Britain's 100 Best Railway Stations Kindle Edition
About the Author
However spectacular the book's photographs, it's the author's prowess as a phrase-maker that keeps you turning the pages -- Richard Morrison ― The Times
A most beautiful book . . . full of information. I'd like to travel to every one of the stations. Simon Jenkins is a blessing to the nation, keeping an eye on our buildings and making sure they are not forgotten or neglected. -- Claire Tomalin
Jenkins has unearthed a lot of gems. The photography is stunning -- Christian Wolmar ― Spectator
This is a cracker . . . a beautiful book -- Chris Evans
Simon Jenkins extols the virtues of 100 of them, as well as offering a brief history of the rise, fall and rise again of Britain's railways. And he is the perfect person to do so. Excellent, enticing. -- Gavin Stamp ― Evening Standard
This glorious and utterly essential guide to Britain's best railway stations is also a history of some of the remarkable - but often undersung - landmarks to our social history ― The Bookseller
Masterly, perhaps a masterpiece ― Independent, Books of the Year on 'England's Thousand Best Churches'
Every house in England should have a copy of this book -- Auberon Waugh on 'England's Thousand Best Churches' ― Literary Review, Book of the Century
Jenkins is, like all good guides, more than simply informative: he can be courteous and rude, nostalgic and funny, elegant, convincing and relaxed' -- Adam Nicolson on 'England's Thousand Best Houses' ― Evening Standard --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This was bought to give as a Christmas present. Unfortunately, I did not check it till I was wrapping it, just before Christmas. The (glossy, paper)book cover was slightly damaged and the first page, the flyleaf, was torn. As it was just before Christmas, I did not have time to return the book for a replacement, which I would normally have done. I still gave it as a gift, together with an embarrassed apology...
If buying from this seller, please allow time to check your purchase carefully as you may have to return it.
This is not a book which will easily be put aside on the shelf, it will be dipped into again and again.
