Any time spent in Bath is a pleasure. The historic city buzzes with vitality and its accolade as one of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites is confirmed by the annual arrival of some four million visitors from Britain and all over the world. Whereas most accounts of Bath's history focus on the Roman and Georgian periods, skipping over much of the rest, this Traveller's History offers a chronological survey of the entire span of Bath's existence, supplemented by lively accounts of several of its many delights - its food, its fashions, its theatrical and artistic heritage, its music and its memorials. Almost two-thirds of the city centre is a conservation area, the largest in Britain. Some six thousand of Bath's buildings are 'listed' as structures of historical or architectural significance. One in six of the city's houses was built before 1850, almost half before the twentieth century. The city's highlights include not only the Roman baths, the elegant Pump Room and the majestic abbey, its historic theatre, two major art galleries and half a dozen museums but also one of only four bridges in the world with shops on both sides and Britain's last remaining Georgian pleasure gardens. With the opening of Sir Nicholas Grimshaw's striking new Thermae Spa complex Bath entered the twenty-first century by reasserting its original identity as a uniquely therapeutic location. This highly readable guide is all a visitor will need, it covers all attractions and suggests walking tours easily achievable in a short visit plus an entertaining picture of the many famous, eccentric and talented people who made their mark upon the city.
Features information about what art to see, what to buy and where to eat and drink for the discerning short stay visitor to have a great time in Venice.
The broad sweep of Scotland's story, both past and present, is chronicled by one of the country's best historians. Andrew Fisher begins with Scotland's first people and their culture and ends with Devolution and the setting up of the first Scottish parliament since 1707. Before the arrival of the Vikings in 900, Scotland was a land of romantic kingdoms and saints, gradually overtaken by more pragmatic struggles for power. Centuries of bloody strife lead up to the turbulent years of Mary Queen of Scots, the Calvinistic legacy of John Knox, and the bitterness of final defeat. The dreams of the Jacobites are contrasted with the cruel reality of the end of the Stewarts and the Act of Union with England. Scotland then saw an age of industry and despoliation. The result was much emigration and obsession with the nation's past which glorified the legends of the Highlander and the Clans. In this century, the loss of identity and drift to the south have perhaps been checked at last by a new step forward for Scotland as a result of its Devolution, the setting up of a Scottish parliament, and the symbolic return of the Stone of Destiny. This handy paperback is fully indexed with a chronology of major events and a gazetteer cross-referenced to the main text. Illustrated with line drawings and historical maps.
A Traveller's History of Ireland gives a full and accurate portrait of Ireland from prehistory right up to the present. The story opens with mysterious early Celtic Ireland where no Roman stood, through Saint Patrick's mission to Ireland which began the process of making it 'an island of saints', to the legendary High King Brian Boru and his struggle with Viking and Irish enemies alike. It moves on through the arrival of the Norman 'Strongbow' in the twelfth century, and the beginnings of the difficult and tragic Anglo-Irish relationship. Great historical figures like Hugh O'Neill, Cromwell, and Jonathan Swift figure as well as ordinary people like the Londonderry 'apprentice boys' who helped change the course of Irish history. A Traveller's History of Ireland then takes the reader into modern times, with the great revolts of 1798, the horrors of the Potato Famine, and the careers of the leading constitutional nationalists O'Connell and Parnell. The final chapter of the book fully covers the division of the island into two separate administrations: the Republic of Ireland and the six Northern counties which remain part of the United Kingdom with a newly-revived assembly.Illustrated throughout with maps and line drawings, A Traveller's History of Ireland will help you discover Ireland's past and present.

BBC Countryfile Magazine praised Dixe Wills for writing 'intelligently and amusingly, with evident excitement and imagination', qualities that he brings to Tiny Campsites. Here he presents 80 of the loveliest and most diminutive places to camp in Britain, many of which are known only to locals. These stunning little places to pitch are found on farms, in woods, on clifftops and in beautiful back gardens; they may be under the boughs of an apple tree in a private orchard or on thebanks of a river. Each entry features a quick-reference guide to facilities, pubs that serve food, shops where you can stock up on provisions and local attractions, and there's a useful Ordnance Survey map to guide you in.
"2000 Plus Wales" is a comprehensive, full-colour map of all Welsh summits over 2000ft based on information from "The Mountains of England and Wales - Volume 1 Wales" by John and Anne Nuttall - an invaluable tool for outdoor enthusiasts to plan their next ascent and track their progress. This first edition (and companion to "2000 Plus England" also by the same author), depicts all 190 summits in Wales over 2000ft, comprising 93 main peaks and 97 subsidiary tops. Also included for the enthusiast are 91 minor summits over 2000ft but with insufficient re-ascent to merit similar status. Mountain profiles are interspersed between a comprehensive list of all summits, providing an instantly recognisable silhouette of the mountain ranges and their relative positions. The list also includes heights and a symbol to capture summits attained. Layer tints highlight the relief of the rugged mountain landscape of Wales and the geographical distribution of all summits. All this within a glossy protective card cover. Further information includes road and rail routes; hostels; coverage of relevant Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 Landranger maps; a simple co-ordinate reference system to relate the summits to the map and vice versa. This is the most comprehensive map of the Welsh mountains available. To promote safety in the hills, information about Mountain Rescue England and Wales (MREW) can be found on the inside cover.
