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.
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!
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.
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.
The restaurants/pubs/hotels section is a bit short though
