Let's Go Great Britain's latest edition really lacking., 21 July 2010
I have been an avid and greatful user of Let's Go Britain and other titles since 1978. I consider the Let's Go series to be one of the best for budget travel. I moved to England from the US 7 years ago and still use Let's Go Britain frequently. I ordered the latest 2010 edition for an american friend's recent trip to England.
I was shocked by the size. This latest version is nearly 200 pages shorter. In comparing it to an older copy I noticed that many of the smaller towns have been removed and many of the places that we were going to visit were no longer included. I then ordered the 2009 edition (once I checked the length!) and found that it adhered to the original format and included everything that I needed.
The 2011 edition is already listed in Amazon for pre-order and is just as short as the 2010. If you want a comprehensive guide then get the 2009 edition while you still can. If all you need is a good guide to the major cities and sites then the smaller editions are probably good enough. At least being small they are easy to take along with you!
