A delightful escape from the hubbub of the modern world, three-and-a-half-mile-long Lundy Island is located where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Bristol Channel. Roads are undisturbed by cars. There's a small village, a Victorian church, even a 13th-century castle. The surrounding waters are home to Great Britainís first marine nature reserve. On this granite outcropping, there are farms and open moorlands. Seals blanket the eastern shore. Owned by Britain's National Trust and maintained by the Landmark Trust, the island evokes a more tranquil time.
The local currency is the British Pound.
