EXPLORING BRITAIN

AA    Book Number: 85059    Product format: Paperback

A useful touring companion that explains how to discover Britain 'on foot, by bike, by horse, by balloon, by barge or boat, by car, by train from coast to coast.' In other words, it is full of ideas for exploring 33 areas of the country. The book divides Britain into six broad regions, which it then reduces further to make it easy to find the section of the countryside which you are visiting. It shows walks, places of interest, special features - for instance, in Cornwall it lists best surfing beaches, art galleries, fishing villages, houses and gardens to visit, amongst other delights. West Yorkshire includes a section entitled Brontë Country, with a walk around the Haworth and Brontë moors. Take a Thames boat trip from Westminster to Hampton Court, a walk in Birdlip and the Cotswolds, see magnificent Ripon Cathedral or cycle in Fife or learn about Harris Tweed. Packed with historical fact boxes on nature, crafts and heritage. 'Not to be missed' places, top viewing points, fully mapped car drives, walks and cycle rides, special features on National Trails, waterways, country parks, National parks and bird reserves. Contact names, addresses and phone numbers and 33 specially commissioned colour paintings. Softback, 320pp, heavyweight 10½" x 9", colour illus, clear colour maps. Remainder mark.
