An essential book for those who love exploring London
on 5 January 2002
What a great book! It is full of fascinating facts and information that your average London guide book doesn't give you! It made me want to explore the city in much more detail! I was rather disappointed to see that the House of Detention in Clerkenwell has actually closed down now, so perhaps the book needs to be updated? Nevertheless, the chapter on all the subterranean tunnels under London, was fascinating - especially the section on disused tube stations. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys discovering the other side of London.
