Fodor's Essential Great Britain.pdf
Great Britain remains a perennial favorite with travelers, drawing almost 3 million Americans each year, many of whom will revisit the nation. People may come for the hipness of London, the thatched-roof villages of the Cotswolds, or the moors and loch of Scotland, but all want the most worthwhile destinations and savvy travel tips at a glance. Fodor's full-color Essential Great Britain provides this with a selective collection of the best of England, Scotland, and Wales.
Curated Coverage: Because Britain isn't large, many people do combine a trip to England with Scotland or Wales. This new guide offers the top attractions and experiences in Britain by region, whether it's cities, great castles or stately homes, or best country villages, with plenty of Fodor's Choices for sights as well as dining and lodging options. Some of the 18 destination chapters are: in England, London, the Southeast of England, Oxford & the Thames Valley, the West Country, the Cotswolds & Stratford-upon-Avon, the Lake District, and Yorkshire; northern and southern Wales, in one chapter; and, in Scotland, Edinburgh, Glasgow, the Central Highlands, Aberdeen & the Northeast, and the Great Glen and the Isle of Skye. Inspiring full-color photos capture memorable attractions and activities.
ILLUSTRATED FEATURES: Full-color features on top experiences such as iconic Stonehenge, pubs, hiking in the Lake District, and English gardens give travelers a deeper understanding of the country. Spotlights on English food, great West Country drives, Welsh castle, and Scottish whisky provide insight into contemporary life as well as the past.
ESSENTIAL TRIP-PLANNING TOOLS: Essential Great Britain makes organizing a trip a snap. An Experience Great Britain chapter includes Top Attractions not to miss, Quintessential Britain for classic experiences, If You Like for the best sights by type (great walks, stately homes, and so on), a Great Britain Planner with transportation information and money-saving tip, and four Great Itineraries to cover a variety of routes and options. Each city or regional chapter contains an orientation page with a map and Top Reasons to Go; a Planner section suggest best times to go and how to organize your trip within the region and get around. Throughout the guide, clear, easy-to-read maps show sights and key roads.
