Glossy pages. Written by areas, then lists what can be seen in that area and a brief description of that place including some contact information. Well done, and includes Wales and Scotland! Descriptions are about a paragraph in length, and much to my delight as a potential tourist it tells you if the thing is in good repair or not. I would hate to go see Castle Happy only to get there and find the foundation stones only. I have had that in some tour books, it will say "steps to the beach" and its a rope ladder down a cliff, or you get there and its a total tourist trap all phony or you get there and all that is left is the east wall. Grrrrrrr. I think a good review should give you operating hours, a phone number, info about web page and a real review of whether it is worth your time like "authentic" (or not), or "replica" or one room tour, or $28 for a tour of a colonial kitchen, or "listen to the audio tour, better than the walking one" or stuff to give you a heads-up, "no bathroom" or "no elevators" or mile walk from parking lot, or "no place to sit down", so that tourists can decide intelligently and not be unpleasantly surprised when the Paul Revere House (what, me bitter?) is a walk through 2 rooms. Michie Tavern in Virginia had the best tour EVER, (at least it did 20 years ago), that's what reviews should say, not "husband liked it" or "okay" that tells you nothing.
