Britain and Ireland’s Best Wild Places captures the zeitgeist for staycations and exploring the UK's great outdoors, with 500 essential journeys exploring storm-battered headlands, hidden waterfalls, tumbledown cottages, the ruins of haunted chapels deep in forgotten woods, medieval Green Men, rusting sea-forts tottering on sandbanks, old mines and quarries being recaptured by nature…

Britain and Ireland are full of wild places, some remote but many often astonishingly close to home. Christopher Somerville has travelled through fields and green lanes, in forests and mountains and on lonely coasts, seeking out his favourite untamed treasures. Now in paperback with beautiful photographs, this book will show how anyone can discover a piece of the wild for themselves.

Christopher Somerville has spent twenty-five years walking the country lanes, back hills and wildernesses of Britain and Ireland and believes he has learnt most things of importance while outdoors. The author of Coast and Coast: The Journey Continues, which accompanied the BBC2 series, he writes regularly on country walks for publications including The Daily Telegraph and Saga.
