Due to the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak we are temporarily renaming our website from Travel About Britain to "Stay At Home Britain".
We urge all our readers to act responsibly and follow the latest Government Guidelines regarding Self Isolation and Social Distancing. Please stay safe and only use our website to enjoy the sights and beauty of Britain from the comfort of you own home. Do not travel unless absolutely necessary.
You are welcome to browse the site for information on towns and cities, local history, British heritage, popular places to visit and local attractions. Click on an area of the map or use the links below to begin your tour.
If you are self isolating why not try a Google Virtual Reality Tour of one of our attractions or museums. My absolute favourite is the British Museum.
