Streetwise, the best maps around!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Streetwise London (Map)
I got my first Streetwise in 1995 when I first came to London. It's been invaluable to me and when I lost mine, I quickly ran out and bought a newer, updated version. Streetwise is terrific for many reasons. It easily fits in a handbag (even a small one) or back pack, folds like an accordion for easy opening, is laminated and immune to rain and other London-like conditions, and looks almost as new as the day I bought it. As a reference guide, I often find I can rely on the map rather than the A-Z, the ubiquitous Londoners bible. All museums are labelled, even big hotels are, and shopping streets are highlighted. It includes a good tube map and a list of important streets and places to see. Good for the Londoner and the visitor and I have convinced all my friends to buy it as well.
