About the Author

A native of North Carolina, Darwin Porter was a bureau chief for the Miami Herald when he was 21 and was assigned to write the very first edition of a Frommer’s guide devoted solely to one European country. Since then, he has written numerous best-selling Frommer’s guides, notably to France, Italy, and Germany. In 1982, he was joined in his research efforts across England by Danforth Prince, formerly of the Paris bureau of the New York Times, who has traveled in and written extensively about England. Together, they are also the authors of Frommer’s London, Frommer’s England, Frommer’s England from $70 a Day, and Frommer’s Scotland.
