"Great British Bus Journeys" travels to Britain's most unfashionable towns (using the least reliable method of transport) and uncovers the nation's secret history. Through the eyes of David McKie, quiet, unassuming streetscapes are transformed into beguiling and eccentric places of interest: from the Forest of Bowland to Bradwell-on-Sea, McKie's tour offers a unique survey of our land, rich with history, legend and personality.

Review quote

"'I love this book, I keep dipping into it, and reading bits aloud to my friends, most of whom, alas, haven't been on a bus for years. The loss is theirs, as McKie's highly original publication so brilliantly demonstrates.' Val Hennessy, Daily Mail 'A joyous book.' Tom Fort, Sunday Telegraph 'A copy deserves to be placed in every bus station in the land.' Travis Elborough, Guardian 'Mesmerising... the route's circuitous sweep takes in an unexpected panorama of British life and history... a delightful gallimaufry.' Nick Groom, Independent 'Superbly entertaining... something to delight and surprise us at every turn. Whatever other bus you miss, be sure it is not this one.' Simon Heffer, Country Life"
