What a neat little book. Well actually, it’s not so little but neat nevertheless. Walks is chock full of excellent pictures throughout with accurate and descriptive guides to some of the great historical places in Britain, ranging from ancient times to the modern day. This is a thoroughly used book in my house and sits just outside our bathroom door. When I finally have enough of a savings to travel to Britain, this will be packed along right next to the traveler’s checks. ( )
