In the process of arranging a long weekend in London, I've borrowed this book from the local library, and found it absolutely invaluable - to the extent that I'll be buying a copy!

Everything that you need for a trip to London is there - maps, reviews of hotels and restaurants, walks, top tips, ideas for days out ... the list goes on!

It's got something in for everyone too, regardless of budget, so pack one to take with you, whether that's in a student rucksack or an upmarket suitcase!

In past years, I've got used to buy a Lonely Planet Guide before each travel.
Once more, I am very satisfied with this one. Awesomely updated (last edition), extremely useful, thoroughly detailed...
The only downside would be that they don't list many Youth Hostels or cheap eat-outs. It's more oriented to a "regular" traveler and I think nowadays there are more and more "low-budget" travelers who could profit for a more low-budget oriented guide.
All in all, a Lonely Planet Guide. That is, very complete and well informed!!
(After a few days in the backpack can get quite heavy though)

It has many details and I found it useful while sightseeing. As for me, it has too little pictures. Sometimes it is hard to see something when being in a new city and a photo of that something would be really helpful.

Having just returned from a long weekend in London I found this book a great read - lots of tips on where & when to visit, local info, off the beaten track tips, great guide to bars & restaurants, suggested walks and many other ideas. Overall a good buy.

I find it hard to know how seriously I should take Lonely Planet now but ultimately I think it prefers enthusiasm over accuracy and well-researched, valuable travel information. LP isn't careful or serious enough in this book and it isn't well-edited. LP waffles but even generalised waffle isn't always correct. This is LP on cricket: "Although the game was invented here, the English team has mostly struggled on the international stage" (P320). Gosh. That's not an easy statement to justify. LP waffles on about "the thwack of leather on willow" and "venerable Lord's" when it should be concentrating on providing solid information. It gets into an incoherent mess when it tries to explain ticketing for the different types of cricket. We're told the price of match tickets without being told that the prices mentioned (now much increased) refer only to Test matches (P320-321). LP wants to tell us that Test match tickets "can be difficult to get" (you have to interpret the meaning) and fails. LP could have just told us directly the truth that tickets for Test matches against Australia are harder to get than those against any other Test-playing nation. There's plenty of confused waffle in need of rewriting elsewhere e.g. the whole section on Private Eye magazine (P54). LP gets carried away in its section on the English language (P55) - it's simply weird. It's hard to beat "London is big on the web" (P19) for a pointless statement.

The arts and culture are areas that LP rarely covers well. They're topics which LP feels need to be included in its guides - but quickly with a few platitudes and generalisations and a hope that no one will spot or care about the errors. We're told Nicholas Hytner "slashed ticket prices" (P311) at the National Theatre. No, he didn't.

I now own over 30 Lonely Planet country guides - as an independent traveller I would never buy anything else.

This city guide is no different - the best.

Loads of info, loads of tips - quite simply, the only guide book you will ever need for London.

What more can I say?

Enjoy.

After 1 year and a half spent in London I've eventually decided to buy a guide of the city. This guide is pretty good. It explains a lot concerning the history of the several 'zones' of London - which is useful in order to have an idea of the reason why they are as they are. It also provides the reader with some insights of what to do where - which is fundamental in order to do not feel lost in such a big city. It is not expensive and - more important - it is quite small a book, so it can really be brought everywhere while one is travelling around the city. Obviously, it does not provide many information concerning the areas either far away or not very appreciated by tourists (I guess the latter is the criterion adopted for writing).Enjoy London and its guide, then!
