Well I didn't need all of England, but I did need the Cotswolds
and London and collected a lot of good information. I can see
good gawd ! London is expensive.

I'm usually a Frommer's guide fan, but like to check out what the
library has before I purchase something. I categorize
the the audience for the various guides :

Fodors - travelers with a bit more money

Frommers - middle money

Rick Steves, Lonely planet - lower middle money, and worried about
not worrying about appearances

Densely informative, and kind of laid out like a textbook. (A good textbook. One which has an easy-to-follow key and organizing system and breaks up big blocks of text by bolding key terms and putting asides in cute little boxes. And the awareness of how quickly it will be outdated and encouragement to check the associated website.) But the tone is more accessible than a textbook, and there are citations of random internet people using their user names which is kind of not professional like a te ...more

In preparation for a recent trip to the UK, I began researching guide books. While I had already visited the country and had a general idea of what I wanted to see, having a guidebook as insurance is always a smart idea.

These guides are dense and laid out more like textbooks. I think that the information is great and the maps are nice, but you actually have to do a bit of reading--novel for a book, I know.

While comprehensive, it can be a bit difficult to digest.

Of course, I love that Wales is included!

I'm just getting started planning a trip to England/Scotland for next year and am getting my bearings. This book was somewhat helpful, but it was a bit too specific for this early stage of figuring out what I want to see.

Some of you will think this is lame, but this is over 800 pages and I read the entire thing. I know much more about England now and am planning a fun trip - if only the airfare wasn't so damn expensive!
