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

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.

Of course, I love that Wales is included!
Good, but was hoping to have a fold-out map of England and not just London enclosed. Will return to the Library and scope on!
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!
