Collections is a specialist picture library devoted to all things British. The geography, history, architecture, crafts and customs of the UK and Ireland

We can take you to see the astoundingly varied landscapes, cities, towns, villages and buildings of the British Isles from pre-historic times to this very day, the people, the industries, events, customs and traditions - and almost everything else to be found in these unusually interesting islands.

You can search the site using the search box that appears at the bottom of eack page or the “Extended search” above. Clicking on any image on the results page gives you a decent sized preview along with a list of fully cross linked keywords relevant to the picture so, if you feel so inclined you can go for a walk through the pictures, however the fancy takes you.

To order pictures, or simply make further enquiries about them, add the picture to the lightbox then view your lightbox and click the Order button. You can also save any lightbox for later reference. The default lightbox will be emptied after 14 days if it is not updated, saved lightboxes last a year. [note]

The whole point of Collections is to have as near to everything on the British Isles as we can reasonably manage but it is impossible to include every tiny village, every obscure event or every small architectural detail. If you don't find what you are after on the site then please get in touch with us and we will do our best to satisfy your requirements.
