England Travels Stories and Pictures of England

Holidays and loads of photos go hand in hand. So do holidays and wonderful memories. And travel stories are some of the most interesting stories of all ...

Here is where they all come together: on a page of travel stories and pictures of England.

Over the years we've visited many parts of England and we've seen many sights that have surprised us.

We've also collected many lasting memories, things that make you go "...do you remember?" before you go and dig out the photos once again.

Quite a few of these I've shared on this website, in the hope that they might help others turn their England holiday into the trip of a lifetime.

I find England wonderfully 'picturesque' and am always curious to learn what other people find worth taking photos of (and why!). I also love to hear their stories of discovery: people they've met, sights they've seen, locations they've explored.

My albums contain many pictures of England: collections of sunsets, misty mornings, beaches, empty hillsides, ruined castles, tranquil riversides and even snow! My diaries speak of unusual people, tiny pubs, shepherd's and bakers, lucky finds and lucky escapes, sad stories and funny ones ...

Our visits to North Norfolk usually bring a good haul of images, but - in my (photo) book - this last evening walk before coming back takes the honours.

England's Most Photographed Ruin
