We'd like to welcome you to Plus 44 (this is the U.K. international dialling code) Window Into Britain. It has been a lot of work and many thanks to everybody involved. The site is basically a tour guide of Britain with a town index and a county by county attraction guide.
The idea was to create an online 'postcard book' of different heritage sites in Britain. The majority of pictures in this guide where taken in a manic four day journey around England at the end of the blisteringly hot summer of 1997. It was an unusual week in that people taking photographs were not too popular. That is the disgraceful looking vehicle outside the house of Shakespearežs wife in Stratford. It was Monday September 1 - the day after Diana's death.
On returning to London the park outside her home had become filled with floral tributes. Although ill through four days of eating junk food we visited the site for three consecutive mornings and watched the tributes grow. It was a truly awesome, moving sight and somehow the seeds of change in England were sown those few days in Kensington Gardens.
The site is not about Diana but does contain certain events unique to Britain like the Millennium party in Greenwich and other more quirky events like the Glastonbury Festival and Notting Hill Carnival.
The site has a lot more coming up. A lot more innovations, a lot more towns, a lot more of everything. So, please - keep coming back and keep in contact!
