‘The Geek’s Guide to Britain’ was launched into the ‘speccy’ stratosphere as a travel guide showcasing facts, figures and history, covering 26 destinations spanning the country - and three are in Milton Keynes.

Bletchley Park, the National Museum of Computing and Hanslope Park are the MK geek-tastic destinations featured - the book details every site’s history are directions to get there and entry fee information.

Author Gavin Clarke said: “Which country is credited with designing more than half of the world’s most important inventions?

“Is it Germany home of the VW? Japan, birthplace of the Walkman? The US, land of NASA and Google?

“No, it’s Britain and to celebrate this we’ve put together the Geek’s Guide to Britain.”

The travel guide explores the historic world of factories, bunkers, bridges and tunnels in Britain that are significant places of achievement and grants full permission to geek out about details that might otherwise sneak under your sci-fi radar.

It even reaches such high levels of geek that he GPS co-ordinates are included in the book for each location.

‘The Geek’s Guide to Britain’ is available to buy online for £19.99 and you can follow the book on twitter (@GG2GB) for more anorak news.
