The Rough Guide to Camping in Britain 2


Rough Guides are well known as backpacker essentials, and now they are helping campers too!  The Rough Guide to Camping in Britain reviews over 300 campsites from all corners of Britain, from the Isles of Scilly to Shetland, across the Yorkshire Hills, Hampshire, Welsh Islands and the Highlands.

The Rough Guide to Camping in Britain is written by Campers for Campers, so you can trust it for knowledgable reviews on the locations, having even tested the temperatures in the showers!

As well as campsites the book explores camping equipment, cooking, glamping, wild camping and festivals so there is something for everyone.  The book is full colour with pictures and maps throughout - a complete companion for the novice camper or a guide to some great sites for the more seasoned camper.  Whether you want snug tipis and creature comforts or simple sites in stunning wilderness locations, this guide has it covered.

Don’t just take my word for it, currently Amazon UK this book has an average rating of 4.6 out of 5.  The Amazon reviews give some great added insight too -

  • “provides good choice of campsite styles, from small and remote to alternative glamping. Some even deliver breakfast to your tent”
  • “the book itself is thick and heavy, so that as a cyclist or a hiker one wouldn’t like to carry it around.”
  • “The photography is wonderful (as most Rough Guides are) and the writing was very readable and not remotely patronising. By the end of that first weekend I had made a list of “Must Stay At” campsites…”
