There is definitely some interesting and useful information here, but Steves' attitude gets in the way. He tends to make very sweeping judgements about entire areas of Great Britain (for example, he writes off most of Wales with just a few sentences). To me, he comes off as a guy who wants everybody to know how well-traveled and enlightened he is, when in reality he has some very strong prejudices and opinions.
I haven't actually read this version, however I've used his travel books for 8 years now. When we lived in the UK I used his books extensively. Some info would be out of date, however I was also visiting cities more than once and really getting to go to more than just the main attractions. His books would be my first choice for travel anytime!
Excellent! Steves doesn't cover every city or landmark in Britain, but those he chooses, he has great detail about. For example, he tells how to obtain inner circle access to Stonehenge, and provides self-guided walk information for several key cities and towns.
Planning a trip there this summer. There a lot of GREAT ideas in this guide. The only problem I see is that some of the B&B's he recommends are not rated very high on I guess we'll see for ourselves in June!
Great book. Steves is very opinionated and focused so it's nice to have another travel book to use in conjunction with it; but his guidance is very helpful and his information is easy to use and reliable.
As usual. Mr Steves adds some interesting stories and facts to your armchair exploration of foreign destinations. Helped in our online searches for information, even though we have been several times.
Excellent. Quirky and opinionatedv with lots of swell prose, this man gives you a plan. I have his copy of almost every European country, and it is the best, along with Let's Go.
Loooong but a lot of information for our upcoming trip. Been very useful so far. Will definitely be going with us.
got me to know where to go around the island and gave me the idea of what I would enjoy to do
