Whether you fancy sampling some bloody royal history at the Tower of London or indulging in strawberries and cream at Wimbledon, The Rough Guide to London is the definitive insider's handbook to one of Europe's most exciting cities.
A full-colour section introduces many of London’s highlights with expert coverage of all the sights, from Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament to lively Covent Garden and the refurbished South Bank.
The guide includes comprehensive information on every corner of the city from swanky Kensington and Chelsea to trendy Clerkenwell and Hoxton and right out to Windsor. You'll find detailed accounts of all the palaces, museums and galleries, big and small, and why they're worth (or not worth) visiting as well as two new colour sections on the Thames and London for free.
There are up-to-date reviews of many of the capital's hotels and restaurants and specialist sections on nightlife, the gay and lesbian scene and classical arts, all written by London-based experts.
From Oxford Street to Camden Market, the guide comes complete with detailed information of the capitals best shopping-spots, plus maps and plans for every area.
