Pretty Little London: Trips: Weekend Escapes From the City (Hardcover)
A curated guide to the most chic, stylish and unique trips around the UK – all within easy reach of London – from the creators of the hugely successful Instagram account @prettylittlelondon.
Sometimes even Londoners need a change of scenery – the fresh sea air and the sand between our toes, the bright lights of a new city to discover, the relaxing charm of a small town, or rolling hills with no other people in sight.
Your guides, Sara and Andrea, have scoured the UK for their favourite places to visit for those precious escapes, all a short ride away from the capital. Introducing you to the most stylish destinations, they recommend how to get the most out of each experience with the best places to eat, drink, sleep and shop, as well as providing cultural highlights and picturesque walks.
Each trip is tailored to a mood, interest or season and provides insider tips on how to make the most of your precious time, and – of course – take those all-important photos for your grid.
Whether you’re a born-and-bred Londoner bored of the same old days out, visiting from abroad and want to see the ‘real’ UK, or a London-living country bumpkin in need of inspiration – this book will offer something for you. With 50 day trips and weekend getaways, Pretty Little London: Trips is the ultimate guide to escaping the city.
