The Shipping Forecast Puzzle Book




An official, brain-busting puzzle book for Shipping Forecast fans – a mixture of wordplay, lateral thinking, and seaside knowledge, from Viking to Southeast Iceland

Severe quizzing. Moderate or good, occasionally impossible.

The Shipping Forecast is a British institution. Each day, millions tune in to hear its unique cadence and poetry, words that turn our island landscape into something strange and magical. It’s almost like a puzzle to be solved…

The Shipping Forecast Puzzle Book will test your knowledge of our coasts through a series of fiendishly clever puzzles, each organised round a different Shipping Forecast area. Can you calculate your coordinates and do you know your Beaufort scale? Puzzle-master Alan Connor will put you through your Shipping Forecast paces, taking you on a series of maritime voyages: each clue reveals a point on an area map, and those points together create a set of ‘journeys’. And those journeys will lead you to a whole other level of puzzling adventure…

With a foreword by Zeb Soanes, the voice of the Shipping Forecast, and fully illustated with Met Office maps and packed with fascinating seaside trivia, The Shipping Forecast Puzzle Book will help make you a Master of the quizzing world.
