How to Get Out of London Without Really Trying

How to Get Out of London Without Really Trying


From Herb Lester

Just 30 minutes away are marshes, glades and ancient forests. In under an hour, traditional seaside pleasures, boating in the Thames and ancient castles, and in a little over 90 minutes are the hills and valleys of the Cotswolds. How To Get Out Of London Without Really Trying rules out anywhere only accessible by car — everywhere in these pages is within two hours of a mainline London station.

With photographs throughout and an eight-page fold-out cover, this is a guide to the country we dream of while jammed into a tube carriage or dashing for a bus. And a reminder that it can be just minutes away.

Most guides try to tell you everything there is to know about a city, Herb Lester just tell you how to enjoy it. Each city is researched the old-fashioned way: asking friends, acquaintances, cab drivers and concierges for their tips and then walking, tasting, sipping, and peering into doorways and down alleys. Each guide is printed in England on 100% recycled paper.
