As I write this it’s 30 degrees and sultry outside – the kind of day that makes you wish you were on a beach somewhere exotic. If you’re about to head to that exotic beach, or similar holiday destination, you probably ought to take a guide or two to help shape and inform your vacation. In fact, two guides would be a good number, because we have a buy one, get one half price offer on all UK and foreign maps and guides until August 19.
If you haven’t made your mind up yet and are looking for last-minute destination inspiration, here are the top five best-selling travel guides at Jarrold over the past few months, one chart for foreign guides (I really wouldn’t have guessed Menorca and Ibiza would have topped that!) and another for British ones, excluding the Norwich and Norfolk guides which obviously out-sell those for other regions.
