The Most Amazing Places on Britains Coast and The Most Amazing Places to Visit in Britain (Readers Digest, 9.99 each)


Two nicely put together pocket guides with some good photography (although A5-size books can never really do justice to excellent pictures) and useful information about places to visit in Suffolk, as well as the rest of Britain. I like the latter especially, introducing me to the Tattingstone Wonderfrom the back it looks like a pair of ordinary red brick cottages, from the front a medieval parish church. Apparently the owner of the property wanted to give his guests something dignified to look at from the windows of his mansion. RB




True Links: An illustrated Guide to the Glories of the Worlds 246 Links Courses by George Peper and Malcolm Campbell (Artisan, 30)


The golfers in our office have been eagerly awaiting this mighty volume but of our local courses only Royal West Norfolk and Hunstanton get a couple of pages each and Suffolks Felixstowe Ferry a very brief mention. Still, this illustrated guide to 246 of the worlds best links courses is a feast of gorgeous photography, a celebration of those undulating and exposed seaside courses that really test your game. Its written by two former editors of Golf magazine and Golf Monthly and as Sir Michael Bonallack, former secretary of the Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews says on the accompanying press release: If you have not already played them, this book will make you want to do so.



England: The Panoramas by Mark Denton (Constable, 30)


Acclaimed landscape photographer Mark Denton brings together a unique volume of 100 of the greatest landscape views in England. Its a beautiful book and a project that was five years in the making. Southwold, Cambridge, Brancaster Staithe and Ely are included from East Anglia but rather surprisingly not the home of racing, Newmarket. Thats just a very minor grumble as it is a simply stunning collection of panoramic urban, rural and coastal images.
