Join Ordnance Survey this Christmas for cryptic tour of Great Britain

17 Oct 2019

Crammed full of puzzles, mind-boggling brainteasers, navigational tests, word games, code-crackers, anagrams and mathematical conundrums, The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Tour of Britain challenges you to map your way around Great Britain. 

With four levels of difficulty, the book has been specially designed to provide fun for all the family.  Every page celebrates the nation’s diversity, history and landscapes through maps, folklore and historical events. It even contains recommendations for a perfect day out courtesy of OS’s GetOutside Champions.

Nick Giles, Ordnance Survey Leisure Managing Director, says: "The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Tour of Britain takes readers on an epic journey around England, Scotland and Wales.

"The success of the first puzzle book was overwhelming and showed us that we are a nation of people that love maps and love puzzles and quizzes.

"We are delighted to have the opportunity to do another book that brings these two things together.

"The puzzles are more varied and require different skills to solve them.

"I think people will love this book more than they did the first. It is the ideal stocking filler for those who love Great Britain."

In 2018 The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Book sold more than 165,000 copies, reaching No.1 in the paperback charts in Christmas-week, and was nominated for Non-Fiction Lifestyle Book of the Year at the British Book Awards.

The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Tour of Britain is published by Trapeze and is on sale October 17.
