The Royal Jubilee and the Olympics have shown the world exactly what makes Britain Great, and the UK is the current place to see and be seen. But there is much more to Britain than just pomp and ceremony – and who better to guide you through the social minefield of the British Season than Her Ladyship?

This practical guide will take you on a tour of all the best events, including Chelsea Flower Show, Glyndebourne Festival, Lord’s Test Cricket, The Epsom Derby and Royal Ascot, Wimbledon, Henley Royal Regatta, Glorious Goodwood, Cowes Week and many more. Her Ladyship is always on hand to explain what happens where, giving invaluable advice on dress codes and traditional customs along the way. Insider’s tips on getting tickets and what not to miss at each event make this the must-have companion of the Season.

She is not related to Her Ladyship, but shares many of her prejudices. She lives in London.
