Nestled on Compton beach on the beautiful Isle of wight a strange Monolith has appeared. Art sculpture? Sent by aliens ( fans of Artur C Clarkes a space odyssey will see the connection!) or a huge media hype ?

It might not be other worldly but it is simply mysterious, magical  and a little special .

Here we go again … another survey. This time, try to figure out which places the British love the most and missed the most during the lockdown. 44% of respondents feel happier in countryside places or in any case with nature, the 31% to the cinema or theatre and the 20% in historic places like Stonehenge or Chatsworth Residence.

Kew Gardens which tops the charts as the happiest place in the UK, around 12% of Britons feel at home in this botanical garden and missed it a lot during lockdown.
