Review: The NEW Rough Guide to Great Britain

Click HERE to buy the book

"Viking knees-ups, crumbling castles and dizzyingly diverse cities: for a small place, Great Britain packs a lot in. The long history of these islands is visible around every corner, in ancient stone circles and genteel seaside resorts, soot-blackened sites of Victorian industry and cutting-edge modern art galleries. Great Britain is full of surprises, and this fully updated Rough Guide will lead you down twisting alleyways, along precipitous coast paths and over heather-strewn moorland to find the very best it has to offer."

Discover Rough Guides’ home patch with the most incisive and entertaining guidebook on the market. Whether you plan to tuck into a balti in Birmingham, get your thrills at Blackpool Pleasure Beach or tackle Scotland’s majestic North Coast 500, The Rough Guide to Great Britain will show you the ideal places to sleep, eat, drink, shop and visit along the way.
