A lot of information packed into one book, some interesting facts throughout. Helpful when telling you how to avoid queues (visiting the Natural History Museum if the main entrance is busy, use the side entrance on exhibition road) this came in very handy, we took the books advice walked straight in with no queuing, Great!!.

Disappointed with the range of restaurant options and advice, we stayed close to the theatre district, Victoria and it only listed one place to eat at! so we had to find out on our own, places to eat. We would have like a bit more help on the matter of food and eating...

This is a bit early to review the guide, because I have not visited London yet. However, the stucture is good (boroughs-then general information) with plenty information about each sight or visitable place, together with visiting times, ticket prices, etc.
The reading itself is quite a treat: witty and ironic. The guide itself is a good summer book.
We'll see!
We saw: the guide is good, it offers you lots of ideas for a London walk and a London visit. Helped me though a several week stay in London.
The restaurants however, are a bit too overvalued. Then, London has lots and lots of good places...

Another good rough guide. Very informative, pointing out pieces of information and places to see (that may other wise have been missed), in addition to the obvious grand attractions.

I use this book each time I go to London. It is very complete, very helpful. As always, the Rough Guide series never disppoints me.

Very comprehensive! 7 Mar. 2008
By Jennifer Baxter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rough Guides have always been my favorites, and this was no exception. It provides a comprehensive guide to all areas of the city of London, and includes hotels, cafes, pubs, shopping, etc. It also makes for an entertaining read, although I question how much the author actually likes living in London. (The book actually states that "disappointingly, London has had only 2 assassinations." This is a disappointment?!) In addition to the sections on each part of the city, the appendix has a decent history of London, as well as a list of other books about the city.

For anyone who plans to spend a substantial amount of time in London, this will be an indispensable guide. I tend to leave the country for a couple months at a time, and thus rely completely on these guides. However, it's not the best choice if you simply plan on going for a weekend, since there is no way you'll be able to do and see it all....I would then suggest something like Frommer's Top Ten: London instead.
Great guide book!!! 31 Mar. 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I love the entire Rough Guide series of books! They have great maps, provide detail of all the different eating options, sightseeing options, have phone numbers, hours of operation... just everything you would need in one small book!! I've bought the Rough Guide for several different trips in different locations and always been very pleased! I didn't make it to London on my last trip to Europe but it's in the book case ready for our future trip there!!!

good detail 20 July 2006
By JD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I tend to like the rough guides, they go into much detail on the sites. An alternative is an audio guide. soundwalks(i think more for NYC) and [...] are also great for london guides.

The rough guides I think are one of the better alround books.
