I bought this on a whim as I had a few days to waste and didnt want to do the 'usual' touristy things again. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to do something a bit different at their own pace. Its full of great info on places you would normally just walk by without a second thought,its well written and the watering holes mentioned that I tried were just great. Oh and it fits in your pocket... if you like walking and want to do something a bit different buy it you'll love it :) --Baldrecordman

This book would be an excellent companion for anyone wanting to explore London by foot, either alone, or in a group. It would particularly suit those who enjoy learning a lot about what they are seeing. The hardest thing would be deciding which one of the 25 walks to pick first! The amount of information for each walk could be too much for some people as it does go into quite a lot of detail, but if that's the case, you could just follow the map at the start of each walk, and then refer to any points of interest in the text as and when you wanted to - they are numbered on the map, so you can easily find them within the text.
A definite recommendation for anyone wanting to explore London in a different, and very educational, way!
London's Secret Walks gives 25 walks with a chapter per walk, and each can be tackled in half a day or less (or more if you visit many of the suggested hostelries en route). The first of these, Roman Britain, shows you what survives of London’s earliest days, but after that the chapter titles such as Bloomsbury, Notting Hill, St James, and Soho and Fitzrovia speak for themselves. I thought I knew my London: well, I didn’t – but I do now.
Oh and it fits in your pocket... if you like walking and want to do something a bit different buy it you'll love it :)
