As well as covering in depth all the obvious London attractions, such as St Paul's Cathedral, the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace, this fully revised and updated edition introduces the visitor to some of the capital's less well-known delights. How many people know of the Fan Museum at Greenwich, the Bethnal Green Museum of childhood, or the tranquility of the Inns of Court in the very centre of the city? If it is shopping or culture you want, this guide can direct you straight to the main attractions and there are also excursions to everywhere from the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew to Cambridge. Up-to-date and practical in both coverage and format, this guide gives visitors all the information they need to enjoy the holiday of their choice. Between 25 and 35 alphabetically listed topics such as museums, nightlife, restaurants and many more, together with two comprehensive gazetteer sections, the first covering the history and culture of the destination and the second providing an abudance of travel tips and information, ensure that the traveller knows where to go and what to do with no time wasted.
Recommended walks and suggested excursions are accompanied by relevant individual maps so that the user doesn't get lost and gets the most out of a visit. Specially commissioned photography for this guide imparts a freshness and flavour to the destination, so that the traveller can begin to enjoy the visit as soon as the book is opened.show more
