This entertaining journey around the county lists every brewer Simon could find - 166 at the last count - and features lots of his favourite beers and some of the best places to drink them. Send some goodbye texts to unbelieving friends? This is an entertaining, informative and at times surprising tour of one of Britain's most vibrant metropolises. He sees all these time scales clearly: from the Tyndale monument commenced 1863 he looks upstream to a power station opened in 1967 and a castle started in 1067. The author has travelled the length and breadth of England to select his thousand best churches. Organised by county, each church is described - often with delightful asides - and given a star-rating from one to five. Rather, his virtues are the well-turned, pragmatic English sentence in the plain style: decisive, unsentimental, well-informed, smart. Was Thatcherism a mere medicine for an ailing economy or a complete political philosophy? Make sure you've got clean underwear on?

In this illustrated, first-of-its-kind guide, bestselling author Simon Jenkins picks the very best views from North East England, including Bempton cliffs, Gordale Scar, Hebden Bridge, Richmond, Rievaulx, Saltaire, Whitby Harbour, Durham, Hadrian's Wall, Lindisfarne and Newcastle's Grey Street,. Covering the key events, eras and individuals, Jenkins' portrait of the continent could not be more timely - or more masterful.
