The search below will show you some of the most beautiful photos I’ve ever seen of England’s countryside, the region that has inspired generations of English composers. It’s Stratford, Bath and Oxford, where you’ll find thatched roofs and true Tudor architectural homes along winding country roads rolling through undulating hills. These images make the countryside in Lord of the Rings look like old abandoned factories in former eastern-block Soviet nations.

  1. Geoffrey Darling Says:

    That comparison with Lord of The Rings countryside – which we all know is New Zealand – gives grave offence to all Kiwis. Having walked parts of The Cotswolds and travelled extensively in my native New Zealand I bridled unreservedly when I heard Pennell’s attempt at exultation of the former. Nothing but an unreservedly apology, not necessarily to New Zealanders but certainly to the god of misplaced hyperbole, will now suffice.

  2. Matthias Colberg Says:

    It is definitely a picturesque sight. However, I think I would wallow more in the sigth rather in the debate between England and New Zealand. I think both places are breathtaking in their own respect.
