5.0 out of 5 stars Itching to do some of these walks, 18 Jan 2012
This review is from: London's Hidden Walks: Volume 1 (Explore London) (Paperback)
I should first say I already know London fairly well, having lived and worked there for the first 30 years of my life, before moving elsewhere (and I do love walking round London).

Note also I have no other London walks books to compare this book with, so I am just reviewing it in isolation.

I must also admit that while I have read through the book from the comfort of my home, I have yet to do any of the walks.

However just reading through the book, reading the various anecdotes about the different buildings and areas and people, and looking at the small pictures, has made me very keen to do all these walks.

My only problem is which one to do first, as they all look so interesting.

I must admit when the book first arrived I was a little disappointed at how small it was, probably smaller than the average postard, though it is quite thick.

But as soon as I started to read the book I was hooked and knew I would be doing a number of these walks as soon as I could.

So I can highly recommend it.

Only two very minor criticisms:

1) At the begining of each walk it would be useful to have a short overview of the area in which you are walking. Not everyone knows the different areas of London and a short overview of the type of area, and a brief history, would be useful (though it does often unfold during the walk).

2) As the book is small the writing is quite small and at my age (60+) reading the book can be a little hard work (though I do admit I need new glasses).

However don't let these small criticisms put you off buying the book as I can highly recommend it.
