We love Dorling Kindersley's Eyewitness Travel Guides and this one is no exception. It's packed with all sorts of useful travel information including dimensional drawings, floor plans, detailed neighborhood maps, as well as timelines, charts, walks, drives and even popular bus routes. Broken into several sections - "Introducing Great Britain," "Region by Region" (including London and environs, Scotland, and Wales). Lavishley illustrated in color. A must for UK bound vacationers!
