I happily confess to being an Anglophile. It all started when I spent part of my junior year of college in Bath. I absolutely fell in love with the city and the country. So, this title was just my cup of (English) tea. Bath is in the southwest and it is an area that I explored in depth. This meant that when I looked at this title, I had a pretty good sense of whether the descriptions and places to visit were accurate and enticing. They are!
I like the book’s organization. There are chapters on interests as, for example, the area for walks and hikes or for history buffs or for foodies and more. There are also sections that are based on geographical areas. Other helpful chapters cover getting around, practical information and things to know before taking off. There are also many maps and links to websites..
Anyone planning to travel in the South Coast area and even armchair travelers are sure to enjoy this book. I know that I did. It is just packed with gorgeous photos and information.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
