A guidebook that makes you wish to visit the place!!!

A delightful book about a delightful town! We literally used the book step by step!
What I especially liked were the short “history lessons”, spiked with saucy, little scandal tales! I wish my history professor in school was like that, it would have made me like history much more!
I usually do not like guidebooks that are written endlessly long. this one was so interesting, that I was sorry when I finished it!

In reading Jonathan Copeland’s “Walking Tour of Rye, the most beautiful town in England,” I felt as though I was right there rather than sitting at my desk in Australia. It came as a surprise to me that this town should have accumulated such a big slice of the history of England over the years. Well done!
