The Queen's Palace and grounds is a renowned area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (architecturally and in terms of the gardens also) but this is a formal kind of beauty. The Fairy Kingdom at large is generally a lovely place but its beauty is more wild, especially outside the villages and towns. Travellers use magic to help them get from A to B in the firstplace and to shield from from harm given the realm has vast areas where dragons and other foul fiends are at large. When the Kingdom's Rough Guide says "Here Be Dragons", they are (a) right and (b) serious.
