5.0 out of 5 stars The most comprehensively helpul London travel book ever!, 21 July 1998
By A Customer
This book and the others in the series (e.g. for Paris and Rome) provide photos, drawings and diagrams of what other books only tell about in print. Beautifully designed and easy to use, this is the one superb resource to read before your trip; you'll know London before you arrive. And during your visit you'll refer to it continually. You'll get a satisfying balance of information about the city's history, culture, arts, neighborhoods, customs, traditions, shopping, events, transporation and more...plus an excellent "survival guide" section...and detailed street and subway maps and recommendations about carefully screened lodging, restaurants and shopping. We don't travel without the Eyewitness Travel Guide. While this book is similar in style and layout to the equally excellent Knopf guides, I find a better balance of information in the Eyewitness Guides.

5.0 out of 5 stars You must have this book before traveling to London., 17 Mar 1998
By A Customer
This is the best book for travel to London that I have found. Don't bother buying any of the other books, this one has it all! It has convient maps of London, maps of all of the museums, and it even makes sure you won't look like a tourist using the Tube.

5.0 out of 5 stars London, 16 Dec 2007
I bought this in combo package with Great Britain (Eyewitness Travel Guides). However, I think it is not worth to have them both as Great Britain travel book cover quite a lot in London part. But if i were coming to England and only visit London then i will consider to buy this book.

However, I live in Central London and I found this book quite useful source of travel around outskirt London. In addition the Great Britain travel book only cover the main tourist attraction.

Pro: Great graphic, Maps, good sources of facts, good size

Con: none

Summary: Buy this if you only visit London. If you want to travel around Great Britain then Great Britain travel book is a better choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but no attitude, 2 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This is the tour book equivalent of the one volume encylopedia. Covers the topic well, but not much in the way of attitude. However, if you have limited time to see the tourist attractions, this is probably the best on the market. If you want to see the "real" London, get a Rough Guide or the Time Out Guide to London. You'll find out not only what to see, but what's not worth the bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars London Tiurist Book, 6 Jun 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a number of these DK Eyewitness tourist books & this is as good as the others i've got. Living quite near London i realised i did not know that much about my home city, the book goes into the nitty gritty of information that, as a visiter you would want to know. It shows you how to get about & the best transport to the tourist attractions, where to stay, where to eat & loads more.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Guide, 9 Mar 2011
By 
Anna (Warsaw, Poland) - See all my reviews
I've seen and own many guides, but this is the ultimate one. I've been to London many times and I've never travelled without this book. It describes the most important sights in great detail, but it also describes places that aren't well-known. History, practical information, walks - it has everything. When I go somewhere new, I always try to get an Eyewitness Travel Guide and I haven't been disappointed yet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good general guide, 31 Dec 2010

V. Hunter "smiley chops" (Cumbria) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
My only comment is that because it is a comprehensive guide it is not pocket sized! You'll need a big bag and a strong shoulder for lugging it around London.
I got loads of use out of it when visiting, even better for trip pre-planning at home.

4.0 out of 5 stars good but heavy book, 30 Dec 2010
This book was very useful for going around the city and learn, see pictures about buildings where you should but don`t want to pay a fee (for e.house of parlament). Brief descriptions are alright, colour pictures very good but too heavy to carry around all day long.

Very complete guide, not very good to carry around since it's heavy. Precise maps and actual information.
