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.

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!

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.

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.

I highly recommend this book.

It is full of colourful diagrams, maps, pictures, routes and valuable tips that made my holiday planning to England most enjoyable and easy.
It is well organised into regions and the introduction information on the history, culture and architecture of England are great.
You will enjoy reading this book even if not visiting England.

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.

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

Oh my gosh this book is so amazing. My husband and I have taken so many trips because of this book. We moved here to the UK 3 years ago, not knowing much about the country i bought this book online bc i had read good reviews on it. I love how it is organized in an easy to read manner with so many pictures and helpful sections and tips. I also love how it is so detailed even for smaller towns and attractions. so many tourist books only focus on more major attractions- this lists absolutely everything. the maps are great. the history in it is great. the whole thing is great. it makes traveling so easy. I highly recommend this and couldn't be happier with the product. shipping was fast also.
