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 two menus below for either name of the person or subject or just visit the Full List of 250.
On Britain Unlimited
you'll 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 left margin for further information about Great Britain itself and the organisations and companies that can help you.
