Bizarre England : Discover the Country's Secrets and Surprises, Hardback

Bizarre England : Discover the Country's Secrets and Surprises Hardback



An alternative journey around England, visiting the sights that are definitely not on the average tourist trail. In this charming book, David Long introduces the reader to some of the oddest and most interesting sights in England, such as: * Devon's Gnome Reserve * Britain's smallest pub * A church for dragon slayers * A subterranean ballroom * The Phone Box Museum and much more.

From weird buildings to eccentric museums and from mystical superstitions to remnants of magical rites, this is a guide to England like no other. Praise for David Long's previous title, Bizarre London: 'Bizarre London pummels its bantamweight rivals with knockout clouts of trivia that even this weary correspondent hadn't encountered before.' The Londonist 'The best possible start for anyone who wishes to get off the beaten track and under the skin of the hidden city that is modern-day London.' Guardian 'David Long's intriguing ...survey - an attempt to impose order on chaos - lists hundreds of little courtyards and alleys, many almost forgotten among the banks and businesses.' Financial Times
