(1) Bungay, SuffolkAndrew Atterwill, a groundskeeper from Bungay, was named the winner of the best view thanks to his outdoors occupation which sees him spend most of his working days cutting grass and visiting marshes. Taking pictures at work has even become a pastime of his. “I took the photo along the banks of the River Waveney that divides Norfolk where I work in Earsham and Suffolk on the other side of the river,” said the 49-year-old. “The view inspires me every day, I love photography and nature – you never know what you will see. I get into work early to sit on the bench to watch the sunrise so there is always an opportunity to take photos as no two days are the same.” As if the view wasn’t reward enough, he has won £75 worth of travel vouchers. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– (2) Caernarfon, Wales

Prior to the opening of the Shard in February 2013, Canary Wharf was perhaps the most discussed skyscraper in London’s city. Of course, while the Shard is home to many restaurants, bars and even a hotel, Canary Wharf remains a leading business hub and is home to the likes of Trinity Mirror. The location also comes complete with the May-opened Crossrail Place, a leisure area of the £14.8bn Crossrail development which comes loaded with an Everyman Cinema and eateries. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– (4) Edinburgh, Scotland

Seaside town Bournemouth is known to experience spikes in footfall to hospitality businesses – pubs especially – and the beach during events like bank holiday. However, one worker in the Dorset town not only has the pleasure of walking down the road for such luxuries, but also gets to spend the day looking at the Bournemouth skyline and out to open water.
