Britain's loveliest magazine since 1968

Launched in 1968 with the light-hearted slogan, “as refreshing as a pot of tea” and with a mission of “poetry not politics” This England 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 about modern and traditional subjects. In each seasonal issue we explore England’s historic towns and picturesque villages, our lovely countryside, our rich history, Great Britons, fine stately homes and churches, glorious gardens, colourful customs, curiosities and traditions.

And while there’s lots of nostalgia, we find plenty 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 place.

We have a network of fabulous contributors based all around the country writing on every subject imaginable and briefed to entertain and inform in everything they write. 

Inside This England Winter 2023 issue

England can look its best in winter, sporting crisp blue skies and greenery touched with frost. In honour of the season, we’re exploring some of the country’s best places to visit in the winter months.

Firstly, Margaret Brecknell visits the gorgeous Castle Drogo, England’s youngest castle, on the edge of Dartmoor. The grand building looks spectacular lit up with Christmas lights, and is brimming with fascinating history. And, moving north, Marie Gardner discovers all the North Pennines have to offer. Spanning Durham, Northumberland and Cumbria, delve into the industrial history of this now peaceful corner of England.

And of course, winter isn’t complete without a church visit. This England editor Angela Linforth visits the lovely St Edward’s, Stow-on-the-Wold. Rated by Trip Advisor as the number one thing to see in Stow, it’s steeped in history and is certainly worth a visit. Meanwhile, Simone Stanbrook-Bryne takes a trip to Gloucestershire’s Painswick Rococo Garden. Magical in the winter, discover an ornate birdhouse carved from a tree stump, swathes of snowdrops, a formal garden, a maze and much more.

And of course, that’s not all…

Meet the Editor: Angela Linforth

Angela Linforth, Editor of This EnglandAngela Linforth, Editor of This England

It is my absolute joy to be the editor of This England - what a voyage of discovery! I’m the third editor in the history of this wonderful magazine, having taken over in 2018. I have been a journalist and editor for most of my working life, although I had a foray briefly into the traditional English hand-made furniture industry. 

What I love about This England is its breadth of subject matter. While one day I can be learning about the history of aviation, or the favourite dogs of the royal family, the next I can be sailing up the River Severn or visiting Berkeley Castle to see the site of Edward II’s supposed death by red-hot poker (something I was reminded of, of course, through the pages of This England).

In the five years that I’ve been here I’ve discovered so many fascinating things about our country, which despite the best efforts of our leaders, continues to thrill. 

I have also absolutely loved the interactions with you, our wonderful readers, who are always coming forward with such a wealth of good ideas for the magazine, pithy comments on our features and feedback on aspects of this country that are little known and wonderful to discover.

If you want to get in touch, share a story or comment on anything in the magazine, please email us at or write to us at This England, 185-186 Fleet Street, London EC4A 2HS.
