Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From Lamb's Conduit Street to Clarendon Cross, there are dozens of tucked away villages in London to be unearthed. Both charming gift and valuable resource, this is a jumping off point for exploring the city in a new way. Photographs and illustrated maps for each village reflect the individuality of the area, while a short text offers an overview of each village, and puts it into the context of its surrounding area, before expertly highlighting the best local shops, cafe's and public spaces to visit. Both Londoners and visitors are forever looking for new ways to explore this great city. For Londoners, enjoying the capital at the weekend means avoiding the tourist traps by finding secret establishments and off-radar delights. For visitors, London can feel like an overwhelming monolith that's impossible to penetrate; this book will help them to feel like a local and understand why the city is beloved by so many.
