A thriving, invigorating mix of old and new, monarchy and democracy, London's unique character has long ensured it a special place within the heart of England. Visitors love this city that is at once ancient and modern, reserved and tempestuous: a provincial settlement on the edge of the civilized world, a trading district dominated by merchants and aldermen, a royal stronghold, a center of politics, power and culture – the city's many faces endears it to many travelers.

For those in search of the many facets of London, Access London is the ultimate guide. Comprehensive, fully updated and filled with revised maps, sidebars and points of interest, we bring to life this bustling center of culture, history and commerce with that requisite touch of class, and the promise to acquaint you royally with its character and charm.
