A tourist's guide to the architecture of England: "From Blenheim Palace to Milton's Cottage, from Chatsworth to John Lennon's Childhood home, from Spencer House to a tiny hop-picker's shack in Kent, every architectural style and period are included providing a setting for almost every kind of English Life. Jenkins's only criteria are interest, distinction, and that the property should be open to the public." Sir Simon David Jenkins is a British author and newspaper columnist and editor. Jenkins chaired the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty from 2008 to 2014.
