Mad Dogs & Englishmen Hardback Book

A year of things to see and do in England

Tom Jones, author of Tired of London, Tired of Life, has compiled thirty years of exploring England into this beautifully produced book. Divided into months, each with a lyrical introduction, the book travels the length and breadth of Britain, describing local traditions, recommended places to eat and drink and the finest sights to be seen.

In January alone, no less than 31 events, places and traditions are listed, enlivened with photographs and illustrations, printed in soft shades of teal and pewter enlivened with lime green and rich red, and laid out in an easy to browse manner. As the author puts it in the introduction:

Whilst it can be driven end to end in half a day, England offers almost unlimited landscapes, a rich cultural heritage, and a diversity of opportunities any nation would struggle to match.

This square format hardback book bears testament to our glorious country, and provides hours of informative entertainment, perfect for curling up on the sofa with and planning expeditions and days out.

A lovely gift for anyone who enjoys driving and road trips, especially fathers, mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers who enjoy the delights that England has to offer, this book makes a welcome stocking filler at Christmas or an inspired birthday, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift.

Should you choose not to pay that surcharge we will refund your payment in full and cancel your order. Should we receive no reply to this request we will hold your order for seven days and then refund your payment in full and cancel your order.
