Overview

You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go-they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything and dozens of color maps. You'd be lost without us!

This invaluable guide contains all the information you need to get to and around some of the most popular destinations in England. Using London as a base, you can explore the college towns of Oxford and Cambridge; go on rambling walks or bike rides through the English countryside; or experience the mystery of Stonehenge, each in only a day!

We give you all the information you need to plan your day trip, from train schedules to parking information and the best places to pick up picnic supplies or enjoy a more leisurely meal. Detailed maps and suggested itineraries for each destination guarantee that you'll see as much as possible without feeling rushed. And if there's so much to do that we think you might want to extend your trip, we give you the scoop on the best places to stay, from budget B&Bs to luxury hotels. Also included are savvy insider tips, historical information, and special "finds" that most tourists and tour groups miss.

Meet the Author

Stephen Brewer writes about England, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and other parts of the world for Frommer's and many other guidebooks and magazines. He is the author of The Unofficial Guide to England and The Unofficial Guide to Ireland, both published by Wiley. He is also the author of Frommer's Venice Day by Day, and was pleased to be a contributor to Wiley's recent Dream Vacations. Even though he would join Samuel Johnson in the belief that only someone suffering from general existential angst could ever grow tired of London, he never fails to be amazed by all the fascinating places to be enjoyed on easy day trips from the capital.

Donald Olson is a novelist, playwright, and travel writer. His seventh novel, Memoirs Are Made of This (written under the nom de plume Swan Adamson), was published in 2007 by Hodder Headline in the U.K. His plays have been produced in London, New York, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam. Donald Olson's travel stories have appeared in the New York Times and many other national publications. He is the author of Frommer's Vancouver & Victoria, London For Dummies, Germany For Dummies, and England For Dummies, which won the 2002 Lowell Thomas Travel Writing Award for "Best Guidebook."
