Hot on the success of Wilderness Weekends, one of the top selling guides in 2015, award-winning travel writer Phoebe Smith returns with more great outdoor experiences tailored not just for the hard-core wilderness enthusiast but for novices and newbie hillwalkers alike. Take a friend, or take the kids - or both! - and climb one of Phoebe's favourite hills. There are 60 of them detailed in this easy-to-follow guide which champions a new easy-access approach to hillwalking. With 20 hills each in England, Wales and Scotland, from just 120 metres to a manageable 609 metres, and from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands, there's bound to be a hill for you. 'When it comes to mountains society seems to be obsessed with height' says Phoebe Smith. 'But those who shun peaks based on measurement are truly missing out. Following on from the success of Wilderness Weekends, people are always asking me where they can take a friend, partner or young child that will help convince them that the outdoors - and hills - are worth the effort. Answering that need is this book, it's all about minimum effort for maximum results.' Each walk also includes tips on safety, kit, weather, walking responsibly, maps, tackling hills sensibly, and taking children, friends and reluctant walkers.

Driving is one of the most ideal ways to discover the riches that Britain has to offer. Small towns, delicate fields of wildflowers, and isolated ruins are easily explored at leisure with a car. Frommer's Britian's Best-Loved Driving Tours is descriptions, directions and tips for thirty diverse trips through the countryside and urban areas of Britain. If you've read or heard the legends of King Arthur, you'll surely want to visit the town of Camelford (thought by some to have been the original Camelot) and the weathered cliffs of Tintagel on a drive through part of the West of England. A Central English tour also has special literary connections. On a drive through the rural heart of England, you can visit the unspoilt market town of Ledbury, which played host to Robert Browning and William Wordsworth. Farther on, you can visit Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon birthplace and watch the first-rate Royal Shakespeare Company perform Shakespeare. Authors Roy Woodcock and John McIlwain have included attractions to suit all ages and interests. If your kids are getting restless on the drive around Cornwall, they suggest a stop at the legendary Last Labyrinth at Land's End, where they can scramble through the maze. If you want to stretch your legs, Woodcock and McIlwain include many top walks and hikes in each area, like the Cleveland Way walk which curves around the moors on the border of Scotland. You'll enjoy all the top sights and then have the flexibility to enjoy the hidden pleasures of each destination. Our suggested routes include scenic detours and stops for spectacular views, easy walks, shopping, dining, and fun breaks for travelers with children. With dozens of driving tour options, detailed and color-coded maps, and exact, directions, distances and driving times, Frommer's Britain's Best-Loved Driving Tours is the only guide you'll need to see the best of Britain by car.
