Join us for another travel special, which this issue takes us to the bucolic and historic Heart of England
This issue, we take a tour of the Heart of England – a region that includes the counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Shropshire,
and, of course, Shakespeare Country in Warwickshire
First up, we take a tour of the little-known but unbelievably beautiful county of Herefordshire, which could well be England’s best-kept secret, and Lara Dunn takes us on a culinary tour of the Heart of England sharing some of its food stories, including mushy peas and world famous cheese.
Elsewhere in the issue, and as Valentine’s Day approaches, Nancy Alsop reflects on some of the most memorable Tudor love stories (not all of which ended in beheadings) and, if you’re looking for some spring travel inspiration, our editor Sally Coffey visits a favourite spot in Pembrokeshire for welly walks, coastal views, open fires, and a cosy-cottage stay.
Plus, you could be in with a chance of winning a luxury stay in Shakespeare country!
