I've always had a great love of our fantastic British Coastline. It has always been my ambition to carry out the complete tour. Perhaps one day I will achieve the ambition! For the meantime I will have to make do with the books and the DVD's! I notice that the first book "coast" received some criticism by the reviewers here on Amazon so I was keen to check out if the 'grumbles' applied to the 2nd volume "The Journey Continues". As far as I'm concerned I have no complaints at all...this is a wonderful book. It contains 16 area tours in all starting from the south coast working in a clockwise fashion from Dover ending up and finishing in London. The Channel Islands, Ireland, Outer Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland are included. There is a gazetter organised by region with maps and recommendations of where to go, what to visit and a wide range of things to do. As per the TV series and DVD's the photography and narrative are excellent. Strongly recommended.
