Rough Guides


Synonymous with practical travel tips, quality writing, and a trustworthy “tell it like it is” ethos, Rough Guides have been inspiring travellers on all budgets for 35 years.

Written by expert authors with real flair, Rough Guides are both indispensably practical and thoroughly entertaining. With a team of intrepid writers and researchers always out in the field, discovering the latest openings and roads less travelled, it’s no wonder that Rough Guides are beloved by millions of independent-minded travellers, and have won many awards.

Rough Guides to continents, regions and countries provide unparalleled area-by-area information, with exhaustively researched accommodation, eating, shopping and leisure recommendations, alongside detailed coverage of must-see sights and hidden gems. The meticulous mapping is a market leader in terms of quality and user-friendliness—always full colour, with clear numbered and colour-coded keys—and all Rough Guides feature full-colour photography throughout. The comprehensive practical content is set within fascinating cultural contexts, and delivered with Rough Guides’ hallmark honesty, flair and spirit of independence.
