Slow is a new series from Bradt that encourages visitors to slow down and savor the best of Britain's rural destinations. The series' three launch titles are Slow Devon, Slow Norfolk & Suffolk, and Slow Yorkshire. Each is written by an author resident to the area, and delves into unsung delights and personal favorites not covered by other guidebooks, from conservation projects to boat trips, wildlife holidays, restaurants using locally sourced ingredients and scenic walks. The series is published in conjunction with Alastair Sawday, whose book Go Slow England is drawn from a nationwide database of restaurants, accommodation providers and other businesses.
Hilary Bradt is the founder of Bradt Travel Guides; she has recently moved to Devon.
