3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book but dont use it as your main guide
I live in London so enjoyed finding a few quirky little places and ideas. If you are visiting and want to see the main places and "do" everthing stick with rough guides, lonely planets etc. It is however a lovely little book to snuggle up with and plan a day out in London if you have seen everything most people see when they come here.

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit too dated for my taste, 22 April 2014

This review is from: City Secrets London (Hardcover)
City Secrets London takes an interesting approach to producing a London Guide: it uses what noted writers have said about London in the past to reflect the London of today. And as you would hope from literary publishers like Granta it looks like a thorough piece of work. But what stopped me from buying it was its retro design: someone has gone to a lot of time and trouble to produce a book that looks and feels like a drab school textbook from the 1960s - it is a smallish format hardback printed in black throughout. I would have forgiven much if the maps at least had been printed in colour, but no, they also appear in shades of grey. Ah well, as someone who was at school in the 1960s perhaps I am not their target market.
