    Can anyone recommend a book which I could read to see whether I would like to do A Level and potentially degree level physics? Thanks

    The A-Level course book?

    For degree level, Volume 1 of the Feynman Lectures would be as good a start as any.

    Your GCSE textbook (if you did AQA for GCSE, your mileage may vary for other exam boards) might be a good start since some of the A-level topics are quite similar.

    To add to this, a snippet of the Feynman lectures called "Six Easy Pieces" is also available, which I read while doing GCSE. Perhaps less daunting than starting the whole series!

    Take a look at YouTube if you want to get a feel for the subject. A search on 'A Level physics' should yield you plenty of results. There are also quite a few university lecture series available from top American universities. Although you won't understand much of the content yet, it will give you an idea of what lectures are like. Here are a couple on classical mechanics, which is probably the most accessible undergrad subject:
