About this book

From the tempestuous seas round Cape Wrath, at the north-west tip of the Scottish mainland, to the gentle creeks and estuaries of East Anglia, Britain's coastline offers an inexhaustible range of dramatic contrasts. Whether you are looking for peace and solitude or all the fun of the fair, this book will lead you there--to remote sandy coves, lofty clifftop viewpoints or an exhilarating ride on Blackpool's rollercoasters.

Starting at the Severn estuary near Bristol, this unique touring guide takes you on an epic voyage of discovery round the entire coast of England, Scotland and Wales, observing the changing scenery, and evoking the character of more than 1500 places of interest. It describes the type of beaches you will find, identifies castles and stately homes to visit, nature reserves to explore, stunning coast walks to discover and places where you may simply prefer to sit back and relax. Charming clifftop villages such as Clovelly in Devon, dramatic coastal stacks such as the Old Man of Hoy off Scotland, lively end-of-pier shows at coastal resorts such as Blackpool and expanses of golden sand such as Polzeath Beach in Cornwall illustrate the wonderful diversity of attractions that Britain's coast has to offer.
