Councillor Frank Ross presenting Michael Palin with a framed Britain from the Air image of Arthur's seat that was featured in the exhibition.
An opportunity to celebrate, explore and be inspired by our small island, the Britain from the Air street gallery encourages visitors to learn more about and enjoy Britain's most breathtaking and thought provoking environments
From coastal erosion and abandoned villages to transport networks and the growth of our cities, Britain from the Air, combines the beauty and abstract contours of these landscapes with their stories; inviting the viewer to explore their local, regional and national environment from a completely different perspective.
Supported by text captions devised and written by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and additional pictures which reveal the stories behind the image, Britain from the Air represents an unmissable opportunity to learn about Britain as you've never seen it before. Spectacular saw-toothed coastlines, glittering city silhouettes and the luminous trajectories of waterways are just some of the fascinating forms and shapes that will be revealed as the audience is lifted from street level to sky high while exploring Britain's wondrous and varied landscapes.
A giant, large-scale walk on map of Britain offers visitors the unique opportunity to truly view Britain from above. Visitors can walk the length and breadth of the country in just a few seconds, literally walking over their home town and pinpointing the precise location of each of the 100 images from the exhibition.
Free to view and accessible 24 hours a day, this extraordinary outdoor exhibition offers the opportunity to visit again and again with friends and family.
