Every year we have 52 weekends - 104 days - to ourselves, to do whatever we want. Yet how often to we actually take advantage of this precious time? "52 Weekends by the Sea" is about getting out there, exploring and celebrating the best the British coastline has to offer - 52 great escapes for explorers, romantics, mums, dads and kids seeking to savour the seaside in all its moods. From the spangling showgirls of a Blackpool cabaret to the sparkling waters of the Summer Isles with sandcastles in Scarborough and fine dining at the water's edge, there's every reason to take the coast road this weekend. Based on the personal experiences and insight of two inveterate travellers and their children, this book shares the secrets of where to be and what to see all around the British coast. Illustrated with stunning photography of the best the British seaside has to offer, you really will wish you were here...See all Product description

Go and have exactly the same weekend the authors did. More of a coffee table inspiration book.
Other ‘weekend away’ books give a better resource.
Maybe 3 stars is harsh, it’s pretty and well made, and what the authors do pick out does seem really nice, but I buy actionable content, and want ‘my’ camera to hold the stunning pictures.
Overall, this is a most attractive book which is providing us with inspiration for or coastline travels.
It's a great ideas book, and this I think is it's real strength.
It's certainly a good reference, but is no match for books like "Wild Swimming Coast" which is far more than just a swimmers Reference.
52 Weekends for me lacks real depth. After getting past the photos and poetic language (which themselves are very good) it seems to be missing much in the way of helpful information if you've decided "right, that's the place for me".
All in all it's a good book, and a lovely coffee table reference.
