Format: Paperback
Good printing and great city maps of main cities, which help you to plan your journey easily. But it was published in June 2008, so the information of prices and opening hours are not accurate. So I suggest you to search these sort of information online. Happy Travelling!!

Can't tell you how disappointing this new edition is!!! I had an old version which was falling to bits with use so I decided to buy the new version WHAT A MISTAKE TO MAKE!
They have taken out all the good bits & just left a catalogue of opening times.

Put the good bits back in - the histories & anecdotes are what made this such a good guide book!

Format: Paperback
An excellent guide, with a good amount of history for each place. Good guidelines, but beware: prices have increased since the guide was published.

The Definitive Planning Guide.... 19 Jan. 2009
By D.S.Thurlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The 2008 edition of "The Rough Guide to Britain" is the definitive planning guide for those intending a vacation that takes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Ireland, including Northern Ireland, is covered in a separate Rough Guide). In a compact 1,000 page format, this Rough Guide offers choices and lots of them, along with information on when and how to get there.

Britain has much to entertain the visitor, from cosmopolitan London to cathedral towns and grand homes to the wilderness areas of northern Scotland and central Wales. Several thousand years of well-preserved history are on display in a variety of museums, while the major cities offer the lastest in culture and shopping. There is something for almost everyone.

"The Rough Guide to Britain" breaks out its coverage of England, Wales, and Scotland by geographic regions. Each regional chapter points out the touring highlights and the practicalities of dining and lodging. The text is buttressed by graphic maps, black and white photos, and short articles on special items of interest. Color inserts in the Guide focus on items of general interest such as Britain's coastal areas, its literary heritage, and unique festivals worth a look. The Guide has the usual maps of Britain, climatology charts, and the practical details of arriving in and traveling around Britain.

"The Rough Guide to Britain" is very highly recommended to those planning a vacation in Great Britain. This guide, along with appropriate driving maps, may be the only resources needed for an excellent visit.
