The Times Atlas of Britain: National Atlas of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - Times UK Wonderfully informative. I'm impressed with the detail in this. The maps are large enough to show the names of even the smallest village. The book is separated by country then county with photos, vital statistics and and information on towns and cities of note. There's also info on climate, population, economic activity, the transport system, tourism and energy production, plus a 30+ page index.
