Bustling markets and picturesque fairs are compelling; they draw you to browse among the colourful stalls or watch the different entertainments on show. Collins Guide to the Markets & Fairs of Great Britain is an invaluable guide book which features over 250 of the most popular and interesting markets and fairs in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands. These include general markets of particular ionterst (often still held in ancient market squares), livestock sales, antiques and bric-a-brac markets, plus many attractive and unusual seasonal or annual fairs.

The author also provides a fascinating history of the origins of markets and fairs in Britain, describing many of the distinctive customs and traditions associated with them, and explains how markets and fairs are run today.
