Format: Paperback
Whether you are a local seeking a new perspective of the Capital, or a first-time visitor trying to establish an overview of London, this highly original guidebook should prove invaluable. The prose is precise, engaging and informed, packed with the sort of detail that both enlightens and entertains. Discover which building enjoys the soubriquet "Streaky Bacon", from which hill news of victory at Waterloo was transmitted by semaphore, and another reason why British tennis fans on Henman Hill would probably be better served facing the other way. It took only moments to feel totally at home with the book's layout: each viewing point is provided with historical background, practical information and a colourful description of key landmarks in various directions, brought to life by an abundance of crisp and eloquent photographs. Innovative features such as the beautifully drawn topograhical maps - each centred on a principal location - and a height chart profiling several of the city's iconic buildings, further embellish the text. This insider's guide, revealing as it does some of London's visual treasures, is a little gem in itself. The only drawback to this delightful and insightful book is that it might well create a new breed of 'anoraks' determined to view the city from every vantage point described. I will probably be one of them.

Genius idea! Looking down on London from various point I usually look up to. Can't recommend it enough.
Would love to be able to experience the view from the Shard or BT Tower myself. How cool would that be...

Format: Paperback
I read this book as I was keen to find a good and original spot from which to show London's buildings to a first-time visitor. It was so helpful, suggesting many options throughout the city that I'd never have heard/thought of. A wealth of information and excellent photographs accompany the suggestions, providing historical context and a visual teaser of wonderful views that await.

Conveniently sized, succinctly written reviews of various London buildings and locations accessible to the public. Some free access but much by special arrangement. A good buy for explorers of London
