This is a brand-new large-scale atlas from the best-selling Philip's "Road Atlas" series, with larger type making place names, street names and index more legible, and a unique listings section for country houses, gardens and other places to visit. The 176 pages of main road mapping are at the super-clear extra-large scale of 2 1/3 miles to 1 inch (Hebrides and Orkneys at 3 1/2 miles to 1 inch), and the atlas also includes route-planning maps, an M25 map, 12 large-scale city approach maps and 35 extra-detailed town and city plans. The city approach maps show named arterial roads and mark the locations of speed cameras. This is the best easy-read atlas on the market for leisure driving, with a huge amount of detail on places to visit. National and Forest Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are clearly depicted, and the layer-coloured contours show upland and highland areas. Long distance footpaths, viewpoints, beaches, golf courses, campsites and caravan sites are all marked on the maps.
The unique feature of the atlas is its illustrated listings section, with 850 concise descriptions of properties owned by the National Trust, National Trust for Scotland, English Heritage, Historic Scotland and of gardens owned by the Royal Horticultural Society. Numerous additional features include restricted motorway junction information, a distances chart (including journey times), and a central London street plan.
