Out of Date & Disappointing

Reviewed on August 17, 2022
Paperback | Verified

I usually love the Rough Guides; I have a collection & we always use them on holiday. Even if it's somewhere we've visited 3 or 4 times before, we always find new places to visit after reading the local Rough Guide.
Well, apart from this one!
We bought it for Cornwall, a place we've visited before. However, there is absolutely nothing in here we didn't already know about. The descriptions are very brief, with limited information and nothing of interest.
Also, it's very out of date! Despite showing as being published at the end of 2021, there's no mention of the footbridge across the gorge at Tintagel - which opened in August 2019!
And the entrance prices are sometimes up to £10 below the actual cost!
Sorry, just nothing to recommend this book,
