5.0 out of 5 stars A Brilliant guide ... just heavy to carry! 4 Dec 2001
Format:Paperback
For those new to the DK Eyewitness books I cannot recommend them highly enough for their clear guide content, pictures, diagrams and information. I have found that it replaces the need to buy a guide book in many attractions (eg Westminster Abbey) as there is sufficient info contained to satisfy most travellers' interests. The guide is broken down neatly into regions with basic maps which makes it easy to use when on a driving holiday or planning your day's itinerary. On the downside, the 672 glossy pages, though beautiful, get very heavy in your backpack etc when you are on your feet all day.
In summary, I love these guides and search for them first when visiting anywhere new.
A final note to answer another's review, there are separate guides for Scotland, Ireland, London etc that cover those areas in more detail.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent guide 9 Oct 2008
By T. Bently VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
A huge amount of effort and research has gone into this chunky guide. Just choosing the pictures must have been a mammoth task: they're all up to date, in colour and give a clear idea of the delights of the various cities and attractions.

I used to work in a visitor information office in Wales and found the section on South Wales particularly well done, especially since it's an area off the typical tourist track. The only thing which let it down was the hotel recommendations. They tend to be in areas often way outside of town and city centres, so aren't much use to those travelling without cars.

It may be a little heavy to carry round with you, but it's ideal as a reference source if you're at home researching a trip and want to sort out an itinary. Well done again Dorling Kindersley!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Travel Companion 17 Nov 2007
Format:Paperback
I brought this book purely for what was written on the cover.
And I'm glad I did. The pictures make the book far more interesting to read and I've gone through is several times and continue going back to it as soon as I'm bored and need to go somewhere.
Big recommendation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice guide book 5 April 2010
Format:Paperback
Very useful guide book, with lots of pictures to show you what you can expect from the various places, and good descriptions. Compare to many other guide books with only tons of writing, it is definitely easier and more intuitive to fulfil our interests.
The restaurants/pubs/hotels section is a bit short though

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Great Britain Travel Guide 9 Oct 2009
By Hcarpy
Format:Paperback
We recently bought this guide book for a week's holiday in Yorkshire, and I also wanted a book about Great Britain to use in future for days out. It is an excellent guide with clear and concise information, beautiful pictures and has street/floor plans of many cities and main tourist attractions. I always buy the DK Eyewitness Travel Guides as I think they are the best and good value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best travel guide of Britain 20 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Covering every imaginable spot of interest in Great Britain and packed with maps and color pictures, this is a travel guide you could enjoy just reading like a novel. The attractive layout and photos of locations and attractions really help you decide what to include in your itinerary. Color diagrams of museums, castles and sightseeing districts makes you feel more in control and less lost. With this guide and a car, we traveled for a month and were never disappointed.
