This comprehensive, prize-winning guide introduces the reader, whether visitor or resident, to the unparalleled visual wealth and historical interest found in London's neighbourhoods, architecture and cultural sites. Ann Saunders' lively style, enthusiasm and narrative gift bring her topographical survey to life, enriching it with historical information and details of the people who built London as well as those living in it. This tome stands out with its thorough and sympathetic treatment of London's suburbs - paying unprecedented homage to their little-known wealth of old village centres, medieval churches and fine houses.
