About Simon Ridgwell
Founder & Editor, Best of England
Best of England is the creative concept of Simon Ridgwell, a digital marketeer, strategist and entrepreneur based in East Sussex, England.
As a creative director for some of the world’s leading digital advertising agencies Simon designed, built and marketed award winning websites for some of the biggest international brands including Jamie Oliver, Top Gear, Rough Guides and Penguin Books.
Simon’s goal for Best of England is to create an authentic, world class brand which our customers trust and love. To do this, Simon realised that the team had to take all their own photography to beautifully represent each of the recommendations they make and create something unique.
