Format: Paperback
It's probably too much to ask any one book to cover all of England in detail. But Frommer's has packed this 800-page monster with all the information they could in an attempt to do just that. Did they succeed? Mostly. For starters, they offer over 20 "Best of" lists that help you zero in on the finest the country has to offer in all sorts of categories ranging from museums to pubs and everything in between. Basic travel information is offered for those completely new to the country to help you start off on the right track. There's even a short offering to help you learn a bit about art and architecture so that you can better appreciate what you will see on your visit. And, of course, there are four suggested itineraries for complete trips. Finally, the remaining 700 pages detailed information on the various geographic areas of England.

Without diminishing the rest of the book, I found the "Best of" lists and the itineraries a great starting point because it helped me zoom in on the part of England that I would most want to visit. From there, I started worrying about the specifics of what I would do there and that's when the rest of the book started to come in handy. But I also purchased The Unofficial Guide to England (Unofficial Guides) and found that I often went back and forth between the two. For information on the Cotswolds, Lake District, and some other aspects of the trip, I found Frommer's to be the most helpful. At the same time, when it came to reviewing the sight-seeing attractions in London I preferred the content and format that the Unofficial Guide used. It's not that Frommer's didn't cover it at all, or that the coverage was poor.

Considering that this book is trying to cover a lot of territory we found it very helpful and informative regarding the places we recently visited in England; Manchester, York, Liverpool, Kendal, and London. While we don't totally agree with some of the ratings of various sites, the descriptive detail was always helpful. The book helped us both effectively plan our trip and provided great reference along the way.

The only quibble is that the pull-out London map would have been more helpful if it covered more territory.

I had used Frommer's guides in the past but this one is not up to standards of past guides. It seems that the writers want to ensure the reader understands that these places are overrun with tourists during tourist season. Although I believe I understood that I am not sure what I can do about it. Also, I am one of those tourist. I would rather have seen ONLY a brief statement about the crowds during certain times and more about the places themselves. Also, many of the recommended accommodations leave out some of the best ones available. I am sorry I purchased this one.
