As usual, the Michelin Green Guide was very good. The detailed descriptions were accurate and helpful. Next time I would get the guide for the specific regions for even more detail. The only complaint I can think of is that I would prefer a locational organization as opposed to an alphabetical one.

Our previous experience with Michelin guides was when we visited France in 1980. We found them absolutely invaluable then, in nearly every respect. So our expectations were that the Michelin guides to London, Great Britain, and Scotland (separate volumes) would serve us just as well during a recent month-long visit to the UK.

Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Many of the descriptions of the sites were too brief to give us an adequate idea of whether it was worth the time to stop, and unlike some other guidebooks, Michelin makes no attempt to help with sorting through the rather overwhelming number of worthwhile and important sites that a country with this rich and varied history as the UK has to offer.

In the end, we found ourselves using the Michelin books as a supplement to Rick Steves' Great Britain 2013, which we found much more valuable. In retrospect, purchasing these three volumes was probably not worth it.

I spent some time in Europe and England, and have always relied on Michelin Green Guides while sightseeing. The only problem I have with this(and other) Green Guides is they can be too general at times. That is, some of the off the beaten path sights are not covered. I have other Green Guides from 30 years ago that I read now and then for memory jogging.

This guide gives in depth background information about most of what we'll be visiting on a 2-week tour of Britain, Wales and Scotland. It does not include a lot of highly detailed maps, so we'll have to carry those separately--especially street maps of London.

As an older purchaser who remembers Michelin's older Green series, I'm disappointed that the descriptions of artistic objects, museums, churches, etc., are much skimpier than they used to be. I assume Michelin was burned for opinions about the value of some things, but I thought their evaluations in the past were mostly excellent,

Michelin guides are always useful and almost complete.
I've used several in my trips, and am using this one to plan this year's.
Nice to keeep, too, since it's very well printed.
Caution: for accommodations, eateries or transport, you'll probably need some other type of guide also. This is excellent for sightseeing and general background on the country.

We visited England last year, and the Michelin Green guide was very helpful in planning a terrific trip. I don't think I would recommend it as the primary guide; it lacks information on restaurants and accomodation, and, as another reviewer noted, the alphabetical layout makes it hard to choose which general regions you would like to visit. To supplement another book though (we used the Rough Guide),it can be very helpful. The real strength, we found, was in pointing out historic points of interest. It gave a great deal of information about places that the other guide books only provide sketchy information on.

Michelin Green Guide is very valuable for me to prepare my summerholidays in United Kingdom this year.
Last year I bought a map from Michelin and using their web-adress Viamichelin for our holidays in UK.
I just missed a book for guiding us, so this year I want to have a guide and when I am very satisfied with the map from Michelin my choice of supplier get to be Michelin.
