    I was looking for a little book of Day trips out of London and this seems to be just what I want. It is clear, concise, and easy to read. it offers hints andd travel for both public transport and car along with places to eat, etc. I feel it will be of great help on our trip in June as well as giving me ideas of things to do outside the city for a day or 2. It is small enough to fit in my day bag easily.
