A first-hand look into Britain's unlikely travel destinations In a mad adventure that took him from Hull to Hell, Tom Chesshyre visited secret spots of Britain in search of the least likely holiday destinations. He experienced the real Coronation Street in Salford, explored Blade Runner Britain in Port Talbot, discovered that everything’s quite green in Milton Keynes, met real-life superheroes and many a suspicious landlady, and watched a football match with celebrity chef Delia Smith in Norwich. With a light and edgy writing style the author peels back the skin of the unfashionable underbelly of Britain, and embraces it all with the spirit of discovery.
