The Great British Bucket List: Utterly Unmissable Britain [9781911358732]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

If you want to ski off a cliff or swim with sharks, stop reading now.

This book is about achievable adventures that celebrate the best of Britain and Britishness. The 60 mini adventures are graded in difficulty from comically easy to mildly challenging, making them suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities.

They include the most beautiful place to go for a stroll, the easiest place for a wild swim and, more importantly, the most spectacular place to have a cup of tea. Not to mention flying in a Spitfire and finding delicious food among the hedgerows.

So what's on this Great British Bucket List?

Well, a host of alternative UK adventures to get you out of the house. From fossil hunting on the Jurassic coast to forest bathing in Standish Woods, family-friendly music festivals to spectacular walks and lazy picnic hotspots, this essential guide is packed with must-do experiences.

Discover the world of luxury eco-glamping in Devon and Suffolk. Book your tickets for the Minack, Cornwall's world famous open-air theatre. Follow in the footsteps of the Kinder Scout mass trespass in Dark Peak, or go canoeing down the Wye Valley in Wales.

Besides old favourites, such as Stonehenge and Westminster Abbey, readers will find a bucket list bursting with suggestions for pleasant days out at some of the National Trust's historic houses.

Whether you're luxuriating in Sissinghurst's famous gardens or moseying around Fountains Abbey, you're sure to have a uniquely British adventure.

    I purchased the book as a gift for a friend, I had a sneak preview of the content and it is packed with all kinds of ideas to partake here in the UK. I am more than sure this book will be reviewed quite a lot by my friend and will keep him busy.
