Part shopping guide, part lifestyle handbook, 'The Essential Guide to London's Retro Shops' is a timely and colourful celebration of the growing demand for all things vintage. Whether it's sixties scooters, vintage clothes, or original furniture classics, the passion for the recent past is causing a stir worldwide, and nowhere more so than in London. Appealing to locals and tourists alike, this guide covers a huge variety of retro shops sorted into five main types: furniture and design (Pad), clothing and accessories (Threads), music (Tunes), cars, scooters and bikes (Wheels), and cafes and bars (Nosh). The book is divided into five London regions, each with its own detailed map. All the entries include an engaging description of what the shop or venue has to offer, together with contact information and opening times. The shops and their goods are illustrated with the author's own high-quality photographs. This unique book, impeccably researched and written by an expert in the field, will be a welcome addition to the choice of shopping guides to London.
