It is widely recognized that travel and tourism can have a high environmental impact and make a major contribution to climate change. It is therefore vital that ways to reduce these impacts are developed and implemented. 'Slow travel' provides such a concept, drawing on ideas from the 'slow food' movement with a concern for locality, ecology and quality of life. The aim of this book is to define slow travel and to discuss how some underlining values are likely to pervade new forms of sustainable development. It also aims to provide insights into the travel experience; these are explored in several chapters which bring new knowledge about sustainable transport tourism from across the world. In order to do this the book explores the concept of slow travel and sets out its core ingredients, comparing it with related frameworks such as low-carbon tourism and sustainable tourism development. The authors explain slow travel as holiday travel where air and car transport is rejected in favour of more environmentally benign forms of overland transport, which generally take much longer and become incorporated as part of the holiday experience. The book critically examines the key trends in tourism transport and recent climate change debates, setting out the main issues facing tourism planners. It reviews the potential for new consumption patterns, as well as current business models that facilitate hyper-mobility. This provides a cutting edge critique of the 'upstream' drivers to unsustainable tourism. Finally, the authors illustrate their approach through a series of case studies from around the world, featuring travel by train, bus, cycling and walking. Examples are drawn from Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. Cases include the Eurostar train (as an alternative to air travel), walking in the Appalachian Trail (US), the Euro-Velo network of long-distance cycling routes, canoe tours on the Gudena River in Denmark, sea kayaking in British Columbia (Canada) and the Oz Bus Europe to Australia.

This new second edition of Suffolk, part of Bradt's distinctive Slow series of regional UK guides, remains the only full-blown standalone guide to this gentle but beguiling county. Written by expert local author Laurence Mitchell, this is the guide of choice for anyone wanting to get under the skin of the region and discover what makes it tick. This new edition offers a very personal view of the county, providing up-to-date information on the best places to visit, stay and eat, covering not just popular sights but focusing also on those places beyond the usual tourist trail. Suffolk's popularity as a destination is not waning, and events such as the Latitude festival in July or the Aldeburgh Music Festival at Britten's Snape Maltings, not to mention the use of the RSPB's Minsmere Reserve as a base for BBC's Springwatch, are all helping to keep the county's profile raised. Southwold, Aldeburgh, Orford, Walberswick and Dunwich are all covered, as is the great variety of landscapes, from undulating farmland and sandy heaths to extensive forests such as Rendlesham and Thetford in the Brecks, important nature reserves and the soft, dreamy coastal landscapes of river estuaries, remote marshes, reed-beds, beaches, shingle banks, sand spits and dunes. Also included are Constable Country and the Stour valley, Bury St Edmunds, Framlingham, Bungay, Beccles and Halesworth, plus information on Suffolk's wealth of medieval churches and its Anglo-Saxon heritage, notably the royal ceremonial burial site at Sutton Hoo and the reconstructed Anglo-Saxon village at West Stow. Bradt's Suffolk makes a virtue of being selective and pointing the reader to the cream of the area. It is organised into locales to encourage 'stay put' tourism, with the opportunity to explore each locale thoroughly. There are also plenty of options for car-free travel: walking, cycling, river boats and local buses and trains. Written in an entertaining style, and offering a personal narrative, authoritative information and interesting anecdotes, Bradt's Suffolk is the ideal companion with which to discover this charming corner of England.

Slow Norfolk, although selective, includes the whole of Norfolk from Great Yarmouth and the Broads to the east to the Fens of the far west, from the iconic North Norfolk coast to the Breckland region to the south. The Norfolk landscape is far more variable than many imagine and not quite as flat as it is usually reputed to be. The North Norfolk coast, considered to be one of the most beautiful stretches in England, is also a hugely important habitat for wildlife especially migrating birds. The interior of the county tends to be more overlooked yet also much to offer, especially in terms of landscape, historic monuments and characterful market towns. The county has a rich mix of architectural variety, with numerous country houses, medieval churches, Roman forts and Norman castles. The county capital Norwich is an important centre for art and culture, with its acclaimed Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and the annual, highly rated Norwich and Norfolk Festival.
