The British Tourist Authority
Official site of the Authority and its local Tourist Boards.

English Heritage exists to protect and promote England's spectacular historic environment and ensure that its past is researched and understood.

SterlingTimes is here in celebration of "Uncool Britiannia". It's the site where etiquette is still more important than political correctness. SterlingTimes is about British nostalgia. It's about old and vintage radio, television, music and literature. It's about Englishness and patriotism.
