Book Description

Where to go, what to do, when it rains. Wet Britain: Cornwall is the essential guide to weatherproof your holidays this year. Inside, you'll find over 50 great all-weather attractions, along with detailed listings of cinemas, leisure centres, kids' indoor play zones and even activities that are fun in the rain, like surfing and coasteering!

With June 2012 recorded as the wettest since records began in 1910, and the rain looking set to continue throughout the summer, Wet Britain: Cornwall could well be the best £1.49 you've spent.

In the first of the Wet Britain series of ebooks, award-winning travel writer William Gray picks Cornwall's 10 best 'Wet Weather Wonders': the Blue Reef Aquarium, Charlestown Shipwreck & Heritage Museum, The Eden Project, Flambards Experience, Geevor Tin Mine, Lands End Landmark, Lanhydrock, National Lobster Hatchery, National Maritime Museum and the Tate St Ives.

Other less well-known wet-weather boltholes are also covered, such as Porthcurno Telegraph Museum and Pendennis Castle.

Wet Britain: Cornwall also includes a section on 'Boredom Busters', with 10 classic children's books about Cornwall, three of this summer's must-read children's books and the five family movies hitting the big screen.

A comprehensive listing of Cornwall's visitor centres – 'dry mines of information' – is also included.

"Cornwall has a dazzling range of all-weather attractions," says the author William Gray. "You can venture into an undercover jungle at The Eden Project, ogle sharks at Newquay's Blue Reef Aquarium or admire fine art at the Tate St Ives. Tin mines, maritime museums, Victorian manors, lobster hatcheries, 4D cinemas, ice cream factories and coastal forts provide more good reasons to get out of the rain."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little guide to Cornwall 19 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the best things about the Kindle is that you can find specialist guides like this that you can never find in print. The author has written many guidebooks and won all kinds of awards for his travel writing, and this time he's published his own guide - to what to do when it rains in Cornwall. Apparently there are more coming in the series. They'd have sold well in the UK in summer 2012, that's for sure!

The book begins with the top ten things to do when it's wet, including The Eden Project, the National Maritime Museum, and the Tate in St Ives. They're all wonderful places, wet or dry. But there's much more packed into the book than that - where to find all the cinemas in Cornwall, for example, and the theatres, and indoor leisure centres (so you can go swimming even when it's raining).

The book also tells you where all the tourist information centres are, and all the surfing schools (rain never puts off the surfers). Museums are in hedre too, and art galleries, and everything the author has been able to find to do when it's wet in Cornwall. I liked the recommendation of books to read, too. The guide is aimed more at families, but anyone will find it useful. Given that it costs less than an umbrella, I'd definitely recommend anyone pack it on their Kindle if they're going to Cornwall.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great guide for wet (and dry) days! 2 Sept. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When you go on holiday with children, you need a plan.
If its sunny, then you are generally quite lucky - especially with seaside towns.
When the weather turns though, you need to have a clear cut list of ideas in mind that will entertain and not break the bank.

This book serves that purpose well in offering an insight into many indoor attractions.
You get the chance to weigh up if a place will appeal or not without having to make what could be a stressful journey!

Great, easy to follow advice - looking forward to the next work.

Ian
