How to make the most of those 48 hours you have in England
Quick: You’re a tourist in London with little time and no car— but you do have a desire to explore the countryside. So what do you do?
Pick one of the 60+ castles, museums, gardens, caves and forests featured in the new guidebook How to Get Out of London Without Really Trying ($19.37, amazon.ca). All the destinations—a Gothic revival country estate called Strawberry Hill in Twickenham caught our eye—are easily reached via public transit in less than two hours. C.R.
