A visual as well as a informational feast ishow one blurb puts the Eyewitness Guides, andindeed I d class it along the lines ofa good reference book With plenty of glossy pictures and diagrams ofparts of towns you d want to visit, this stylelends itself to learning all about where youwant to go, or perhaps you re just dreaming a bit It does have a couple sections on practicalinformation, using transportation and the likebut the book s strong point is giving you alook around Since it is a heavy duty softback book, notlikely you d want to tote this around with youseeing the sights. These DK guides provide a good overview of a place cultural and historical background, helpful maps, suggestions for activites, lodging, local food, and places to see The abundance of high quality photographs is especially helpful for determining what things you d like to see for yourself For visiting somewhere for the first time, this is a good guide to begin with. Helpful for planning a trip, yet I wish DK published a book with a bit detail on the south of England I found it hard to determine where the best beaches were to go. I love DK Eyewitness Travel books I always find DK Books really clear with just the right amount of pictures and details.I love British Travel and use this book all the time to plan my trips lonely planet This is one of my favorite of DK Publishing s travel guides This particular piece of eye candy takes you across Great Britain with loads of color photos of things to see and do and places to go for both people looking forward to a trip and armchair travelers alike. My husband is PCS ing to RAF Lakenheath, so I figured I might as well read up on things to see and do while we re over there It s very helpful because instead of feeling like I m reading a phone book which is how most travel books feel and look , this one has bright photos and maps, small blurbs about a lot of different places instead of lots of info on one boring museum or building , and it s pretty lightweight considering it covers all of Great Britain.
