Gear review: Philips Camping And Caravanning Atlas Of Britain

b0f5740b-fca0-4ce8-8a42-7edffe6a0878

In these days of satnav and Google maps, you’d be forgiven for thinking the traditional printed road atlas has had its day.

But while it’s easy to stick a postcode into a device and hit the road, we always have an map close to hand on big trips.

There’s nothing quite like the perspective you get from looking at a proper map and if you want to deviate from the GPS-determined route for any reason, an atlas is invaluable.

And let’s not forget the joy that comes from scouring the index for the country’s funniest place names (current favourites are Great Snoring, Blubberhouses and Crackpot).

This hefty book, created for campers in association with the Camping and Caravanning Club, is a classic of its kind.

It features the locations of more than 2,300 campsites and includes 100 town and city plans as well as a six-page route planner.

The mapping is clear and easy to read with loads of useful details, such as local attractions, and there’s some essential information about bridge heights and weight limits included for caravanners and motorhomers.

Don’t leave home without one.

Expect to pay £24.99
