May I humbly suggest you peruse three guides I have compiled for Countryfile magazine.

Celebrate the Royal Wedding (or possibly the fact that it’s over) with my guide to ten ways to be quintessentially British this Spring. Slap on a straw hat and grab a picnic basket and indulge in the joys of afternoon tea, punting and a spot of tennis.

Fancy getting greener fingers? The UK has some fantastic gardening courses on offer, teaching everything from making intricate Japanese arrangements to compost heaps. If you’re more the window-box herb type, a course is also a fantastic present for a garden-mad relative.

Finally, who said public transport was dull? My guide to the top ten scenic routes in Britain redefine getting from A-B: stunning backdrops of Scottish lochs from a train window, trams to secret gardens and buses along the Giant’s Causeway make the journey just as special as the destination.
