You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Great Britain.
With this guide, you’ll explore the misty isle of Great Britain, from lively London to the lush green fields of Wales and the craggy beauty of the Scottish Highlands. Wander the sheep-dotted hillsides of the Lake District, and stroll the promenade at the kitschy beach resort of Blackpool. On Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, ask a proud Scot about the local whisky. Trace Britain’s history from prehistoric Stonehenge to Roman Bath, and from tout Welsh castles to Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon. After a busy day of sightseeing, relax at a neighborhood pub, sharing a chat and a pint with a friendly local.
Rick’s candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels, B&Bs, and restaurants in big cities and small villages. You’ll learn how to travel by train, bus, or car and discover which sights are worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.
