Publisher Comments:

You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go—they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!

Completely updated every year (unlike most of the competition), Frommer's England features information on all of the castles, cathedrals, palaces, and pubs that await you. In-depth, accurate, and detailed, Frommer's offers authoritative but fun-to-use coverage of all the top sights, plus lots of off-the-beaten track towns and attractions. We'll show you the best of London, including its world-class theater scene, then set off to explore the rest of England. You'll admire the dreaming spires of Oxford, hike the windswept moors and the lovely Lake District, go antiquing in the Cotswolds, tour the spectacular gardens and manor houses of Kent, and meet the locals in the most charming country pubs and tea houses.

You'll find candid reviews of a huge selection of accommodations in all price ranges, from chic boutique hotels and stately country house lodgings to homey B&Bs. It's all accompanied by dozens of color maps, the latest trip-planning advice on everything from bargain airfares to rail passes, money-saving tips, and a complete shopper's guide.
