The very first compendium of Britain’s most interesting diminutive attractions, written in an amusing, accessible style
‘In this great big world, there are still tiny places and things to delight in. This is a gorgeous book.’ Arthur Smith
Praised by BBC Countryfile Magazine for writing ‘intelligently and amusingly, with evident excitement and imagination’, Dixe Wills unleashes his trademark style on the tiniest attractions in Britain. Beautifully presented in full colour throughout, the book uncovers over 60 of the country’s loveliest and most diminutive places to visit. Be it a castle, cathedral, cinema or pub, a museum, theatre, ferry or football team, these little gems are all united in their lack of size, making many of them so easily overlooked they are known only to locals.
Often representing a microcosm of British local history and attitudes, many of these tiny places date from a time when big and brash was frowned upon and small was definitely beautiful. Tiny Britain puts the spotlight on Britain’s tiniest treasures for the first time and uncovers fascinating facts and anecdotes about them all.
