Discover #OMGB moments: Countryside


Britain’s coast and countryside is packed with amazing moments. From watching the sunrise over ancient castles to zooming along hedge-lined country lanes in a classic car, you couldn’t be anywhere but Britain. Where else can you follow in the footsteps of Roman soldiers on what was the northern frontier of the Roman Empire, or relax by the still waters of a lake that may be home to a monster? It’s moments like these that will make the stories you’ll tell your family and friends about Britain’s coast and countryside so extraordinary.
