In Rude Britain, Rob Bailey and Ed Hurst took readers on a delightful stroll up Lickers Lane to Honey Knob Hill, peeked into Beaver Close and enjoyed a well-deserved sit down in the delightful Dorset hamlet of Shitterton. Now, after a year touring around the bestselling Rude World, Rob and Ed have decided to return to dear old Blighty.

The result is a triumphant homecoming tour that has uncovered 100 more delightfully rude British placenames to treasure, from the hidden charms of Slack Bottom and Fanny Street to an unforgettable glimpse of Cocking. Filled with photographs of actual road signs and the fascinating etymological origins of every featured place name, this delightfully rude book is laugh-out-loud funny though the authors are keen to stress that it is all perfectly innocent.
