Best Books on Food, Drink and Travel in the UK

If you’re planning a culinary tour of the UK, you might want to pick up some books to help with your research – or to take with you along the way. You certainly won’t be short of choice – there are titles on everything from British railways to British restaurants. You’ll also find guides on places to stay, places to eat, camping and touring. And if you’ve finished your tour and want to make some traditional British dishes now that you’re home, there are plenty of cookery titles filled with classic recipes. We're building these pages gradually, so mark them and keep coming back.
