Birthday Book

For my birthday this year, Sue bought me a copy of The Geek Atlas: 128 Places Where Science and Technology Come Alive.

Not only is this book a list of interesting places to visit, it’s also a condensed mine of information about each one, describing why it’s worth a visit and providing weblinks for further reading.

Whilst there is only a slim chance I’ll get to visit all the sites mentioned, I’m tempted to have a go at the 40 odd in the UK! Unfortunately I have found no mention of the Isle of Wight so far but, as the guide covers the world, I suppose that’s hardly surprising! Nice to see Lacock Abbey and Fox Talbot getting a mention though.
