about

Insight Guide Great Britain is an essential full-color guide to the rich cultural history and modern-day attractions of the three countries - England, Scotland and Wales - which make up this varied and fascinating land. Our inspirational Best of Great Britain section highlights unmissable sights and experiences, while a comprehensive Travel Tips section gives you all the practical information you need to plan your trip. Our selective listings for hotel and restaurants are the personal recommendations of our local authors and direct visitors to authentic establishments with local character, from castles to campsites. Lavish Photo Features offer a unique insight into the country's prehistoric sites, stately home and gardens, the world-famous British Museum and Scotland's castles and abbeys. With a longer and more in-depth history and culture section than its competitors, it provides a fascinating introduction to Britain's rich history and social eccentricities, and gives the low down on peerages and the monarchy. The informative text, written by local experts, is a pleasure to read and accompanied by beautiful photography. A detailed Places section, with full-color maps, guides you around the distinct regions which make up this densely populated island, from the busy streets of London to the picturesque villages of the Cotswolds and the breathtaking beauty of Snowdonia in Wales and the Highlands of Scotland.

Michael Macaroon is a writer specializing in travel and the arts. Having lived in various parts of Britain, he is now based in London. While he enjoys the hubbub of the big city, his favorite place remains the North Norfolk coast, where he goes for bucket-and-spade holidays with his 2-year-old son.
