This England is the quarterly magazine for everyone who loves England’s scenery, heritage, history and people. Launched in 1968 with the light-hearted slogan, “as refreshing as a pot of tea” and with a mission of “poetry not politics”, it is packed with absorbing articles, beautiful photography and uplifting stories and poems celebrating all that is best about England.

Over the years This England has built up - at home and abroad - a loyal readership who love its vibrant mix of features and nostalgia.

In each seasonal issue we explore England’s historic towns and picturesque villages, our lovely countryside, our rich history, Kings and Queens, fine stately homes and churches.  

We also celebrate glorious gardens, colourful customs, curiosities, legends and ground-breaking historic and modern characters.

We have stories of planes, trains and extraordinary automobiles. While there’s plenty of nostalgia, we find much to celebrate in modern England too, from the arts and culture to the forward-thinking entrepreneurs, architects and craft-makers.

All in all, everything that makes England such a lively and interesting country.  

In recent issues alone, we have explored York, gone off the beaten track in the Lake District, celebrated our fantastic piers, walked our coastal paths, visited the historic home of one of England’s finest artists, celebrated everyone from Sir Christopher Wren to Stephen Hawkin and Sir David Attenborough.

We have learned why writer Tom Fort’s favourite road is the A303, looked at England’s highway-women, found tea growing in Cornwall, crystal glass-making in Cumbria and we have guided our readers towards the best seasonal gardens and the loveliest scenery. In every issue there’s so much to discover.  

This England have been based in Fleet Street, since 2018, right next to St Dunstan’s Church. At number 186, in fact, which was also, co-incidentally the address of everyone’s least favourite fictional barber Sweeney Todd!
