This unusual travel guide is written for those people who want to read beyond the jumble of blurbs and information that fills most travel books. Readers who want to enhance their visit to Britain by knowing something about language use, won't be teased by short and superficial remarks, nor exhausted by the task of ploughing through several volumes. Yet, this book is also very practical, giving information about such things as accommodation and food. Highlights include: castles, cathedrals, stately homes, villages, and towns. An essential guide covering history, geography, politics, culture, economics, climate and language use.
