We're moving out of central London - looking for the village life and lifestyle.
Having now fully read/reviewed the book I'll be selling it on. On that basis I'd have happily paid for internet access to such information instead - maybe that is a way forward for such authors to capitalise on all their research and hard work.
All in all its been useful, it helped us pick our new home location and now it's down to house hunting!

Format: Paperback
This book is great in principle but it is not as comprehensive as I would have expected.

Sure, its descripion boasts that it covers over 1200 towns - and it does - but it is limited by towns that are served by trains into Liverpool St, Paddington, Euston and Victoria. Stations such as London Bridge, Cannot Street and Blackfriars are forgotten and four out of five of the areas that we are considering moving to - all recognised as being great commuter towns and villages (in Kent) don't even get a mention.

Great idea but let down by incomplete execution.

The book is informative but far from exhaustive. The Shepperton-Waterloo line is not included for instance. The drawings are just padding. Colour photos of the actual towns and villages would help to visualise what is only briefly described. The book is more efficient than collating research online and is a quite reasonable reference book but should be cheaper or provide more comprehensive information.

We really found this book extremely helpful and in fact it formed the guide map of our weekend activities for the best part of a year when we were trying to escape London with our children before they had reached school age. We found the village of Weston through a combination of this book and a good map but this book must have saved us hours and hours of research time.

A useful book - packed with information. Would have been helpful to include the times of the first and last trains of the day.
