Format: Paperback
I spend a weekend in London every year, and have seen all the main attractions and some of the less-visited ones. I looked at this book and a few similar ones on my most recent visit, and this looked the most interesting. It turned out to be a good choice. My wife and I did two of the 13 walks (Notting Hill and Spitalfields & Whitechapel); we'd been to both areas previously, but having the book with us made them far more interesting. The book gives a great picture of the history of the areas, and focuses not just on existing buildings, but also the people who frequented the area. It points out things 99% of visitors would otherwise overlook (e.g., a small Jewish coat of arms in Whitechapel, the premises of the Whitechapel Bell Foundry - the oldest surviving manufacturing company in the UK, the locations of some of Jack the Ripper's crimes, the scene of Jimi Hendrix's death ...). There are many small colour photographs to make sure that the reader doesn't miss anything. There is much more detail than in a standard guide book, but it is entertainingly written, and covers everything from architecture, immigration and cultural influences to movies and criminals. The only problem I experienced was that the maps weren't always entirely accurate (e.g. slightly misplaced locations of a couple of attractions), but with a little bit of looking around there was no problem finding everything. As the previous reviewer noted, the book is an entertaining read even if you are not doing the walks, and with its help I'm already planning our next visit.

Just got this... We got booked one and LOVED it! I've only given this four stars for now as we've not done the walks. I'll come back later once we've done them and fully expect to upgrade it. They're such good and interesting walks. We were desperate to find out what walks there were in book two whilst we were still on book one so thought I'd put a breakdown on here:

- Covent Garden and St Giles
- Marylebone
- St james
- Strand, Embankment & Fleet Street
- The City: Easter Walk
- Clerkenwell
- Hoxton & Shoreditch
- Kings cross, st Panc and Camden
- Kensington
- Chelsea and Brompton Cemetery
- Lambeth & Vauxhall
- Bermondsey and Rotherhithe

Enjoy!

The second book of this series is equally good as the first one. The walks are interesting, varied and well-explained. Ideal for a weekend walk. It's also easy to create your own walk out of several walks from this book and the first one by using the maps at the beginning of each walk. So if you're not interested in everything of one particular work, you can combine a few stops out of 2 or 3 walks.

The only slightly negative point I can say is that the maps are highly simplified (probably unavoidable to fit the page), so that quite some streets are simply missing. In the beginning, I thouht I missed the right street, but found out that it was actually still a couple of blocks ahead after checking my phone. According to the map, it would have been the next street, which it definitely wasn't.

Apart from that, I had the impression that the book was in places poorly proofread with several typos and errors (e. g. Oxford Street Station instead of Oxford Circus station), but that might be knitpicking (I am a professional proofreader).

When I found out that Stephen Millar's LONDON's HIDDEN WALKS - volume 1 - which I was the first to review on Amazon - was going to be followed by a second volume I simply could not believe my luck. However, with the amount of times I was informed of the release date being postponed I came to the point where I'd given up all hope of learning about the selection of walks the author had mentioned in the introduction to his first volume.
Stephen Millar's LONDON's HIDDEN WALKS - volume 2 is another gem! If you've read and enjoyed the first volume, you will love this one just as much. If you haven't, who cares? You'll read it, enjoy it (that I can promise) and then decide to find out about the first volume. Brilliant!!! And I believe another volume is in the air -judging by the introduction to the second volume.
Stephen Millar, you are (really) spoiling us! RESPECT!!!

The previous reviews for this must have been for Volume 1 of this series - as this book (Vol.2) has only just been properly released.

Just as exceptional as Volume 1 - great historical insight and excellent images. Some real hidden gems that I never knew existed in the city! Fully recommended. According to the author, there is also a Volume 3 due to come out in the future as well!

I can concur with other reviewers these books are absolutely fantastic! All 3 books are small enough for your pocket or handbag, yet jam-packed with information. Book 1 has 13 walks - books 2 & 3 12 walks. Each walk starts with a map that is really easy to use - the map has places of interest marked on them - so that you can't miss stuff - for sure, you will see things you wouldn't have done without these books. After the map each walk has an outstanding narrative on the places of interest so you can get the most out of your walk. As well as all the historical stuff there are suggestions of places to eat and drink. Some of the pubs in these guides are truly amazing! The photos in these books are beautiful too! Thank You Stephen Millar. Can't wait for volume 4 :)
