, Bridgerton, and a forthcoming adaptation of Jane Austen’s Persuasion.

    One Georgian building that also has a cameo in Bridgerton is Castle Howard – a magnificent stately home, just outside York. This baroque masterpiece is beautiful inside and out and in this issue, writer Eleanor Doughty gets the inside scoop on life inside the big house from the chatelaine, Vicky Howard.

    Our editor also took her children to the V & A to see the new Beatrix Potter exhibition, and in our article you can read all about her extraordinary life and achievements, which go far beyond writing and drawing.

    Plus, would you like the chance to stay in five-star luxury in London, taking in the capital’s most famous sights? How about a trip to the quaint villages and rolling hills of the Cotswolds? Or even a visit to Edinburgh, Scotland’s stunning capital? You can win all of this and more in our fantastic Great British Holiday competition.
