Illustrated Guide to Britain
W. W. Norton & Company, 1997 - 256 pages
Covering the length and breadth of Great Britain, this definitive guide provides a wealth of information on over 500 of the country's most attractive, interesting, and historic destinations, both well-established tourist spots and those less well known.
Maps are complemented by the latest gazetteer descriptions of places of interest. Each map extract features one or more centers that are good starting places for a tour, and authors with local knowledge outline the attractions of the area, such as castles, gardens, famous landmarks, and areas of outstanding beauty and interest. The Guide also includes an extended section on the unique attractions of London.
