Just what the ear doctor recommended.||
Beautifully produced and illustrated with some inspiring photographs in a neat, contemporary layout. Now for the rest of Britian please Siobhan…||
Quiet London has some great suggestions if you want to eat, drink, read or shop quietly.||
If you are stuck in the metropolis and can't get out, this just might preserve your sanity.||
As a DJ I fear silence… All the same, I was fascinated to discover 'Quiet London' this week, a gret new book listing places to find peace and contemplation amid the urban sprawl.||
Full of whispered pleasures, this off-the-beaten-track guide shows you where to sit and stare - Zen gardens, quiet cafes, secret pools, tiny museums, blissful bookshops. Many places listed are also blissfully background music - and mobile - free.||
In the bustling, noisy, traffic-filled capital, with its streets filled with large chain shops one can be forgiven for thinking there is no choice but to push through the hoards and join the queues. But thankfully, this little book says otherwise.

Then there's the promise of finding out that there are other places that you never even knew about, places that you'll like just as much. The choices are not just for the lovers of quiet. Often they are small, out-of-the-way, not particularly well advertised, but places you'll want to return to.
And a third thing - it makes a beautiful gift too. Square, compact, cool, packed with goodies. Something for Londoners, for those like me who love London but are far away, and something for the visitor too.
If you do venture forth & follow author Siobhan Wall's recommendations of tranquil & special places to
visit in London,you are likely to find hidden gems & new favourite haunts.
I think this makes such a good present,too.
