Great Britain Reviews

  • John

    This is a good overall UK guide book. I was surprised by the amount of detail about some pretty obscure places we visited in Scotland.

    It was a little heavy. We may have been better served with individual London and Scotland books.

  • NerdGirlBlogger

    Of all the travel books out there, I prefer Eyewitness Travel. I have found that they always have better maps, better pictures and information, and better recommendations.

  • Robyn

    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.

  • Karen!

    I think that DK Eyewitness Travel books are among the best. This was comprehensive and informative, but not to the point of me getting bored.

    These books are arranged quite logically...now to buy that plane ticket...

    وفي دليل السفر ليس من الضروري ان نقرا الكتاب كله, وانما المعلومات المهمة والمناطق التي يرغب الانسان بزيارتها

    الجزء الجيد من الكتاب كان القسم التاريخي اذ كانت فيه معلومات مفيدة عن تاريخ برييطانيا

    كما لاحظت ان هذه السلسلة تحوي صورا ومخططات توضيحة اكثر من سلسلة lonely planet وهذا مجرد شعور مبدئي ربما بحاجة لتاكيد لاحقا

    "A visual as well as a informational feast" is

    indeed I'd class it more along the lines of

    a good reference book.

    With plenty of glossy pictures and diagrams of

    parts of towns you'd want to visit, this style

    lends itself to learning all about where you

    want to go, or perhaps you're just dreaming a bit.

    It does have a couple sections on practical

    information, using transportation and the like

    but the book's strong point is giving you a

    This book will make you want to run and pack your bags. It's great for the daydream phase of your trip. Hardcore planning will have to happen somewhere else. This book is a great starting point.

  • Terri Lynn

    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.

  • Jennifer Hughes

    Beautiful to browse and great fodder for daydreams! I like the street-level illustrated maps with suggested routes for some attractions. If I ever make it to Britain, I'd use this to plan my trip, and I'd also love to have it on Kindle for quick reference while on vacation.

  • Tracy

    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!
