Description

A Ford Transit van, a 17,000-mile epic road trip round the coastline of Britain and Ireland, and a once in a lifetime chance for adventure and travel, exploration and discovery, creating a brand new and unmissable travel guide revealing some of the best kept secrets into the colourful history of Britain, its wildlife, and its people. Starting in London, Chris Hilsden heads north towards Scotland, following what has been described as 'the most fascinating coastline in the world'. He is looking for adventure and travel at a different pace, trusting to roads less travelled for exploration and discovery, and the fascinating stories that make up the culture and history of Britain. From a 1930s Czech new town in Essex to the ruinous castle that inspired Dracula, from the miles of tunnels under Liverpool to the twisting, flower bedecked lanes of Donegal, this travel guide dares to look at life from a new angle, with no deadlines, no hotel bookings to make, no campsites to reach, just an epic road trip, beautiful scenery, and the distant horizon.show more
