Good general guide

Reviewed on August 28, 2022
Paperback | Verified

A decent guide for a few days in the Brighton area. It does cover a large area so lacks some detail. Also it would have been nice to have some suggested country walks as well as the car tours included. The street maps of Brighton and the larger towns are quite good.
