Many tourists to Britain plan to visit at least one pub and this book will give them a great starting point from which to appreciate the pub as an institution. Other CAMRA guides will be essential in aiding travelers to find the best pubs in the places they will visit. All in all, this book makes a fine coffee table/souvenir item for lovers of British culture and for those who want to remember 'real ale' and the places that serve it.
