This is his first e-book.
Places featured:

Gareth writes:
“This book arose from my travels around the UK over the past 10 years, to gather information for a series I write for the Mail on Sunday.

Though I enjoy foreign travel, there is something peculiarly appealing about the short break on home soil. You don’t need to queue through immigration to visit a place which can be singularly different from your home town, city or village.

“I’ve had deeply enjoyable days away in places that are no more than an hour’s drive from home.

“The articles here are meant to help you choose a short visit – it could be a day trip, or the classic Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon weekend – to a selection of towns and cities that I’ve written about.

“The articles, based on pieces of mine published in the Mail on Sunday, have been revised and updated, and are drawn from my own visits to and research on each of the locations.”

Footnote:

You may be wondering about the price. I decided to fix it at, roughly, the cost of a good cup of coffee or a weekend quality newspaper. I’d even like to think that readers might want to download the book in a coffee shop in one of the places I list, to inform, and inspire, their visit.
