I borrowed this book from the library, but as a result I am now ordering two copies for friends. My husband & I went to London for 5 days last week and I used this book to basically plan our stay. We have visited London on many occasions, so now we are looking for different ideas. I liked the way it is clearly divided into different areas, so it is easy to group attractions together. I found it accurate and helpful in that it says whether a museum if free or not and the website to go to for more details.
Day 1 pm we went to Leighton House and then the Roof Gardens that I had never heard of before.
Day 2 Dulwich & the Horniman Museum & Dulwich Picture Gallery - also well worth walking one way through Dulwich Park.
Day 3 Rotherhithe Street and along the Thames Path before busing down to Greenwich (Cutty Sark - not mentioned as it is a well-known attraction) and then across the river through the Foot Tunnel. Museum of London Docklands, which we didn't go to this time, is fabulous.
Day 4 City of London - walked along High Holburn - Staple Inn, up to Charterhouse Square, Barts Museum, to St Mary in Bow for lunch and a free organ recital (not mentioned in the book) and then to the Royal Bank of England Museum.
Day 5 - Chelsea & then central London - Royal Hospital & Chelsea Pensioners, walked up Old Church Street for the architecture (OK), Bomber Command Statue (not mentioned) Shepherd Market, Berry Bros & Rudd shop & then other things not in the book.
So thank you for helping us have such a successful week - your book made planning easier.
