FAQs

How much is delivery?

Delivery is free and all books are sent via Royal Mail Second Class post. Due to the current level of demand, we will dispatch your order 3-5 days after you place your order.

How big are the books?

The books are A5 and each have 250 glossy pages.

How do you choose your recommendations?

You may wonder how we decide which places to feature in our guides. We do our research and speak to the people who live there, we believe there is nothing better than local knowledge and we back this up by visiting each place ourselves to experience each one and to take our own photos.

Who is Best of England?

Best of England is a small, independent British company aiming to make the best quality, most useful and beautiful products we can. We strive to champion the other small businesses who are as passionate about what they are doing as we are. We take all our own photos and visit each place we recommend and don’t charge the businesses we feature to be included.

What is your environmental policy?

We print our books in England with FSC certified paper from responsible sources. We selected the Royal Mail to deliver our books, as we think it is better for the environment to use the postman over delivery vans. We also use eco-friendly packaging.

Your books seem expensive. Why is this?

We print our books in England with FSC certified paper from responsible sources. Our books are free of advertising and we incorporate the postage costs into the price we charge. We think not having adverts and incorporating environmental concerns into our products is worth paying a little extra for.

Do the businesses pay to be featured?

No. We want people to be able to trust that our recommendations are just that. We think this honesty and integrity is a really important part of what we are trying to do. Every business that we recommend has been researched and invited. Each business appears on our site and in our travel guides for free.

Who takes the photography?

We do. We travel and visit unannounced and make every recommendation based on our own experience and opinions. We want to show a real and genuine reflection of what we experienced when we visited a business. We use our photography to tell a story for each of the businesses we recommend. We want to bring each one to life and inspire our audience to visit and have the same experience for themselves.

Are your books available in bookshops?

Our current series is currently only available online but, as we grow, we hope to also sell them in independent, local bookshops to do our bit to support the High Street.

Can I return the book if I don’t like it?

Yes, we have a no quibble 14 day return policy.
