England - A view from our expert author
Spring is green and autumn is golden, and the light in summer stretches deep into the evening. And it really doesn’t rain as much as everyone says!
When scouring the map for travel inspiration, it’s easy to forget just how much England has to offer. This is a country that makes room for the dramatic coasts of Cornwall and the pretty market towns of the Cotswolds, the polished chrome of Canary Wharf and the rough stone of Hadrian’s Wall, manicured parks and wild moors. Spring is green and autumn is golden, and the light in summer stretches deep into the evening. And it really doesn’t rain as much as everyone says!
Bradt’s guides to regions of Britain invite readers to view this country with fresh eyes, to change down a gear and enjoy the essence of a place rather than rushing headlong from one ticklist item to the next. Each book in our Slow Travel series is written by a local author who knows their region intimately, and includes not only details of where to buy delicious produce or take a picturesque walk or find a hidden medieval church, but the stories of the people who live there.
Alternatively, find inspiration for a wildlife break in 52 Wildlife Weekends or A Summer of British Wildlife, discover how to get up close with nature in Wilderness Weekends or Wild Times, choose from the best of the country’s bus and train routes in Bus-Pass Britain and Britain from the Rails, learn how to make the most of complimentary travel in the capital in Freedom Pass London, or take a quirkier approach to your travels with a book from our Eccentric series.
