5.0 out of 5 stars Amusingly, eccentrically British, 5 Nov. 2013
This review is from: More Bollocks to Alton Towers: More Uncommonly British Days Out (Paperback)
Not merely the off-beat attractions, but the writing in this little book demonstrate the best of British quirkiness and humour. The humour ranges from the whimsical (such as the notion of Black Forest farm workers making cuckoo clocks during winter when there aren't any gateaux to harvest!), to the downright cynical. It must be said, though, that the authors are never less than charmed with the many & varied unusual places they write about; 45 in total.

One word of caution about the book - it was written in 2008. Inevitably, over the course of time some of the attractions may disappear; indeed, one already has, due to vandalism & theft. If this book does inspire you to visit any of its recommendations, then check it's still there before you go! To which end, the authors have done their best to include full contact details for each, including website addresses.

Nevertheless, even if you never get around to visiting any of them (shame!), the book is well worth reading in its own right and, if you've any love for anything in what might loosely be called "Traditional British Humour", it should generate plenty of chuckles. Now, I'm sure I've got a copy of the first one somewhere... Where's it gone...
