Walking and travel guides

Breedon Books' small but growing list of guidebooks is to expand again this year with the publication of new titles covering Liverpool, Manchester and London. Our A5 paperbacks are great value at £9.99 and slip easily into a pocket, while the jacketed hardbacks offer the usual Breedon high production quality.

New in 2004

London's Historic Inns and Taverns

Donald Stuart's brilliant guide reveals the places in London where you can have a pint and feel the history in the air around you.  If you want to choose an atmospheric pub to watch the Boat Race from, see a small-scale theatrical production at one of London’s historic pub theatres, or drink in the same East End pubs as Dick Turpin, then this book can point you in the right direction.

Hidden Manchester

Well-known local historian Glynis Cooper guides the reader through some of the lesser-known and, at times, bizarre corners of the city. Elegantly written and beautifully illustrated, this guide shows that Manchester is much more than just an old mill town.

Walks through History: Exploring the East End

This reissue of our enormously successful walking guide to the history of London's East End should be welcomed by anyone with an interest in the capital's history. Twelve walks explore the rich variety of the East End's past.

Walks through History: Liverpool

A selection of walks through historic Liverpool by David Lewis, who penned last year's book on Liverpool's Suburbs – an instant local bestseller. From the city's industrial heritage to walks aimed at families, there is something here for everyone.
