Good, but was hoping to have a fold-out map of England and not just London enclosed. Will return to the Library and scope on! Read full review

Some of you will think this is lame, but this is over 800 pages and I read the entire thing. I know much more about England now and am planning a fun trip - if only the airfare wasn't so damn expensive! Read full review
