We’ve scoured YouTube to bring you some of the best time-lapse images from around Britain that you’ll find on the Web, all in one blog post. Sit back… relax… and enjoy them one by one. There are some real gems here.
Cumbria in a hurry
The port of Dover
Annually, the port of Dover sees 16 million travellers, 700,000 lorries and 1.6 million cars and motorcycles, making it Europe’s busiest port. This footage is shot between midnight and 1am on a moonlit night.
Ferry from Mull to Iona, Scotland
This time-lapse video condenses 30 minutes into just over a minute as a Calmac ferry docks and then sets sail from Fionnphort to return to the Isle of Iona. Quite a contrast to Dover!
The London Eye in two minutes
A beautifully timed revolution of the London Eye that co-incides with sunset over the capital.
Dawn at Stonehenge
This is a very short time-lapse of a winter’s dawn at Stonehenge, but a beautiful one nonetheless.
Life on campus at the University of Dundee
Miscellaneous pieces of footage showing student life at the University of Dundee, ranked top in Scotland in The Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2011.
The tilting Newcastle Gateshead Millennium Bridge
The tilting of the Newcastle Gateshead Millennium Bridge was captured with this series of 330 photographs shot over a 20 minute period.
Driving around Jersey
OK, before some pedant tells us “Jersey isn’t in Britain”… we know, but we thought we’d make an exception. This video takes you on an Autumn drive and gives an overview of the island and sections of its beautiful coastline.
Blue skies over Wastwater
The photographer picked a good day for this one. Beautiful blue skies with some scattered clouds reflected in the water of one of England’s most dramatic lakes, Wastwater.
Slow down, London!
In stark contrast to the first video in our selection, Slow Down London was actually a project back in 2009 that was designed to use time-lapse imagery to get Londoners to slow down a little and appreciate their surroundings. It highlights some of the more relaxed opportunities available in the city.
