    If we're talking about the entire British Isles then I would say 'yes' even louder. Some of the vistas I saw in Ireland were beautiful, and epic too. In England though, only what I've seen, the scenery is more homely than wondrous.

    I live in West Sussex and the scenery is lovely. Especially along the South Downs. I think Britian is beautiful in many places, not so much in others, but it's the same with most countries.

    I love the British landscape. Whenever I've been away, one of the things I love about getting home and getting of the plane is seeing how green everything is.

    It's all a question of aesthetics though. There are people who think 60s concrete blocks are attractive.

    Our country has excellent scenery, however I expect fellow TSRers to realize that places such as the Lake District are far from natural as if they were, like the rest of the country it would be covered in trees. However then we wouldnt be able to enjoy the views.

    "I would say that it is the very lack of obvious drama or spectacle that sets the beauty of our land apart. What is pertinent is the calmness of that beauty, its sense of restraint. It is as though the land knows of it's own beauty and greatness, and feels no need to shout it."

    Yes. Just the rolling countryside is good enough for me.

    Some parts of rural Britain, especially near where I live, look stunning in the Autumn. Underrated and undervalued in my opinion.

    While not from Yorkshire I am of Yorkshire, and am therefore quite happy for Yorkshire to be described as a country, ethnicity or state of mind.

    Of course is does. Ever been to the Lake District, the Highlands, the Hebrides, Snowdonia?
    For a relatively small island we have tremendous diversity in our landscapes.

    Having been brought up in Devon and gone to a uni near the lake district...I'd damn say yes, it is very pretty Just avoid the crap bit in the middle or rather, stick to the west of the country which is much more pretty then the east.

    Take the national express east coast line from, say, London to Edinburgh and just stare out of the window the whole way - it's gorgeous. Especially the views of Durham, Newcastle and the countryside north of Newcastle, it's fantastic.

    I'd say Britain has some great scenery. It's so diverse. You can have craggy cliffs and harsh mountains at one end, and at the other you get green rolling hills with long, sandy beaches. Yummy. It's so gorgeous! Try visiting the Devonshire and Cornish coast (you might also want to visit Dartmoor in Devon - it's gorgeous), the New Forest, Brecon Beacons area in Wales, Malvern Hills, North York Moors, Peak District, and of course the Highlands! Obviously I haven't been everywhere in Britain so I couldn't say where the best place is but all the ones I've listed are lovely.
