Book Description

15 May 2010 Bradt Travel Guides (Slow Guides)
Laurence Mitchell, long-time resident of Norfolk, invites travellers to the region to take a leisurely sojourn around both the well known sights and off-the-beaten track secrets in a personal tour that takes in the coast and villages, remote marshes, beaches, shingle banks, towns and cities of Norfolk and Suffolk. Conservation projects, boat trips, cycle and walking tours, wildlife and bird watching and distinctive vernacular architecture are just some of the attractions which Laurence describes in his distinctive voice, as well as all the practical details you need for an easy relaxing break. What's more, the unique accommodation descriptions from Alastair Sawday mean that you can be sure of a truly 'slow' visit.

More About the Author

Laurence Mitchell was born in the English West Midlands but has spent most of his adult life based in Norwich, Norfolk. Formerly a geography teacher he first turned his hand to travel writing almost a decade ago. As well as the counties of Norfolk and Suffolk at his doorstep he is also drawn to overseas destinations that lie well off the beaten track - those places that Colin Thubron describes as the 'nerve-ends of the world': transition zones and cultural frontiers like Central Asia, the Balkans and the Caucasus region.

Review

'Slow guides take time to point the way.' Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall 'This book, as much an armchair read as a practical guide, delves into fact and fiction with humour, affection and gusto' Let's Talk 'The Slow guides are the perfect travel companion - warm, witty and stuffed with insider knowledge. I can't think of a better way to unlock the joys of Britain.' Carl Honoré, author of In Praise of Slow 'This book is packed with beautiful pictures and information on Suffolk's history, walks and places to stay as well as all the practical details you need for an easy, relaxing break. The author lets the reader in on all the well-known sights as well as off-the-beaten-track secrets.' Food & Travel magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Norfolk & Suffolk - the slow way 4 Nov 2010
Format:Paperback
This book - a new partnership between Alastair Sawday and the Bradt team - offers the reader a colourful, informative, relaxed guide to the nooks and crannies of Norfolk and Suffolk. The emphasis is on slow. This is a book like books used to be written. Curl up and absorb the magic that this part of the world and the slow way of thinking can bring.

5.0 out of 5 stars SLOW BUT BRILLIANT 28 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
Yet another wonderful Sawday's production this time in conjunction with Bradt. If you live in or are planning to Norfolk or Sufolk this is an ideal companion. Including such gems as where to to wildlife, the best walks and cycle rides, great pubs and accommodation. There are also great maps, illustrations and colour photographs. The book is really well written and incredibly interesting and captivating. I would highly recommend this book.
