Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
To Americans, the city of Bath, with its elegant architecture, Roman baths, and associations with Jane Austen, may be the most popular destination in this compact region, where one is rarely more than 20 miles from the ocean; however, the southeast corner of England offers much more for visitors. Fullman, who has written several Cadogan guides, highlights the many attractions related to the area's rich seafaring history, startlingly beautiful countryside, and historic homes and villages. He includes numerous places to take children, and recommended restaurants and hotels cover a range of budgets. Fullman provides a great deal of practical advice on how to get the best out of one's trip, as well as numerous web addresses for additional information.Verdict For travelers with a hankering to see the dramatic scenery that inspired Daphne du Maurier, Agatha Christie, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, this excellent guide provides plenty of encouragement and information to keep visitors of all ages happy for a week or more.—Linda M. Kaufmann, Massachusetts Coll. of Liberal Arts Lib., North Adams
