    Description'The best time to visit is in May Week (which actually falls in June). Town and river are then their most attractive, there is health on the breeze and vigour on the limb, and the undergraduate, freed from his examinations, is at liberty to devote himself to the sporting events of the 'week". Drawing on a delightfully nostalgic view of the experience of travelling in Britain during the age of the motor coach and hotel tariffs at 12/6 for a bedroom and breakfast, the "Ward Lock 'Red' Guides" offer local information on everything from Angling Rules to population figures and Post Office opening times. With full histories of each university college the early 1950s editions offer a unique window into the past as well as being surprisingly readable. With wonderfully quaint details on what appealed to the British holidaymaker at the time, the 'Red' Guides are perfect gifts for anyone who loves the nostalgia of a gentler by-gone age. The first selection of eight titles includes: London, Edinburgh, Oxford, Bath, The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales and North Cornwall. Each title has a newly-written introduction from a locally-known author.
