Countrywide practical information is given
in this Directory chapter. For details on
specific areas, flip to the relevant regional
chapters.

ACCOMMODATION
Accommodation in Britain is as varied as the
sights you visit, and – whatever your budget –
is likely to be your main expense. From hip
hotels and grand castles to tiny cottages and
basic barns, the wide choice is all part of the
attraction, and from our research across the
country we’ve made the numerous recommendations throughout this book.

B&Bs & Guesthouses
The B&B (bed and breakfast) is a great British institution. Basically, you get a room in
somebody’s house, and at smaller places you’ll
really feel part of the family. Larger B&Bs may
have four or five rooms and more facilities.
‘Guesthouse’ is sometimes just another name
for a B&B, although they can be larger, with
higher rates.
In country areas your B&B might be in a
village or isolated farm; in cities it’s usually
a suburban house. Wherever, facilities usually reflect price – for around £15 to £20 per
person you get a simple bedroom and share
the bathroom. For around £25 you get extras

PRACTICALITIES
„ Be ready for a bizarre mix of metric and imperial measures in Britain; for example, petrol is

sold by the litre, but road-sign distances are given in miles.
„ Read up on current events in the Sun or Mirror tabloids, or get a more incisive view in the

(from right to left, politically) Telegraph, Times, Independent or Guardian quality papers.
„ Relish the satire, then cringe at tales of corruption, in weekly no-frills mag Private Eye.
„ Use plugs with three flat pins to connect appliances to the 220V (50Hz AC) power supply.
„ Turn on the TV, and watch some of the finest programmes in the world from the multi-

channel BBC, closely followed by boundary-pushing Channel 4.
„ Tune into BBC radio for a wide range of shows, and no adverts. Half the households in Britain

PRACTICALITIES
Be ready for a bizarre mix of metric and imperial measures in Britain; for example, petrol is
sold by the litre, but road-sign distances are given in miles.
Read up on current events in the Sun or Mirror tabloids, or get a more incisive view in the
(from right to left, politically) Telegraph, Times, Independent or Guardian quality papers.
Relish the satire, then cringe at tales of corruption, in weekly no-frills mag Private Eye.
Use plugs with three flat pins to connect appliances to the 220V (50Hz AC) power supply.
Turn on the TV, and watch some of the finest programmes in the world from the multi-
channel BBC, closely followed by boundary-pushing Channel 4.
Tune into BBC radio for a wide range of shows, and no adverts. Half the households in Britain
have digital radio and TV, but for those still on analogue, the wavelengths are: BBC Radio 1
(98.8MHz FM); Radio 2 (88-92MHz FM); BBC Radio 3 (91.3 MHz FM); Radio 4 (93.5MHz FM).
For content details see p67 . The Today show on Radio 4 (mornings to 9am) is a national
institution, the aural equivalent of browsing through the papers then personally grilling the
politicians. National commercial stations include Virgin Radio (1215Hz MW) and pleasantly
nonhighbrow classical specialist Classic FM (100-102MHz FM).
