Ben le Vay--expert on all things eccentric--reveals the quirky gems hidden throughout Britain: hotter than the spice girls everywhere, Norfolk's fascinating Mustard Museum; Devon's Gnome Reserve, home to over 1,000 of Britain's beloved garden characters; or the fourth Earl of Dunmore's home, The Pineapple. Ben le Vay's "Eccentric Britain" is Bradt's best-ever complication of the weird and wacky things the British do, from bog snorkeling and chimney peeping, to mud marathons and cheese rolling. Encompassing eccentric pastimes, aristocrats and bizarre last wishes, it's is both a humorous and entertaining read, as well as practical guide to some of Britain's most peculiar and unexpected monuments, gardens and museums.
