Kurzbeschreibung

You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Great Britain.

With this guide, you’ll explore the misty isle of Great Britain, from lively London to the lush green fields of Wales and the craggy beauty of the Scottish Highlands. Wander the sheep-dotted hillsides of the Lake District, and stroll the promenade at the kitschy beach resort of Blackpool. On Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, ask a proud Scot about the local whisky. Trace Britain’s history from prehistoric Stonehenge to Roman Bath, and from tout Welsh castles to Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon. After a busy day of sightseeing, relax at a neighborhood pub, sharing a chat and a pint with a friendly local.

Rick’s candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels, B&Bs, and restaurants in big cities and small villages. You’ll learn how to travel by train, bus, or car and discover which sights are worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.

This ebook and its features are best experienced on iOS or Android devices and the Kindle Fire.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Lots left out 3. Februar 2014
Von Amy Capuano - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I guess I should have done more research before buying this book, because I wound up being pretty disappointed. I've used and enjoyed Rick Steves' guides before, so when I wanted a travel guide covering England, I didn't hesitate to order this one. At a glance, one assumes it will cover - at least in part - all of the major tourist destinations/cities/regions. Unfortunately, this is not the case. A quick glance at the index reveals a single page for the city of Oxford. The listing? 'Oxford: Harry Potter sights'. That's it. It seems Mr. Steves prefers Cambridge, which gets an entire section devoted to it. That's fine, of course, but we happen to want to visit Oxford in our travels (too many years of watching the adventures of Inspectors Morse and Lewis), and to do so, we'll have to buy another book.

Similarly, a whopping 48 pages are devoted to North Wales, while South Wales gets only 19 - 11 of them about Cardiff. Want to visit Manchester or Bristol? Cornwall, Devon, or the East Midlands? Sorry, these places don't exist in this book. The Keswick Pencil Museum? It's your lucky day!

I'm not criticizing the way Steves tours or writes (Pencil Museum, though?!). But really, could you not just call it, 'Rick Steves' Best of Great Britain' and include a bit on the back cover about it only covering certain places? At least then I'd know to buy more than one guide for our trip.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Rick is usually right...but beware the Rick Steve's effect! 30. Mai 2014
Von Maui Howie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
In the areas covered by Rick's book, he is spot on. However, there are several areas of GB that he completely ignores for reasons of his own. The area in and around Aberdeen, Scotland is one key example. Aberdeen is a wonderful city, full of historic and cultural treasures, and voted one of the most liveable cities in the world. It is relatively cheap, clean, and easy to get to. He harps on Bath, which has created a touristy, expensive, crowded nightmare. Some of his recommended B&Bs had raised their prices substantially since they got a mention, so beware of the "Rick Steve's effect" before deciding to visit or book a reservation.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointment abounds! 15. Juli 2014
Von Dinkydoright - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Disappointing! A guide to Great Britain it is NOT. No Oxford, no Newcastle, no Aberdeen. Lots of missing cities and places and noticably lacking information that really informs! Maybe useful for people who are going for the first time and intend to see the most common of sites. For me, I found the information significantly scant even for the bigger cities such as Edinburgh and York.

But I just can't get over that Oxford Street in London gets some coverage but the city of Oxford isn't mentioned. I returned the book! I'll stay with Lonely Planet that is so informative that I found new places and areas. Perhaps I am most deeply disappointed after seeing the dvds of Robson Green's Northumberland. Some great places to explore and listed in Lonely Planet. Rich Steves allows for Holy Island but discourages those who won't rent a car. Oh, Steves allows for buses from Newcastle but doesn't give me Newcastle.

So I'll stick with Lonely Planet, country buses, walking and exploring ... and Rick Steves on PBS is about the best of him in my estimation.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Should have gone to his website more 26. Dezember 2014
Von Aaron Goldman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I am a big fan of Rick Steves' travel books and use them where ever I go. I purchased this book for a possible future trip (and to fulfil the free shipping requirement). When the book came, I was so excited that I started planning my virtual trip. One of my coworkers told me about his website. There is more updated information on the site than in the book. When abroad without internet service, the book would be great. While in the US, I will be doing my Rick Steves' research via his website.

3.0 von 5 Sternen This may be for some other people, but not for us. 14. Juli 2014
Von HL - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Contents, Not impressive, often too subjective. And, too verbal when you need a quick glance.

We used DK eyewitness and TA most of the time for our driving journey of the Southern part (East and West) of England.

This would benefit for others who have the same mindset with the authors.
