More About the Author

Ben Hatch's latest novel is called THE P45 DIARIES: How To Get Sacked From Every Job in Britain. Currently being developed as a BBC sitcom, and a former BBC Radio 4 Book of The Year, it was previously titled The Lawnmower Celebrity and is based loosely on Ben's woeful experiences of his teens and 20s when his dad thought he was an oaf.
Ben was born in London and grew up there, in Manchester and also in Buckinghamshire, where he lived in a windmill that meant he was called Windy Miller at school for years, though he's not been scarred by this experience at all. He now lives in Brighton with his tiny wife Dinah, and two children, in a normal house. He likes cheese and is balding although he disguises this fact by spiking his hair to a great height to distract people he wishes to impress.
Ben (who is actually writing this and pretending to be someone else)has written for The Guardian, The Times, The Daily Telegraph, The Daily Mail and The Daily Express among other newspapers. Previously he wrote ROAD TO ROUEN: A 10,000 Mile Journey In A Cheese-filled Passat that was a Number One bestseller and ARE WE NEARLY THERE YET? 8,000 Miles Round Britain In A Vauxhall Astra, a BBC Radio 2 Book of the Year, and also a Number One bestseller. It is also under development as a film by Island Pictures.
Ben is the tallest Hatch who ever lived (5ft 9in) and is the son of Sir David Hatch, the radio performer and producer whose shadow Ben doesn't at all feel under. He also maintains that he knows the cure for the common cold (tweet him at @BenHatch to find this out) and that one of his relatives was John Couch-Adams who discovered the planet Neptune. Apparently, his aunty told him.

Many years ago his novel the International Gooseberry was published by Orion. It was about a hapless backpacker with a huge ungovernable toenail. It was described as "hysterical and surprisingly sad" by the Daily Express. Ben Hatch was on the long-list of Granta's 2003 list of the most promising 20 young authors in the UK, but missed out on final inclusion possibly because of the toenail stuff. In association with his wife Dinah, he has also written three guidebooks for Frommer's.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of ideas! 18 Feb 2012
By C. Drew
Format:Paperback
This guidebook is written in a very chatty style with lots of personal anecdotes from the authors of their experiences at various places. Personally I really liked this style as it made the places seem much more real, and as I have a child of similar age to that of the authors it's helpful to know how they got on! However I appreciate this style isn't for everyone so if all you want is facts and figures then look elsewhere. I found lots of good ideas for places to go near me, however there are some places I know about that I was surprised weren't included. I know they can't include everything, but the book is not actually that big (only just over a centimetre thick) so I think they could have included a bit more! All in all though a really good buy if you have people of different ages to entertain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing approach to travel guidebooks 2 Aug 2010
Format:Paperback
I had been looking for a family oriented travel guidebook when I stumbled across this gem! Not only is it full of great ideas for days out with kids, the author has adopted an informal and highly amusing style, so different from the usual turgid guide books. Each place has clearly been visited (rather than just googled) as there are personal comments and anecdotes througout - making for a highly enjoyable read. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant guide book for family days out 5 Jun 2011
By S. A. Broadhurst VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
A guide book aimed specifically for families, full of great places for days out and all given star ratings (from 0 to 3 stars). The reviews are written by the authors, Ben and Dinah Hatch and are written in a friendly, informative manner and include personal references to what interested them there.

The book is split into six sections of England and each section has its own top 10 highlights for children before splitting the section into smaller areas and reviewing many attractions from the area. There is essential information on getting around the area by train or bus, things to see and do, fun facts about the area, along with further, more detailled information about specific towns, villages or areas. There is also details from family friendly accomadation and dining.

In all a great book to have in the glove compartment when out on family days out. The book also contains entrance fee costs and opening times, however it is advisable to double check these before making a specific journey.
