Tom's Britain - Exploring places of interest and things to do in England, Wales & Scotland


  • Want advice?
  • Fancy a chat or a cup of tea?
  • Want to thank the author for his work, or criticise his lack of imagination or attention to detail?
  • Benevolent billionaire keen to employ someone to show you what you've been missing while you've been obsessing about making money like it's the only thing that matters?
  • Have an event you're actually involved with organising that you think would work well on this site as a 'thing to do'?
  • Looking for someone to write for your publication?
Please do address your emails "Dear Tom", "Hi Tom" etc, as this helps quickly & easily work out which emails are from a real person and which have come via a PR database, or are blind copied to a long list of people. The former are generally much more effective.

Sadly, it is no longer possible to reply to all emails. Generally most of them are read, but billions of emails are now sent every day, and if you send an unsolicited email and / or you're being paid to flog something, you're becoming less less likely to receive a response.


  1. Dear Tom, Thanks for all of the inspiring suggestions over the years. After 8 years working in London a move to Manchester has opened my horizons, too. London will always be the world's greatest city, but so many corners of Britain deserve to be explored. Hope you are enjoying it!

  2. Hi Tom,

    I'm a volunteer with the charity Sunday Assembly. We've got a really great event happening next month that I think would be a great 'thing to do'.

    There's a few details below.
