I've changed my plans for my May 2018 trip. I'll be visiting England only in May. I've got the 2013 Kindle edition of Rick's Great Britain guide on Kindle and I've been reading it again the last couple of days. I was thinking of getting the Kindle edition of the latest England guide since I see it's 976 pages. However, I'll be focusing on cities only with no desire to drive. Rick spends a lot of time on places like the Cotswalds which I have no desire to see. I'm trying to decide between a bunch of cities, thanks to the Ibis Hotel promotion that I just received by email. Places like Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds, York, Newcastle, Birmingham,Hull, Manchester (I've been), Liverpool (I've been), and probably starting out in London, which I know fairly well.
I've got Rick's guides to the National Gallery, British Library, City of London, and West End.
Should I spend the $15 for the Rick Steves England and is there any chance a 2018 version will be coming out soon.
