The UK is a surprisingly rural and unspoilt country, despite having one of the highest population densities in Europe. Stay on the beaten track and you may never experience this, but if you take the trouble to explore some of the outermost nooks and crannies of our island nation, you may be pleasantly surprised at what you discover.
Our month-long trip around Scotland last year was proof of this; we saw places and had experiences that could not have been lived anywhere else in the UK. 52 Weekends By The Sea captures this sense of wonder and discovery perfectly, and takes readers on a picturesque circumnavigation of the UK’s amazing coastline, calling in at 52 of the most remarkable and unspoilt destinations the UK has to offer.
The books is lavishly illustrated with Craig Easton’s photos and the attractions of each location are irresistibly highlighted by author Brigid Benson – whether it’s scenery, fresh local produce, or history that motivates your travels.
The majority of these destinations are feasible for a weekend trip and all are manageable in a long weekend – we’ve been to quite a few of them in our motorhome and the vast majority do live up to expectations. 52 Weekends By The Sea is beautifully presented and a pleasure to browse – ideal coffee table inspiration for your next long weekend away.
