Michelin Green Guide : Scotland (4th Ed)
  I am including this green guide because I feel that travelers to England are missing a lot if they do not also visit Scotland. The green guide combines mythology, culture, and history into this insightful guide. The green guide rates the sites as well as provides important information about them. For the larger sites, it provides maps, and tours. This guide book is great companion to for Rick Steves' book.

Other Guide Books

These guide books seem popular but I have never read them so I can not give any feedback on them.
Let's Go London Many people find Let's Go to be a bit large and confusing. However, it is written by students and it sells thousands of copies so I guess some people like it. You can also order "Let's Go"'s map of London. I do find their maps helpful.
Fodor's London This book seems to get good reviews.
Fodor's Great Britain All England version of the above book.
Eyewitness Great Britain Many people like this book because of its detailed pictures. It lets you know what to expect before you get there. Eyewitness London As I said with Rick Steves', London is a big city. This book gives you pictures. A help in the numerous museums.
