Rick Steves' Great Britain and Ireland, 1997. In both 1998 and 1999, we travelled to Britain using Rick Steves as our primary guide. I have used other guidebooks before: Frommer, Let's Go, Rough Guides, and Lonely Planet.

Ships from and sold by bookshop2. 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. There is more updated information on the site than in the book. When abroad without internet service, the book would be great.

With Rick Steves on your side, Great Britain can be yours! Inside Rick Steves Great Britain you'll find: Comprehensive coverage for spending two weeks or more exploring England, Wales, and Scotland.

Rick Steves doesn't just list where to travel in Europe, he leads travellers through the back door. Well, Rick Steves makes the adjustment even easier with his well thought out, and very easy to understand style of writing and indexing. Use this book as a general guideline if you're doing a "whirlwind" trip of Europe. Do yourself a favor and pick up his individual country guides if you're planning on visiting a single, or even a few countries instead.

Travel connects people with people. There's more to travel than good-value hotels, great art, and tasty cuisine. It helps us fit more comfortably and compatibly into a shrinking world, and it inspires creative new solutions to persistent problems facing our nation.

I planned a trip to England and Ireland using Rick Steve's books (last year's edition and this year's edition) and the Lonely planet books. The combination was great. Rick Steve gives you a very up to date selection of places to stay, things to do and the prices you'll pay. He also included lots of internet addresses. I organized the whole trip over the web with no travel experience! I had to use the old edition to start planning because the new one wasn't available at the time I started planning. I invested in the second updated version a month before leaving and some things had changed! This guide wasn't as comprehensive as the others, but it was full of good usable information. I wouldn't even try traveling overseas again without one of his guides.

I've been a fan of Rick Steves for many years and have taken his books with me on many first-time and repeat trips to various cities in Europe. His books are always helpful, concise, not overloaded with unnecessary info, very entertaining and filled with details such as hotel rates/contacts, daytrips, ratings on sights, sample itineraries and many more. I'm bringing this book with me on my 3rd trip to the UK (and have done so twice before). I would also recommend his "Mona Winks" (museum guide) and "Europe 101" (history overview).

I used this book, along with many others, during my trip to Scotland this year. The book is very fun to read and gives interesting recommendations; however, Rick Steve's books are not for those who want to explore an area deeply. He tends to give you the "whirlwind tour" along with the occassional interesting off-the-beaten path site, but doesn't give you the deep detail on every site you might be interested in. If you are spending significant time there and want to get deeper, I would use Rick's guides, along with Eyewitness Guides, when planning the trip for the broad outline only (and leave them at home), and then use Fodor's and Michelin's Guides to get deeply into the areas you want to explore (and take them with you).

Outdated. Should be taken off of the list.

Rick Steves fans know what you are getting. For the uninitiated, his travel philosophy is to travel better by traveling cheaper and closer to the people. If your idea of a dream vacation is sleeping on the eighth floor of a high-rise hotel for a fortune every night, this is the wrong book for you. If your idea of wonderful is to sleep in an exquisite four-poster bed at a Scottish B&B owned by a pleasant old lady who will talk to you for hours, all for [amt.] a night -- buy this book. Steves has three big strengths, which are all at work in this book: The most important, by far, is the accomodations. Steves consistently finds amazingly good buys among centrally located B&Bs with friendly owners. The only problem is that everybody knows this, so getting a room on short notice in the summer at one of his spots can be dicey. The second big strength is the practical guides to sights, which include lots of interesting little details that you won't find elsewhere while telling you in no-uncertain terms which sights are must sees and which ones you should skip. Over time, his picks may not always coincide with yours -- but I almost always found his stuff on-target. The third big-strength is Steves' travel philosophy, which is especially helpful to first-time travelers (or those venturing away from the Hilton for the first time). I highly recommend that you also check out Europe Through the Back Door, Steves' classic magnum opus, now in its 19th Edition.

In both 1998 and 1999, we travelled to Britain using Rick Steves as our primary guide. I have used other guidebooks before: Frommer, Let's Go, Rough Guides, and Lonely Planet. While I admire the detail in the latter two series, I trust Steves only in two important areas:
(1) Trustworthy accommodations recommendations (he and his people really do check out the places he recommends) and
(2) Useful training in the practical "how to" aspects of travel, such as how to phone home without using your overpriced American telephone credit card and how to take trains and other public transportation. The man is a serious educator: witness his entertaining PBS TV series. He is willing to make himself look like a dork to make you enjoy European travel.
On the negative side, Steves' restaurant recommendations are sparse and uadventurous (though this is an area in which no one excels). Also, in selling the areas in which he is most interested, he leaves out large areas of the British Isles (especially in Scotland, where the omission of Glasgow and the Orkneys may take some explaining).
In the rec.travel.europe newsgroup, Steves has legions of detractors and defenders. Mere mention of his name sets off knee-jerk flaming responses from people who do not understand him.
The simple fact is this: If you follow his recommendations --particularly if you are relatively new to European travel -- you are likely to have a better time. Why? The man is not afraid to be prescriptive (instead of largely descriptive like Lonely Planet). Also, you are not likely to waste as much money, because you will weight your trip more on the side of small towns than large cities.
