This book gets mad props for being so well researched, but also so very readable and--most importantly--pretty! The authors (more aptly research team) does a fantastic job of narrowing down the list to the must sees. The book is arranged in sections, first giving an historical timeline of events relevant to Castles in the United Kingdom, and then giving a brief overview of each era, to help identify key architecture as well as culture.

While many readers will use this as a travel guidebook--mysel
I loved reading about one hundred castles in England, prior to my vacation there. I hope my visit will be enriched by this research; I learned about the history, and location, of many sites which helped me select an itinerary.
