Simon Jenkins has travelled the length and breadth of Great Britain, from Waterloo to Wemyss Bay, Betws-y-Coed to Beverley, to select his hundred best.

It is an institution with its own rituals and priests, and a long-neglected aspect of Britain's architecture. And yet so little do we look at the railway station.

Blending his usual insight and authority with his personal reflections and experiences - including his founding the Railway Heritage Trust - the foremost expert on our national heritage deftly reveals the history, geography, design and significance of each of these glories.

Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this is a uplifting exploration of our social history. 'Britain's 100 Best Railway Stations' shows the station's role in the national conscious, champions the engineers, architects and rival companies that made them possible; and tells the story behind the triumphs and follies of these very British creations.
