ABBEY’S BOOKSELLER PICK —— Fancy a weekend exploring Gothic Tasmania? Or perhaps a couple of days discovering the Cuba of Ernest Hemingway? Maybe you prefer the live music scene in Adelaide, or tracing Harry Potter through London, or immersing yourself in Renaissance Florence? What about the art islands of Naoshima, Art Nouveau in Budapest or artisan Marrakesh? These and more are here in this fully illustrated book. Detailed itineraries, maps and tips to make the most of your time – everything you need to plan (or dream about) a perfect weekend of cultural activity! Lindy Jones

We present ideas and itineraries for 52 weekends of culture heaven, packed with expert recommendations, maps and advice on how to get there and where to stay.

We've searched the globe to find 52 cultural enclaves where the arts have had a profound, lasting impact and local culture is being protected and nurtured; where old customs hold true and new ones are being forged; and where the past is melding with the future in fascinating ways.
