At Night : A Journey Round Britain from Dusk Till Dawn, Hardback

At Night : A Journey Round Britain from Dusk Till Dawn Hardback


Quirky travel writer, Dixe Wills, uncovers the 'other' Britain - the side revealed only at night.

The night time brings calm and tranquillity but is also disorientating, making familiar surroundings foreign.

In his journey through the British landscape, Dixe tastes all that the night has to offer - the sights, the sounds, the smells, the people, the animals.

It's also a reflection on our relationship with the hours of darkness and why it is sometimes a fearful, yet always a magical place.

Discover the dark secrets of Devon, Skomer, Snowdonia, Cumbria, Scotland, London and much more.

At Night explores various aspects of unseen Britain - from its mythical beasts and wildlife spectacles, to its sleeper trains and night time sporting events.

Dixe also includes tips on walking safely in darkness and finding your way by the moon and stars, and brings up to date a literary tradition of night walking started by Charles Dickens.
