The book lived up to all expectations. It is even more invaluable for the London Loop, as the path is not completely signposted in every area yet. If you are going to walk the London Loop, you need this guide!
Also included are a number of interesting facts about places and landmarks that you come across on your journey. Despite living in London all of my life, there were many things that I was not aware of. Fascinating stuff.
I am very happy reading OS maps in the country, but WHAT a pity that the 'specially annotated' Ordinance Survey Map extracts that are printed in the Book do NOT show actual road names, only a very occasional Road Number! Great to have the actual footpaths shown on Open Land and Public Commons, but SO easy to get lost in a strange town where virtually all the roads shown are un-identified: this is a MAJOR flaw. Be sure to take an A-Z Guide, or a GPS as well, and you will find this to be the ideal solution to the "precisely where ARE we?" query that keeps coming again and again.
Tony DThe London Loop (Recreational Path Guide)
The maps included are brilliant, it would cost a lot of money to buy all the corresponding OS maps.
I havn't yet completed the loop, so I can not comment on the accuracy of the directions.
However this book greatly helped me plan my trip as I will doing the whole 150 in one go.
My only negative is that the book does not clearly suggest pubs, cafés, B&Bs, or hotels on route which would be a nice addition, for my trip in particular.
However, it's not quite as good as the Capital Ring book, which includes helpful information about where you can stop for refreshments or the toilet - this doesn't appear in the LL book. Also, some of the descriptions in this book are unnecessarily flowery, and although it does keep us entertained, we really just need to know whether to turn right or left and then how far to walk, rather than being notified of a 'most satisfying vista' or 'vast, high plateau'. Some more focus could maybe have been given to the specifics of the directions.
Having said that, it is on the whole a useful guide that offers interesting information about the places visited, and I wouldn't want to do the walk without it.
