This is an easy-to-read edition of Philip's best-selling road atlas, using fully updated computer-generated mapping. The 288 pages of main road mapping are at the super-clear scale of 2 1/3 miles to 1 inch (Hebrides and Orkneys at 4 2/3 miles to 1 inch), and the atlas also includes route-planning maps, an M25 map, 12 large-scale city approach maps and 35 extra-detailed town and city plans. This is the best large-scale atlas on the market for leisure driving, with a huge amount of detail on places to visit. National and Forest Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty are clearly depicted, and the layer-coloured contours show upland and highland areas. Long distance footpaths, viewpoints, beaches, golf courses, campsites and caravan sites are all marked on the maps. The mapping clearly marks roundabouts and multi-level junctions, and in rural areas distinguishes between roads above and below 4 metres wide - a boon for caravaneers and drivers of wide vehicles. The atlas also includes route-planning maps, an M25 map, 12 large-scale city approach maps, 55 extra-detailed town and city plans, airport and port plans.
A unique feature of the atlas is its illustrated listings section, with 850 concise descriptions of properties owned by the National Trust, National Trust for Scotland, English Heritage, Historic Scotland and of gardens owned by the Royal Horticultural Society. Numerous additional features include restricted motorway junction information, a distances chart (including journey times), and a central London street plan. Extra-large scale (2 1/3 miles to 1 inch) gives exceptional legibility. It includes: 288 pages of clear detailed mapping, ideal for leisure drivers; ultra-legible 48 page index; unique illustrated listings section with 850 houses and gardens open to the public; 12 pages of city approach maps, an M25 map; and 35 town and city plans, along with a Route-planning section. It also distinguishes narrow lanes over and under 4m wide.
