Britain According to Very British Problems

Rob Temple

Very British Problems are what make us so, well, British. And what better place to get to the heart of these problems than, urm, Britain?

Starting in Land's End and heading all the way up to John O'Groats (via the Irish Sea), this tour of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland covering everything from the national sports of apologising, queueing and bog snorkelling to our national cuisine of chips, bread rolls and... chips in bread rolls. You'll take in sights such as Stonehenge (see the iconic prop from Spinal Tap in all its glory), Loch Ness (legend has it there is no monster) and Platform 9 3/4 (after a few hours waiting in a railway station, have your photo taken next to a brick wall) all whilst looking for somewhere decent to stop and eat your packed lunch.

Britain is a maze of idiosyncrasies, loveable foibles and outright eccentricities and Rob Temple is here to reveal them in all their glory.
