About this Edition

Now in its 12th Edition, this handy ‘glove box manual’ has been painstakingly compiled to help the frustrated motorist to find a refreshing and attractive alternative to motorway service stations around mainland Britain.
With some 200 ‘alternatives’ listed, this indispensable book covers pubs, inns, restaurants and places of interest just 5 minutes from a motorway junction.

Near the Motorways continues to receive high praise [see below] as a refreshing fully researched analogue alternative to the indifference of digital dogma.

The book is available to purchase via all good bookshops, and is now available to download as a handy and inexpensive e-book.
