Great British Bus Journeys
Travels Through Unfamous Places
Shortlisted for the Authors’ Club Dolman Best First Travel Book Award, Great British Bus Journeys travels to Britain’s most unfashionable towns (using the least reliable method of transport) and uncovers the nation’s secret history. Through the eyes of David McKie, quiet, unassuming streetscapes are transformed into beguiling and eccentric places of interest. From the Forest of Bowland to Bradwell-on-Sea, McKie’s tour offers a unique survey of our land, rich with history, legend and personality.
First published by Atlantic Books in 2006.

‘A joyous book.’
Tom Fort, The Sunday Telegraph
‘Superbly entertaining . . . something to delight and surprise us at every turn. Whatever other bus you miss, be sure it is not this one.’
Simon Heffer, Country Life
The perfect companion for the modern day tripper : ‘I love this book, I keep dipping into it, and reading bits aloud to my friends.’
Val Hennessy, Daily Mail
