Britain Unlimited covers the lives and history of 250 of Great Britain's most famous people.
It tells you who they were, what they did and where they went in a chronological biography so that you too can follow in their footsteps for research or purely for pleasure.
Please select the information you require from one of the menus below for either name of the person or subject, or just visit the Full List of 250.

On Britain Unlimited you'll also find museums dedicated to their memory, places they lived in or visited and examples of the works they achieved. You'll find lists of the books they wrote and the pictures they painted. In fact everything you need to know to get a flavour of the people that made Britain great. This site is dedicated to individual people so you will not find Kings and Queens here. There is a wealth of material elsewhere on the Internet to cover this subject, however visit the timeline if you want to relate a person to a particular reign. If you want to link a person to a Prime Minister choose the year from this list.
Follow the links in the top or bottom menus for further information about Great Britain itself and the organisations and companies that can help you.
In Britain we seem to be
obsessed with age and death so if you quickly need to find out how old
one of our characters was when they died go to our age at death page and select the column by surname
or age at which they died.
