I spent a while considering various different books of London walks and am very glad I chose this one. The walks often take you off the beaten track and down all sorts of interesting side streets and alleys, as well as past some of the more well-known sites and main roads. Each walk is packed full of interesting facts about the history of the places you pass and people associated with them, which you would otherwise probably never know. The written directions are very intuitive and the maps easy to follow, and there are often suggestions of places and areas to eat and drink on the way. There are various different lengths of walk so you can chose something to suit depending on how energetic you are feeling or how much time you have. I usually scan and then print out the relevant pages so the book doesn't get tatty or wet. A very good book and well-recommended.

This is a really good book of walks, generally around 2 to 4 miles. Andrew Duncan produces easy to follow walking guides that take one to many interesting parts of London, there is a good level of information about what can be seen, and each walk has a map. Although a paperback, the pages are stitched so it isn't going to fall apert if you like to take your walking guide with you.

It will leave you wanting more and therin lies a problem. This book is a compilation of walks from his other books. It has most, but not all, of "Walking London" and a selection from three others.

So my advice would be firstly - definitely get an Andrew Duncan book if you want a walking guide to London. And if you are making a one-off visit, or don't come to London much then do get this book as it really is a very good collection and has 50 walks to try.

BUT if you are a Londoner, or come to London fairly often and if you think you might want to do a lot of walking I would suggest that you don't get this. Instead, get "Walking London" and as you get some done, consider getting "Walking Secret London", "Walking Village London" and "Walking Notorious London" That way you'll end up with more walks to do and no duplication.

I bought this as a Christmas present for my brother who has just recently returned from living in New Zealand. He thinks it's excellent and is busily working his way through the walks.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent choice 26 April 2012
Verified Purchase
After joining a guided tour of a part of London unfamiliar to me, I realised that there was an awful lot of London that had passed me by. I looked for a book that would allow me to discover hidden parts of the city without the need to join a group. This book is exactly what I needed. The walks are very well planned, start near public transport and provide lots of information without being deluged with facts. I have covered 3 of the walks so far and really enjoyed the experience. In all cases, I have come home armed with topics to research further. My only ( minor ) complaint is the size of the book and it can be a pain carrying it around but it has provided hours of free entertainment and taken me to places close to the well known but until now invisible to me. A really good buy.
