Who better to take us on a journey round weird and wonderful Great Britain than comedy duo Mitchell and Webb? Their anecdotal tour guide dares to visit those off-the-wall locations the official travel guides forgot: unmissable parts of the country you never knew you wanted to visit (and probably still won't).David and Mark have hand-selected some of the nation's finest fictional Great Britons and sent them off to every nook and cranny of our strange little island, on a mission to unearth the very best alternative days out. Popular fashion journalist Esther Voight kicks back at Bristol CitiSpa, former transport minister James Messenger discovers the rather unconventional holiday resort of Freston-on-Sea, and Dorothea Purchase, Selfridges window-dresser, explores the stately home of Lord Goring, a known Hitler fan during the war (Dorothea naturally tries to relate to this - well, who wouldn't?). We also welcome back Ted Wilkes, our very own BBC snooker commentator, who offers up his verdict on fine dining at Dorney restaurant The Bulimic Goose. Can he stomach it?Full of wry observations, top-ten lists and Mitchell and Webbs' inimitable commentary, Great Britons' Days Out 2011 is British irreverence at its finest, venturing off the beaten track to uncover spoof destinations around the country and at the same time revealing the deepest, darkest secrets of its larger-than-life narrators.
