How To Get Out Of London Without Really Trying
Easy escapes from London by public transport.
Just 30 minutes away are marshes, glades and ancient forests. In an hour, traditional seaside pleasures from Margate to Brighton, boating in the Thames and ancient castles, and in a little over 90 minutes are the hills and valleys of the Cotswolds.
We make it sound so easy. And with How To Get Out Of London Without Really Trying it is. To make it of use to the average Londoner (and the average tourist in London) we ruled out anywhere only accessible by car — everywhere in these pages is within two hours of a mainline London station.
With photographs throughout and an eight-page fold-out cover, this is a guide to the country we dream of while jammed into a tube carriage or dashing for a bus. And a reminder that it can be just minutes away.
