  Been There - Done That: An illustrated guide to Great Britain

This web site was 21 years old in January 2022.
"What is it?"

A pictorial travel guide to Great Britain based on actual personal experience

It features places that we have visited ( 'Been There' ), and photographed ( 'Done That' ), since I started using a digital camera in 1998. It is not a collection of other people's information and is a non-commercial site (We don't get paid for doing it and there are no advertisements).

Great Britain includes England, Scotland and Wales only. It does not include the Channel Islands or any part of Ireland. The areas on the map, marked in dark grey, are places for which we do not yet have pictures and the light grey areas are outside the scope of this site.

"What's in it for me?" The site is arranged by county and if you are not familiar with the British county system then you can see how they are laid out on the map above. If you are not happy with that then there is a section where the information is arranged by subject e.g. Churches, Landscapes, Coasts, Medieval etc. There is also a search option, where you can search for specific terms, together with a gazetteer (names of places in an alphabetical list).

There is a section on driving, with pictures, aimed specifically at overseas visitors and separate sections on public transport for those of you who do not wish to drive and a section on public footpaths for those who are interested in walking.

There is a Guestbook where you may comment on this web site, and there is 'Our Blog' in which I give an account of 'Britain related' items which I hope will be of interest including short trips which are not really comprehensive enough to be included in the main site. The Blog also has an RSS Feed which means that if you have a Feed Reader then you will automatically be notified when additions are made.

There is an updates page detailing the latest additions to the site and this is also available as an RSS Feed

You are welcome to suggest places that you think other visitors would like to see and which we should visit. We cannot promise to include them but if we can then we will.

We do our best to provide accurate information but we do not guarantee its accuracy. You'll be pleased to know that the responsibility for checking the accuracy of the information is entirely yours particularly if something important depends upon it.

1st June 2015: This web site, we hope, has given you a lot of help but now we need your help.

This web site is non-commercial; that is to say it does not earn or receive any income and Amanda and Barry pay for it out of their own pockets and have been happy to do so. At present, 1st June 2015, the web site costs around £200 a year to run. That amount includes 'bandwidth' which is the amount of traffic that passes through it (visits). Your visits to this site add to that traffic.

Because the site is becoming so popular it now needs considerably more bandwidth to operate and, for us, that is financially unsustainable.

The website went 'off the air' yesterday (31st May 2015) for about 4 hours, until midnight (start of a new month), because the amount of bandwidth we are allowed was reached. We can buy extra bandwidth but it costs £40 per 10 GB and that may last only around 3 months before needing a further top-up. Let's put that into perspective. The maximum number of visits in a month during the past 12 months was 62,848 and we are now using about 100 GB of bandwidth every month and the number of visitors keeps increasing which is why we now have this problem. As the number of visitors to the web site grows inexorably each year then access to the site will be blocked earlier and earlier each month.

We would ask that you consider making a small donation, even a pound ( £1.00) would help, to keep this web site and blog going.

The Donate Button will take you to a new page where you can specify how much you want to donate and how you want to pay it. Please help us keep the web site and blog running. Thank you!
