Ward Lock Red Guides
Re-issued earlier this year, these classic 1950s travel books will keep nostalgic armchair travellers happy for hours, as well as those interested in local history. With fold-out maps and adverts from the era alongside the text, they're a reminder of how much travel trends have changed over the last half century. Current titles include Bath, Cambridge, Edinburgh, London, North Cornwall, Oxford, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.
