This is Great Britain

This is Great Britain. It’s where I was born and brought up. It’s my home.
I am an adventurer. I have travelled a lot, right the way around the world, visiting incredible places in almost a hundred countries.
But only when I got back home again did I appreciate just how much there is to explore and discover and treasure right here under my nose in this crowded, rainy, quirky, ancient, beautiful, thrilling little island.

I have had lots of requests for the locations we shot at. Hope this helps you plan your own trips!

We’re filled with history, with castles and cathedrals and mysterious old caves covered in shells and massive trees and walled seaside towns and hushed libraries filled with treasures. We’ve got pubs 800 years old, century-old theme parks, and world war 2 forts left empty and mysterious since they defended London out in the estuary of the Thames.
You can do it all in Britain: gaze at the stars, dangle from wires, sleep in a lighthouse, hold a hawk, pat a cactus, ponder the universe or just sit and drink tea. There's So much tea! And cake.
You might choose to camp in a tent or wallow in a hot tub, eat candy floss, or fish and chips. You can take to the skies or go climbing underground, like the wild landscapes of Wales or England or Scotland. You can pedal fast or paddle slow, ride on a horse or on a rollercoaster. You can do it all.
We get rain, for certain, loads of rain. But if you’re lucky you’ll get some sunshine, maybe some snow too. There’s warm nights and muddy faces, and good people who’ll make jokes about the weather and suggest cups of tea as solutions to everything.
This is my home. It’s packed full with towns and cliffs and beaches and bays and mountains and green fields. And the crazy thing is that it took me years of exploring the whole world before I finally came back home and discovered just what it is that makes Britain great.

- It was a real pleasure to get to travel around Britain for National Geographic visiting all these fabulous places. The film was made by Brother Film Co ( and I really hope it encourages people to come Visit Britain.
