Audio slideshow: The English at play

Brighton-based photographer Simon Roberts travelled the length and breadth of England in a motorhome for his book We English - in which he tries to capture a nation at play, and explore the relationship between people and the places they visit.

The exhibition is currently on tour - and about to arrive in Simon's home city. So here, with summer just around the corner, see what he discovered as he studied the English enjoying their free time.
