Publisher's Summary

Instead of scaling the Himalayas, trekking across the Antarctic or traipsing through the Brazilian rainforest, Robbie Coltrane has set himself a uniquely British challenge. Armed with a map, a classic car and a sense of adventure, he'll be exploring strange and exotic parts that are a bit closer to home. By venturing away from the tourist fast-track and on to the B roads of the UK, he'll be criss-crossing the winding back roads of our nation to discover all the people, places and events that make up Incredible Britain.

Star Trek conventions in the Black Country to gurning competitions in the North East and Burry Man whiskey-fuelled walks through Scottish towns, Robbie's drive is a determination to uncover what makes us singularly British - and our country truly incredible.

A bit ploddy

What did you like best about Robbie Coltrane's B-Road Britain? What did you like least?

I very much enjoy this genre of books having several in both audio and written format, however this did not grab me as others have done. I am not sure if it is the writer or the reading of it but it seems a bit ploddy and did not flow well.

LIght Hearted and made me laugh

I'd seen a few of the TV episodes already, but the book was, I think, better. Interesting facts intermixed with comical moments.
