Whether you're planning a five-day tour of the battlefields of northern France or an afternoon at the local children's theatre, Tips for Trips has some helpful advice for you. It's a 100-page book written in a sprightly and accessible style. Starting with the legal context of risks and responsibilities, it also tackles the problems of planning and promoting a successful event. There are checklists of potential problems, with adults as well as children in the frame. Special diets, coach parks and unfamiliar toilets all play their part.
