5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful; the stuff dreams are made of 2 May 2012
I love this book. With colour photos, maps, and helpful descriptions of what to do, where to eat and stay, and how to get there, this guidebook is a pleasure to read. It gives suggestions for countless trips of one day to two weeks, detailing everything there is to see and do, how much time is required at each stop, and how to get to the next destination.

The book can be a bit confusing, since one attraction may be listed in many places under different side trips, but reading the entire book page by page is a joy, at once both exhilarating and exhausting, as you daydream of seeing all the beauty, charm, and history Great Britain has to offer. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most user-friendly guide to Great Britain! 9 Oct 2012
By Hoppaguy - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
We are planning a trip to the UK over Thanksgiving and I liked Frommer's the best out of the travel guides. I find that Frommer's is the most user-friendly. It's pretty funny but I basically planned our trip mainly around pages 2 - 21 which start with "favorite Britain moments" and then have their favorites for everything from "picturesque villages", "small cities", etc. We like going to museums and there was a page on best museums and finest art collections. The London section of the guidebook is great but I particularly liked the section on Sussex. There is also a handy little map of central London in the back. Overall, I found the Frommer's Great Britain to be the most user-friendly of all the guidebooks!

5.0 out of 5 stars This one's coming with us! ... 22 July 2012
By L. Mountford - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Thi may be the best travel planning book I've used, and I've used a bunch. It matches perfectly the way I like to plan my trips: "I have X numer of days to spend in an area. What can I see/do in that amount of time?"

My brother, his wife, and I are planning a 4-week trip to Wales, Scotland, and Ireland for the summer of 2013. This book can't help with Ireland, but it has Wales and Scotland totally covered. We're planning on spending 7-10 days in Wales, and lookee here!: "The Best of North Wales in 1 Week," and "The Best of South Wales in 3 Days"! PERFECT! Our family is from North Wales, so we want to focus our time there (there's also a 3 day option for North Wales, as well as a 7-day option for South Wales). Lists of "Favorite Moments" for each area, "Where to Stay and Dine," great maps, realistic driving directions and schedules -- really useful info that we'll need to iron out the details of our trip -- 7-10 days in Wales, a week in Scotland, and 7-10 days in Ireland.

The book is well-organized, sturdy -- it's not exactly lightweight -- and packed with "themed" suggestions (e.g., "The Best Palaces," "The Best Literary Experiences," and "Special Interest Trips A to Z").

Total winner!

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy This Guide If You Know Where You Want To Go 25 Mar 2013
By Linda Cargill - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is organized on the basis of regions of England the way any other tour book would be but with an important difference. The authors assume you don't already know what you want to see. They recommend itineraries to you. They start with the best all-Britain itineraries. Then they proceed to the Best of London in 1, 2, or 3 days. After that it's on to Kent and Sussex in 3 to 5 days, South-Central England in 3 days, Yorkshire in 3 days, Edinburgh in 2 days, Glasgow and the Lowlands in 1 week,the Highlands in 1 to 2 weeks, Wales in 3 days, and North Wales in 3 days. On the back cover it even advertises that the reader can follow the recommended itineraries or mix and match them.

If you know where you want to go and want to use this book to look up additional material on sights to see, stay away! You will only get frustrated and confused the way I did. I was trying to find additional material for a planned 1 week trip to England. I wanted to see Winston Churchill's Chartwell in Kent the first day out of Southampton after disembarking from the Queen Mary. Then I wanted to stay near Richmond upon Thames for the next four nights while I toured London and visited the Churchill War Rooms, the Churchill Museum, Hampton Court, and the Imperial War Museum. The next day we planned to stay at Rhinefield House in Hampshire and tour T. E. Lawrence's home, Cloud's Hill in Dorset. The final day we planned to proceed back to Southampton to board the ship.

I would recommend that you buy Frommer's England and the Best of Wales instead. That guide is also organized by region. But each region lists hotels, restaurants, and sightseeing attractions instead of pre-planned triptiks.

In planning my trip to England, I was searching for a travel book that could help me plan out what I *could* do with the limited time that I have. An excellent feature of this particular book series is that it includes detailed, precise itineraries of how to plan a trip lasting a different number of days. Throughout the book, you'll find sections like "The Best of London in 3 Days" or 5 days, etc. This is a wonderful tool for planning your trip, and I'd highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frommer's does it again! 28 Jun 2012
By Tracie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Frommer's writes my favorite travel guides, and they certainly lived up to their reputation with this one. My favorite element is their maps. This one has a plastic envelope sealed to the back cover for keeping your map safe, and the map itself is a lovely, thick plastic-y paper that is very stain and tear resistant. One side is a great map of central London, and the other side is a map of England, Scotland and Wales.

There are some lovely suggested itineraries for touring all of Great Britain in one week or two, as well as lots of itineraries for other trips great and small (such as the Best of London in 1, 2 or 3 days, or the best of the Scottish Highlands in 1 week).

The book is divided into geographic areas, and the writing is clear and engaging. There are tons of pictures, and enough history for you to understand what you are looking at.

It's a great book and I expect I'll be using it for many travels to come!
