Pier Review: A Road Trip in Search of the Great British Seaside

by Jon Bounds and Danny Smith - £8.99  Summersdale Publishers (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781849538114 | ISBN 10: 1849538115

Fifty-five piers. Two weeks. One eccentric road trip.
 
Before the seaside of their youth disappears forever, two friends from the landlocked Midlands embark on a peculiar journey to see all the surviving pleasure piers in England and Wales. With a clapped-out car and not enough cash, Jon and Danny recruit Midge, a man they barely know, to be their driver, even though he has to be back in a fortnight to sign on...
 
Join Jon and Danny as they take a funny and nostalgic look at Britishness at the beach, amusement in the arcades and friendship on the road.
