Format: Paperback
This book is really for people who would want to enjoy the scenic countryside without having the local knowledge...compliment it with a SAT NAV and thats all you need for a nice destination of your choice.
i have only yet tried 1 route which covers surrey and there were so many beautiful places just 30 miles from my house which i would have never visited had it not been for this book.Its not overloaded with information and reasonably easy to follow , just like having a personal guide for a local area but with a little effort(though well worth it)
i intend to use this book more for our future weekends and really recommend it to anyone who would like to explore the beautiful countryside of england,scotland and wales by car.

I bought this as a gift along with a couple of other books of a similar nature. To my mind this was by far the best. I hadn't realised at the time of purchase (although I should have read the description better!)that the routes are circular - I had assumed they were scenic ways to get from A to B. Circular routes may suggest that you are literally only going out for a drive - and with some of the routes as much as 90 miles, that might put some people off. However, the maps and descriptions appear good enough that you could simply use part of the route as a scenic section of a planned journey. In addition, for those drives I looked at - there were details of car parks, viewing points and places of interest along the way - which makes it a book you could use to plan a day out with a nice drive included.

The shortest route I saw was 23 miles - most seemed to be around the 50 mile mark.

The book contains information on the area and a description of the route, as well as a map and some nice photographs.

Having not used the book myself, I cannot comment on its accuracy (which is why I've only given it 4 stars at the moment) - although will feedback if I hear anything either positive or negative.

I am happy that I bought this book - it looks nice and I think will be useful too.

If you are looking for a book with detailed information on towns, villages and stop offs then this is not the right guide for you. Get AA's Great Britain.

However, if you are looking at a guide for the most amazing drives, then this is perfect. It does what it says on the tin!

I have only managed 1 drive ...lladudno and was so impressed with the drive, I can't wait to find the time to the the next one!
Amazing value. Get one if you like exploring...

A nationwide selection of journeys including photographs, local area/route maps and details of nearby attractions. Excellent quality book for the price with glossy colour finish throughout. Just need to save for the fuel costs!

I brought this book for my husband, as he often goes off with the lads in their classic cars, & he has only done one of the trips ( as it was a xmas pressy ) & its only just March now, but he throughly enjoyed it , they like to travel a fair distance & not come back on the same route, thought it was well explained & looking forward to the next trip he says maybe l will be able to go with him next time , then l will give you a better discription on the route, worth getting , happy driving
