The Rough Guide to Britain
by Robert Andrews, Jules Brown, Rob Humphreys, Phil Lee, Donald Reid

The single most important thing to remember when travelling here is that you're visiting not one country, but three: England, Wales and Scotland. For visitors foreign and domestic, that means contending with three capital cities (London, Cardiff and Edinburgh) and three sets of national identity - not to mention the myriad accent shifts as you move between them.
