Product Description

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.

i never go to a new city without an Access guide 6 Sept. 2007
By shopper - Published on
Format: Paperback
i have travelled extensively for 30 yrs. i never go anywhere without 3 books: 1. Access guide for neighborhood details, a sense of where things are, and locals' favorite places. 2. Michelin's Green guide for an erudite perspective on history, culture, arts, etc. and 3. Frommer's for their "best of" pages.

when i lived in London, i took out my London Access book every week to plan where i would go that weekend. Every time i move to a new city i buy an Access guide to help me become a local. It is a great resource for travellers and new residents.
Not as good as other cities 1 July 2008
By Paul Williams - Published on
Format: Paperback
My Access guides for Paris and Rome are invaluable, but this one is pretty disappointing. London is just too big a city, only the central London areas are covered. It does a good job with the neighborhoods covered, just not enough of them.

Too much information? 26 Mar. 2007
By smy - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just got back from a weeklong trip to London and this was one of several guidebooks I took with me. The positive is that there's a lot of information listed and from talking to London friends, it's fairly good information. The hip happening restaurants are in there. I didn't like the format -- everything is listed by neighborhood but within each section, it's mixed so for instance, you cannot simply find a list of all their restaurants in Mayfair, you must flip through the entire Mayfair section to see the restaurant listings.

Ultimately, I found I used some of my other guidebooks a lot more.
