Bookshop Tours of Britain (Paperback)
Likely on our shelves now
Bookshop Tours of Britain is a slow-travel guide to Britain, navigating bookshop to bookshop. Across 18 bookshop tours, the reader journeys from the Jurassic Coast of southwest England, over the mountains of Wales, through England's industrial heartland, up to the Scottish Highlands, and back via Whitby, the Norfolk Broads, central London, the South Downs, and Hardy's Wessex. On their way, the tours visit beaches, castles, head down coal mines, go to whiskey distilleries, bird watching, hiking, canoeing, to stately homes, and the houses of some of Britain's best-loved historic writers—and, last but not least, a host of fantastic bookshops.
