Great British Walks

If you missed any of the issues in the Great British Walks series in the Guardian/Observer last week, you'll be happy to know we still have copies for you to have a browse through. Topics covered in the supplements are Film & Music, Art & Literature, War & Politics, Engineering and Architecture, Lost Worlds & Legends and Castles & Churches.


If anyone out there's planning a trip to London or New York this summer, you'll be interested to know that both cities have been recently twinned, the result of which is a website that provides some of the best places to visit. An extension of this site is Not For Tourists which is specifically written by locals, for locals. It reveals hidden gems that you may not find in some guidebooks and the recommendations come from experts, both bloggers and online communities. Just remember to keep it yourself...
