Lustleigh, Devon Hidden in a wooded combe, this film-set-perfect village is one of Dartmoor’s most lovingly maintained, according to Suzy Bennett. Its thatched cottages are grouped around a 13th-century church, with the Primrose Tea Rooms to one side and village shop to the other. The rural idyll is completed by the cricket pitch, communal apple orchard and a friendly pub serving real ales and great food ( thecleavelustleigh.com primrosetearooms.co.uk).
The Museum of London's London Street Photography exhibition displays scores of candid images of everyday life through the years. Dating from approximately 1860, the pictures show a city but a city both wholly recognisable and strangely familiar.
