Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher*
This is not a guidebook. And it is definitely 'not-for-parents'.
It is the real, inside story about one of the world's most exciting places - Great Britain. In this book you'll hear fascinating tales about kids down the mines, battles on the football field, secret stones and kings and queens galore. Check out cool stories about a famous spy, an underwater monster, a flying scotsman and a flying great grandmother. You'll find hats and bats, crazy laws, royal limos and some amazing legends.
