Period costume selfies are all the rage, don’t cha’ know

Welcome to Blimey.com! This website is dedicated to lovers of Britain, the true anglophiles, who crave as much inside knowledge about the place as possible. But with a twist!

Blimey! is owned and operated by Tim Holt. Wait, perhaps I should stop writing in third person. Ahem. That’s me on the right. I wish I could dress like that everyday, but it’s not always convenient popping to the loo with those fancy trousers.

I was born and raised in England and spent over 30 years living in that history-rich rain-soaked country, before moving to America and doing some acting and photography – and it was lovely. Now, America is a terrific country. But, you know, it’s wasn’t quite the same as being back home.

As my own personal Anglophile feelings grew (which is a bit strange being a Brit) I developed the very popular “Photos of Britain” Instagram page which has now over 150,000 followers!

Eventually it made more sense for me to be exploring the UK – so I moved back to Britain. Although I still have my connections to the USA and will be returning at some point because I do rather like those free drink refills.

So…do you love England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland? In other words, this website is for anyone who loves Britain and all things “British”. And don’t worry, I won’t just focus on London. I’m from the north of England so expect many articles from across the country. Blimey’s focus will be broad.
