A perfect present, Simon Jenkins has written a marvellous book on what he considers to be the 100 best views of England. And he doesn’t just hand you the views on a plate, he doesn’t ruin the surprise for you, for most of the 100 best views there aren’t photos of the view itself – you can go there and discover it for yourself.

Simon gives you the history of the area, explains the beauty of it and why he has chosen it. He has gone off the beaten track to find you some really amazing places, which you may not even find in tourist books.

A gem of a book. There are five copies available in the Surrey Libraries network.
