Book Description

5 Jun 2005
Bare Britain, by Nick Mayhew-Smith and Mike Charles, is a beautiful guide to Britain’s best places for baring all. It offers a unique insight into this fascinating and exciting world, with more than 50 beaches and 100 naturist clubs described.

Following the success of last year’s ‘Bare Beaches’, the authors wanted to highlight the many idyllic nudist locations in Britain. On a region-by-region basis, ‘Bare Britain’ highlights tranquil locations both on the coast and inland where you are free to relax in the nude. With useful advice, handy hints and helpful recommendations including detailed travel directions, naturists and first-timers shouldn’t leave home without it.

From the Publisher

Bare Britain, uncovers a surprisingly varied and welcoming range of places to enjoy being naked in nature. The book is from the same authors as Bare Beaches, last year’s top-selling guide to holiday nude beaches in Europe and around the world.

Packed with 150 sunny photos and supported by practical information, Bare Britain is both a handy read and an inspiring visual treat. With an upfront and modern approach to the simple pleasures of bathing naked, it appeals to a broad cross-section of readers.

Focusing on the stress-free and back-to-nature benefits of simple living, its 200 pages showcase the best of British – from deserted beaches to the traditional naturist club. The book’s pictures and fascinating descriptions will surprise, delight and entertain anyone with a sense of freedom in their souls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bare Britain 15 May 2005
By A Customer
It would be a great addition to any naturist's, or potential naturist's
library. It is very well written, with excellent photographs which
illustrate the places described and express the joy of naturism in a true
and natural way. It is an absolute mine of information about beaches, clubs
and other locations & organisations for naturism, and even with 40 years of
naturism behind me there's lots in there I didn't know. I recommend it thoroughly.I congratulate all those involved with producing it.
Very good value for money, which will give years of pleasure!

This book is a great guide to all the best beaches and clubs around the UK where the only clothes you need are your birthday suit! Once the summer arrives this will be the perfect companion when looking for au-natural beaches. It also serves as a good introduction to naturism so if you haven't tried nude bathing I urge you to check out this book and and give it go. You will be hooked!

4.0 out of 5 stars The safe places to go natural in Britain 8 April 2010
The book is clear about the places which have official naturist status and are therefore safe places. It clearly guides you to some accepted beaches around the country which are not "official" except by long use as a naturist beach. In Scotland some east coast additions would be useful as well as some more mainland west coast locations where naturism has been practised for a while and should have had a mention in the book.
Holiday destinations abroad are mentioned with the emphasis on affordable, easy to get to destinations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where you can bare it! 13 Aug 2005
Nick Mayhew Archer and Mike Charles have produced another essential guide for those of us who enjoy our seaside sun all over. There are relatively few beaches in Britain for the naturist, so this comprehensive review should be kept in the glove box for reference purposes! Readers of Bare Beaches will find the same helpful format with information on parking, refreshments, toilets,and where to stay.
Perhaps Britain's local authorities will wake up now and provide some more bare beaches in the UK!
