Presenting the best poems from the nationwide Places of Poetry project, selected from over 7,500 entries

Poetry lives in the veins of Britain, its farms and moors, its motorways and waterways, highlands and beaches.

This anthology brings together time-honoured classics with some of the best new writing collected across the nation, from great monuments to forgotten byways.

Featuring new writing from Kayo Chingonyi, Gillian Clarke, Zaffar Kunial, Jo Bell and Jen Hadfield, Places of Poetry is a celebration of the strangeness and variety of our islands, their rich history and momentous present.
