Jersualem. An absolute tune, and also home of the lyric “England’s green and pleasant land”, which by the looks of these stunning views, is an understatement.
Because ‘pleasant’ isn’t quite enough to do justice to these breathtaking vistas, all located in good old Blighty.
To mark the forthcoming launch of their Galaxy S8 smartphone, Samsung has revealed the results of a study to discover the 20 greatest British views, with over 2,500 people polled for their favourites (with photographer Matthew Cattell taking three of the snaps below on said phone).
