Good Britain Guide

Project Summary

Walks consultant and regular contributor to other sections for 12 editions of this idiosyncratic, opinionated, late and much-lamented guide to the best of Britain.

A remarkably comprehensive guide, unlike any other; pity it didn’t make enough money to survive. It would have done really well in the 1980s.Undoubtedly it wasn't the sort of book to compete with the internet, but it's not easy to find anything online that is so concise and honest. It was much missed by many when it ceased publication.

This was published annually 1993-2004 by the same team who produce The Good Pub Guide (it actually was the result of all the places they ended up visiting while making inspection visits to pubs). It was published up to 1997 as The Good Weekend Guide

After its demise in 2004, I moved over to working as Associate Editor of the Good Pub Guide.

An exceptional guide that manages to condense genuinely useful information about places to stay and eat and places to visit in each county of Britain into under 1,000 pages.
