Brilliant Britain: A Celebration of Its Unique Traditions and Eccentricities by Jane Peyton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Brilliant Britain" is an entertaining compendium of the marvellous quirks, oddities and idiosyncrasies that define our nation and preserve us from the mundane and predictable. This book lifts the lid on Britain's rich heritage of eccentricity and diversity, exploring unique rites and peculiar traditions. Learn why you must salute the Seigneur of the Swans, how to compete at the Worm Charming Championships, and the legend behind Stargazey Pie. From the sublime to the ridiculous there's plenty to amuse and inform, with topics including Rural and City, Royal and Religious, and Hobbies and Pastimes. It is a real treat for royalists and Roundheads alike!
