Rough Guides


Rough Guides was found in 1981 by a recent graduate, Mark Ellingham, who couldn't find a suitable travel guide for his trip to Greece. He and a few friend set about writing a guide and 20 years later they now publish a range of travel guides to more than 200 destinations.

They also publish:
  • Dictionary phrasebooks to 22 major languages
  • History guides ranging from Ireland to Islam
  • Maps printed on rip-proof and waterproof Polyart™ paper
  • Music guides running the gamut from Opera to Elvis
  • Restaurant guides to London, New York and San Francisco
  • Reference books on topics as diverse as the Weather and Shakespeare
  • Sports guides from Formula One to Manchester United
  • Pop culture books from Lord of the Rings to Cult TV
  • World Music CDs in association with World Music Network
