From Land's End to John O'Groats, this Sceptred Isle is riddled with what are laughably referred to as 'attractions'. Rubbish tourism is a proud British tradition, and from Stonehenge to Madam Tussaud's, Shakespeare's birthplace to the Harry Potter Tour, and model villages to a museum dedicated to pencils, Crap Days Out is the quintessential collection of places that will ruin a perfectly good bank holiday.

About the author

Gareth Rubin had the idea for this book after a horrific date with a Polish girl during which she attempted to engage a Russian couple in a fist-fight. He writes for a number of newspapers including the Observer, Express, Telegraph and Main on Sunday about travel, property, the arts and personal finance. He recently completed his first novel All Honourable Men. Jon Parker is a freelance journalist published in the Guardian, The Times, Independent and Telegraph, as well as writing for television news. He got involved with this book after trekking all the way to Stonehenge to find it's hardly bigger than the one in Spinal Tap. Bloody druids.
