James Sherwood, author of a number of definitive publications on English sartorial style, is the quintessential man-about-town.

In this witty, opinionated, and discerning guide to London, he draws on many years of partaking in the very best that the metropolis has to offer. Whether you want to breakfast like a king, drink cocktails in the company of sophisticated British personalities, or shop for antique jewelry, this handy volume will take you there.Beautifully packaged and produced, with stylish line illustrations, James Sherwood's Discriminating Guide to London includes information, advice, and a sardonic wit not to be found elsewhere.

Sherwood's supreme taste coupled with his firsthand knowledge of some of the most exclusive, exciting spots in London makes this guide a must-have for city slickers and jet setters alike.James Sherwood's Discriminating Guide to London is inspired by a 1970s publication of the same name by another James Sherwood (no relation) who is today the owner of the Orient-Simplon Express and luxury hotels and restaurants around the world. The older Sherwood contributes a foreword to this new guide.
