A guide book aimed specifically for families, full of great places for days out and all given star ratings (from 0 to 3 stars). The reviews are written by the authors, Ben and Dinah Hatch and are written in a friendly, informative manner and include personal references to what interested them there.

The book is split into six sections of England and each section has its own top 10 highlights for children before splitting the section into smaller areas and reviewing many attractions from the area. There is essential information on getting around the area by train or bus, things to see and do, fun facts about the area, along with further, more detailled information about specific towns, villages or areas. There is also details from family friendly accomadation and dining.

In all a great book to have in the glove compartment when out on family days out. The book also contains entrance fee costs and opening times, however it is advisable to double check these before making a specific journey.

Thank you to Michael at The School Run Forum for sending me this book to review.
