You're going to LOVE BRITAIN!

I've spent a year in England and have made >30 visits all together. <br /> <br />Here are my reviews of the best guides....to meet you r exact needs.....I hope these are helpful and that you have a great visit! I always gauge the quality of my visit by how much I remember a year later......this review is designed to help you get the guide that will be sure YOU remember your trip many years into the future. Travel Safe and enjoy yourself to the max! <br /> <br />Lonely Planet <br />Lonely Planet has City and Out To Eat Guides. They are all about the experience so they focus on doing, being, getting there, and this means they have the best detailed information, including both inexpensive and really spectacular restaurants and hotels, out-of-the-way places, weird things to see and do, the list is endless. <br /> <br />MapGuide <br />MapGuide is very easy to use and has the best location information for pubs, hotels, tourist attractions, museums, churches etc. that they manage to keep fairly up to date. It's great for teaching you how to use the underground and the double decker buses. The text sections are quick overviews, not reviews, but the strong suite here is brevity, not depth. I strongly recommend this for your first few times learning your way around the classic tourist sites and experiences. MapGuide is excellent as long as you are staying pretty much in the city centre. When you get to be an old London hand, remember that the classic Londoners guide will always be an A to Z (zed) map and guide. If you want to go a bit beyond the central core of the city (perhaps to Windsor, Hampton, or further away) you really need the proper AtoZ to be able to find exact routes and streets. <br /> <br />Time Out <br />The Time Out guides are very good. Easy reading, short reviews of restaurants, hotels, and other sites, with good public transport maps that go beyond the city centre. Many people who buy more than one guidebook end up liking this one best! <br /> <br />Blue Guides <br />Without doubt, the best of the walks guides.... the Blue Guide has been around since 1918 and has extremely well designed walks with lots of unique little side stops to hit on just about any interest you have. If you want to pick up the feel of the city, this is the best book to do that for you. This is one that you end up packing on your 10th trip, by which time it is well worn. <br /> <br />Michelin <br />Famous for their quality reviews, the Red Michelin Guides are for hotels & Restaurants, the Green Michelin Guides are for main tourist destinations. However, the English language Green guide is the one most people use and it has now been supplemented with hotel and restaurant information. These are the serious review guides as the famous Michelin ratings are issued via these books. <br /> <br />Let's Go <br />Let's Go is a great guide series that specializes in the niche interest details that turn a trip into a great and memorable experience.

The Best All-Purpose Guide to Britain!

I have traveled to England a dozen times and I own current editions of 12 different guidebooks. This is far and away the best. It has the most useful information in the easiest-to-use format. For one thing it has all the travel planning facts you need. In addition, the destinations are described with writing that is evocative, imaginative and accurate. The recommendations are reliable and I was never steered wrong in selecting lodgings and restaurants. Before I found this book, I had to combine four different guidebooks to get all the information that's included in this one. From a veteran traveler, I highly recommend the Lonely Planet guide.

great guide for a free spirit

This was the first LP guide I purchased. I highly recommend this guide book and used it extensively, while travelling in England and Scotland. When I first got off the plane and ended up at the airport, I made the mistake of making a hotel reservation through the Thomas Cook booth at the train station. That was a mistake. The next day, I pulled out my LP guide, and found a hotel down the street that was half the price, and it was cleaner, and nicer to boot. From that moment onwards, I was hooked on LP guides.Since I was travelling solo, and had a rail pass, I pretty much decided where I wanted to go when I woke up each morning. I would find a hotel when it started to get dark. When that would happen, I would pull out this guide, and find a place to stay. Recommended.

Brillian--don't leave home without it and your brolly

This guidebook was my constant companion for my 3- 1/2 week trip through England, Scotland and Wales. I'd never travelled abroad before, but felt totally prepared, and had a wonderful trip. Excellent info on transport, B & Bs, sights, the works. I was always the go-to person for itinerary planing within the group of friends I was travelling w/, b/c of my LP guide. In a class by itself. Give me my passport,my ATM/VISA card, and an LP guide and I'll go anywhere!
