Product description


'Eccentric look at Britain captures mood of national pride'

(Yorkshire Post)

'As exemplified during the opening ceremony of the London Olympics, the British are nothing if not quirky. If you're curious as to what's behind this national mentality, then Brilliant Britain will more than likely hold the answer. With an unparalleled assessment of bizarre British traditions and what it takes to make the perfect Chip butty, then the DNA of Britain is most certainly explained within these pages. My favourite part has to be the section on what it takes to become a champion bog snorkeller.'

(St Christopher's Live Your Life e-zine)

'Jane Peyton's punchy guide to the nation's craziest customs… Peyton's book, packed with entertaining snippets about events, languages, recipes and festivities that define our nation will make you proud to be British.'

(The Daily Mail)

'it's an eclectic and entertaining compendium that is genuinely informative and reliably amusing, useful for natives and visitors alike.'

(The Good Book Guide)
