With over 500 stunning colour photographs and clear Collins road mapping, Where to See Wildlife in Britain and Ireland allows nature-lovers to plan anything from a fun day out for the family to a two–week tour of Britain’s wildlife treasures.

Review:

Praise for Christopher Somerville’s previous books:

Robert Macfarlane, Sunday Times Book Review
‘The book is a success of organisation … an exemplary piece of book craft … The best guidebooks … inspire adventure, improvisation and the learning that comes from discovery. Somerville's book is in that valuable tradition.’

Sunday Telegraph
‘Christopher Somerville's magnificent gazetteer to Britain and Ireland's wild places could not be more timely’

Colin Tudge, Financial Times
‘At once informative and poetic … those [places] I know of are gems. […] I've got a lot of books on wildlife and this is already among the select.’

National Trust Magazine
‘Follow in Somerville's footsteps – we promise it'll be the perfect antidote to a week in the office.’

About the Author:
