British Issue of Victoria Magazine

Hot off the presses, so get your copy now, Victoria magazine has just issued its British issue for the fall here in the United States. If you are familiar with Victoria magazine, you know you're in for a treat thumbing through its newest issue with a focus on Britain.

Here's your chance to escape for the afternoon as the magazine takes you on a tour of unique seaside villages

up and down the coastline from Sussex to Kent.

You'll tour Leeds Castle and be introduced to a few more abbeys, cathedrals and castles.

Even more information is found online at their website about one of my favorite shopping areas, Marylebone Village. There you'll find pictures of shop called The Button Queen, where you'd be hard pressed to not find the button you needed

and VV Rouleaux, an incredible ribbon and trim shop

as well as Daunt Books, an original Edwardian travel bookshop where you can immerse yourself in the country of your dreams.

Featured in the magazine and online is La Fromagerie, one of the best cheese shops in England with a small cafe for light meals. I love the animation on their website. Hmmmm... I think another visit to Marylebone village is now on my list and I'll be sure and show you more photos, and tease you with more of the fun shopping and dining you can find there. Until then, grab an issue of Victoria magazine on the newsstands and be transported away.
