“Fancy a Cuppa by the Cathedral?” is an Entertaining Twist on Travel Guides

Let’s face it, when it comes to travel guides, there is a plethora to choose from. Most of them will give you a glimpse into the history and unique stories of historic spots but how many of them will also point you to a great cup of tea or coffee? “Fancy a Cuppa by the Cathedral?” is a guide to 89 of the United Kingdom’s cathedral towns and cities and the great coffee and tea shops that you’ll find nearby. Simon Duffin has put together a guide that is both readable and concise. I had quite a lovely time reading about both the cathedrals that I was planning to visit and those that I wasn’t (although there are many new places on my “want to see” list.) My only quibble with the book is that I would loved to have seen directions from each cathedral to the nearby shop but that’s because I’m directionally challenged! If you’re traveling in the UK and want a fun, informative guide that will also help you find a superior place to relax with a cuppa then I highly recommend “Fancy a Cuppa by the Cathedral.” If you’re not planning to travel soon but like to dream from your armchair, give this book a try. It’s fun and entertaining and you’ll even learn a bit about the cathedrals along the way!

  1. Sure could have used this book in August!!! Had some good cuppas, but found out that the Pims and Pear Cider both go down a treat 🙂
