Overview

The only guidebook you'll ever need. Ever.
Think of Great Britain and what comes to mind? Tea. Caravans. The Queen. Bradley Wiggins. Stiff upper lip. More tea. Maybe some cricket. Rain. Ooh, and a drop more tea. Lovely.

But Britain is changing — in these modern times the very essence of the country is shifting before us, and it's handy to have a reminder about exactly what it is that makes the country what it is. Which is where Top Gear comes in!

With its canny mix of charm, tact and wit, Top Gear is in the perfect position to take you on a whirlwind tour of these fair isles, offering a handy guide to all things British. From caravans to vicars, motorways to country pubs, cups of tea to endless, pointless conversations about the weather, no aspect of Britishness is left unexamined — and with Clarkson, Hammond and May on hand to offer words of wisdom, what could possibly go wrong?
