About This Book

Britain’s history is rich in mystery and scandal, and our ancient buildings hide the fascinating stories. Hidden Britain takes you backstage at some of our country’s most intriguing locations, into secret tunnels, down concealed passageways and behind the scenes at historic houses, castles and churches. This is the side of Britain’s heritage normally kept behind closed doors – with stories of Charles II’s escape from Worcester, the ghastly chamber of Glamis Castle and the labyrinth of tunnels under the streets of Nottingham. What do we know about these mysterious places? What is real and what is simply myth? In many cases no one alive knows, and that is what makes a visit to these sites so thrilling. With a comprehensive section of places to stay and visit, this beautifully illustrated book is an indispensable companion to the hidden gems of our history.
