Slow Norfolk and Suffolk Local, Characterful Guides to Britain's Special Places by Laurence Mitchell

Laurence Mitchell, long-time resident of Norfolk, invites travellers to the region to take a leisurely sojourn around both the well known sights and off-the-beaten track secrets in a personal tour that takes in the coast and villages, remote marshes, beaches, shingle banks, towns and cities of Norfolk and Suffolk. Conservation projects, boat trips, cycle and walking tours, wildlife and bird watching and distinctive vernacular architecture are just some of the attractions which Laurence describes in his distinctive voice, as well as all the practical details you need for an easy relaxing break. What's more, the unique accommodation descriptions from Alastair Sawday mean that you can be sure of a truly 'slow' visit.


'Slow guides take time to point the way.'
Hugh Fearnley

-Whittingstall 'This book, as much an armchair read as a practical guide, delves into fact and fiction with humour, affection and gusto

's Talk 'The Slow guides are the perfect travel companion - warm, witty and stuffed with insider knowledge. I can't think of a better way to unlock the joys of Britain.'
Carl Honore, author of In Praise of Slow

'This book is packed with beautiful pictures and information on Suffolk's history, walks and places to stay as well as all the practical details you need for an easy, relaxing break. The author lets the reader in on all the well-known sights as well as off-the-beaten-track secrets.'
