About the book

See Britain in a whole new light with Britain From Above Month by Month, a stunning visual portrait of the British Isles throughout the year from renowned aerial photographer Jason Hawkes.

Explore every corner of Britain from majestic mountain landscapes and haunting medieval ruins to magnificent feats of engineering and dramatic coastlines and see how familiar scenes, famous events and iconic monuments take on a whole new life when viewed from a different angle. Look down at the Angel of the North from a new perspective, take in the glittering London skyline from on high and see a patchwork of festival tents as you've never seen them before.

This version, designed especially for the iPad, includes 19 galleries of additional images including Buckingham Palace, Britain's beaches and the River Thames. Plus, video clips and aerial tours with locator maps featuring fascinating information take you on a journey that you'll never forget around ancient sites, mazes, lighthouses, castles and mountains. Perfect for the iPad, the screen intensifies colors and brings the images to life for a truly immersive experience.

Britain From Above Month by Month is a true celebration of Britain in all its glory.

Our Thoughts

I originally asked to review this ebook from DK before the Olympics.  However, with the tornado that came into our lives with a possible move to Toronto – which never materialized in the end – I was swamped with packing and unpacking for July and August.   We are just getting back into a normal lifestyle and I am catching up on some of the reviews that were packed in boxes. 

So yesterday I sat down on the sofa in the living room and proceeded into looking at the book Britain From Above.   In a manner of time, the kids cuddled around me to look at what I was doing and started to oooh! and aaah! when they liked a particular picture found in this book.    The pictures are indeed very original and breathtaking – all of them taken from the air.   It gives you a unique view of Britain and how marvelous the country can be throughout the seasons.

This particular book is divided into the four seasons – views from above the air of various parts of Britain and how the seasons can give a special touch to this country.    Each of the sections in this book is unique and will give  you a interesting view of a country that is worth discovering from the view of winged creatures.  

My kids particularly likes the roller-coaster pictures as well as the castles and other places to visit in Britain. 


Whether you would like to travel to Britain but can’t afford it or you just want to have a different view of places you have visited in the past, I think Britain From Above would be a very interesting ebook to have on your iPad.

Britain From Above is available for purchase via iTunes.
