    1. Chesshyre picked out some of the least likely spots in the U. K. anyone would deliberately visit and went there as a visitor. He managed to find local boosters in all of them, and never really ran out of things to see early, even if a couple of the destinations proved challenging in that regard; I found this a balanced picture, as he didn't ignore the more troubled areas. Most importantly, he succeeded is keeping me interested in continuing to hear about these places right to the end. I'm looki [...]

    2. A really thought-provoking stroll through the highways and byways of unsung Britain! Tom Chesshyre, a travel writer who is used to the best locales, decides to choose the places that everyone in Britain says should never be a holiday destination - Hull, Slough, Derry, Milton Keynes, Norwich, Coventry, etc. By taking a weekend away to all these places, Tom puts fresh eyes onto the people and the place. He digs into the current social perspectives - as to why this place is so ill-considered - and [...]

    3. I have a weakness for travelogues that go to unexciting, unexotic places: Bill Bryson, Stuart Maconie, that guy who went to all the places on the Monopoly board, the fellow who travelled round Ireland with a fridge, the bloke who went to every country in Europe on Ryanair.Now there's this guy, who’s travelling to the unloved, the unvisted, the not-on-the-tourist map towns and cities of England: Hull, Slough, Milton Keynes, Port Talbot, Derry, Norwich, Salford, Coventry, Croydon.I like the prem [...]

    4. Of all the places to go on holiday the places that would not be top of the list include Slough, Croydon and of course Hull.But Tom Chesshyre has decided, with sometime uncontrolled laughter from his partner, to visit some of these unloved places. He goes to all of the dozen places with an open mind, but does take the precaution of contacting the local tourist agencies first so he maximises his experience at the locations. There are some moments that make you smile when reading it, there are some [...]

    5. Like most of my books, I picked this one up in a charity shop. It looked like it'd be easy to pick up and dip into - ideal holiday reading in other words. Some time ago I bought a book called 'Bollocks To Alton Towers' which I thought this might make a companion piece to. It's much duller. An easy enough read though.

    6. he did n't like Coventry much,Milton Keynes was a revelation,Londonderry looks interesting-Basically towns and cities most people would not think of touristing.Thought provoking.

    7. An entertaining read about going to the worst places in England. A funny read but also proves that you can find the best in somewhere if you look and keep your mind open!
