Despite the headlines on today’s newspapers that are screaming that we will be able to travel out of the UK this summer, I suspect that for the majority of us, it’s more likely to be another year of staycationing. So the arrival of a new map of Britain on my doorstep yesterday was welcome. But it’s not just any old map… MarvellousMaps.com make a series of these detailed themed maps of the country…
…and here’s what they say about ‘The Ultimate Adventure Map‘:
Britain is beautiful, perfectly proportioned and small enough that you can explore it properly without having to blag an enormous career break. And with so much variety – superb coastline, idyllic islands, luscious landscapes and incredible views – crammed into such a small area, Britain really is the perfect adventure playground.
ST&G’s Joyously Busy Great British Adventure Map features over 2,500 of Britain’s great wild places, mountains, islands, beaches, waterways, views, eccentric events, points of interest and long-distance routes… peppered with some randomly inspiring trivia and amusingly quirky touches. (Such as… Britain’s top 50 adventure locations… the world’s best plane flight… the first and so far only time someone walked naked from Land’s End to John O’Groats…the stunning British beach that featured in a Thai tourism ad… and the longest distance ever morris danced.)
