Book Description

25 Feb 2011
Aimed at overseas tourists, as well as Londoners eager to discover a different side of their city, this unique, fully updated walking guide reveals the unexpected country character of London's inner boroughs and outer suburbs. In 22 meticulously planned, original walks, "Walking Village London" uncovers London's prettiest and most historic villages - from bustling Kensington and Rotherhithe in the city centre to hilltop Monken Hadley in the north and unspoilt Carshalton in the south. Celebrated historian Andrew Duncan is the reader's personal guide, providing fascinating historical and anecdotal information on the villages, as well as the colourful characters who have populated and shaped them through the centuries. Full-colour photographs capture each village's refreshing rural charms, while clear, easy-to-follow route maps pinpoint places of interest and the best restaurants and cafes to be found en route. This title is suitable for: overseas tourists seeking to veer off the beaten track; London residents; and, history enthusiasts and walkers.

5.0 out of 5 stars village London not an oxymoron 15 Feb 2011
By K. Platt TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This is an updated version of Andrew Duncan's book. It offers twenty-two walks through London's villages. The 2-4 mile walks are easily accessed from the centre of London. They are ideal for tourists or for Londoners. The overall London map shows the position of the villages and there is guidance to choosing a village to visit by distance, location or length of walk. The walks clearly state the mileage, what to see with opening times at the back for some of the attractions and a map. It also indicates where to obtain refreshments. The text is informative and interesting. This is an ideal book for anyone wanting to get to know London better. I have visited some and missed out on the details that this book provides - next time, I'll make sure I have my copy with me. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great London (Villages) walking book 28 Jan 2013
By CN
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a fine walking book for visiting villages that have been "over-run" with the growth of London but which have kept much of their charm and history. For each walk, it really benefits from reading the section on the chosen walk before venturing out. This then allows one to get a proper flavour for what is to be seen as the details can be missed otherwise: it is also good to mark on the route map, beforehand, where the sights mentoned are.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful guide 19 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my husband and as we live near Blackheath we decided to make that our first walk. We enjoyed the walk and also learnt a little of the history of the area as well as discovering more of the area. Looking forward to the next walk.
