The guides consist of unique, authoritative descriptions of some two-hundred-plus sites to visit, complemented line drawings and photographs of individual animals and plants, spectacular photographs of landscapes, and paintings.

The entries are based on intensive travel and research by the individual authors, all seasoned travelers with first-hand experience of the country they write about. Each guide includes practical information on access, maps, and appropriate field guides. Sites range in size from a few to thousands of acres, including National Parks, nature preserves, and common land, and all are open to the public.
Anyone who enjoys travel and has an interest in nature will be enchanted by this volume, one of a new series of authoritative guidebooks from Oxford University Press. Britain boasts a fabulous diversity of landscapes, plants, birds and animals, but visitors do need to know where to go and what can be seen when they get there. The aim of this book is to act as a guide and a stimulus to the professional naturalist and enthusiastic amateur alike. Whether you're keen on seascapes, woodlands, open plains or rolling hills, there is something for everyone within its pages. An opening chapter includes a helpful overview of the ecology and wildlife of Britain, with a strong emphasis on modern conservation issues. This is followed up with a region-by-region description of easily accessible sites where the landscape, and its inhabitants, can really be appreciated at its best. From the rocky magnificence of the Scottish Highlands to the wide flat spaces of the East Anglian fenlands, each location has been beautifully illustrated with a large number of colour photographs, line drawings and wildlife paintings. These are accompanied by some useful general maps of the areas. Every featured place has been carefully chosen to reflect the full range of natural habitats that can be visited in Britain today, complete with a selection of nearby alternative sites of interest. The chapters are jam packed with practical information for the travelling naturalist including details about car parking, maps and recommendations of the best time of year to visit. This book is bound to whet the appetite of nature lovers everywhere and have them reaching for their wellington boots and binoculars. (Kirkus UK)
