Overview

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.

This ebook and its features are best experienced on iOS or Android devices and the Kindle Fire.

Rick does a good job of covering GB if you travel like he does, very light with modest comfort. However, most of his tips did not apply to us very well. We did wash clothes in the sink but they did not dry overnight, maybe due to not having $$$ clothing made for it. I would not want to go as light as Rick suggests but he does make good suggestions to help prevent over packing. The area and sight reviews are pretty good but very difficult to see a lot the way he suggests. Good guide but not the only one you need.
