The list author says: "These are the books I recommend to anyone planning a trip to England."
Lonely Planet Great Britain (Country Travel Guide)
1.  Lonely Planet Great Britain (Country Travel Guide) by Fionn Davenport
The list author says:
  "The Lonely Planet guides are excellent, giving lots of detail about the places you might go and things you might see.  But their comprehensiveness makes them huge. So use them as a guide BEFORE you go - don't plan to take them with you."

England for All Seasons
3.  England for All Seasons by Susan Allen Toth

  "Toth shares her love of England and the English by suggesting some lesser-known places to visit.  Charming and funny writing style.  I recommend her other books too."

Perfect London Walk
4.  Perfect London Walk by Roger Ebert
The list author says:
  "I read this book before my first trip to England and decided I had to do the walk.  It's a great way to avoid the tourist traps.  It's a lovely wandering walk around Hampstead Heath.  The book's a bit old, so don't rely on all the directions, but it's still a sublime day out in London."

Walking London's Parks and Gardens
9.  Walking London's Parks and Gardens by Geoffrey Young
