This new edition of the classic hit title Bus-Pass Britain is a colourful celebration of travelling by bus around the British Isles and features a selection of 50 favourite bus-routes submitted by members of the public in response to a Bradt competition. Their favourite bus routes reveal a wonderful mosaic of journeys across Britain, from a leafy meander through the Home Counties to the exhilarating seascapes of the northeast coast, from the wilds of Snowdonia to the Outer Hebrides. Evocative and fun, the book reveals how free bus passes have encouraged a new generation of keen explorers. Join us on the top deck for a fresh perspective on towns and villages across Britain. Each journey includes recommendations on where to stop and explore, providing details of inspiring sights, suggested walks and the best local cafes, pubs, restaurants. All the practical details: bus times, the length and duration of each route and travel connections to the start and finish, are provided and the book features a scattering of quirky stories and reflections (entitled Bus-stops) on the wonders of this more leisurely form of travel.
