Now in its sixth edition, the Rough Guide to England is the ultimate insider's guide. A team of veteran travel authors have turned their attention on their own backyard to unearth the hidden delights of this fascinating and richly diverse country. From remote beaches on the Norfolk coast and sublime cliff-top walks in south Devon, to atmospheric London drinking holes and the latest live music venues in Liverpool, the Rough Guide gives the inside-line to experiencing the best this country has to offer. There are informed accounts of every attraction from the old favourites to the latest additions such as the Eden Project in Cornwall and the Baltic Arts Centre in Newcastle. The Rough Guide is also as authoritative on England's history as it is on its contemporary culture, with illuminating commentary on the country's development from the Celts and Romans through to modern-day England. For outdoor enthusiasts there is practical advice on the multitude of activities available from surfing in Newquay to hiking the Yorkshire Dales. For every region there are detailed and fully referenced maps and plans.
