London Architecture has been a real revelation, with lots of buildings and architectural background to surprise even an old architecture buff. I particularly like that it deals with the capital's architecture in a chronological way and has a table at the back so you can make sense of the main schools of architecture. There are all the expected buildings included in the guide from St Pauls to the Gherkin, but also lots of surprises like the fabulous Leighton House and the Danish Embassy. The book is nicely made with lots of colour pics, clear maps and architectural walks at the back. A definite must for those interested in exploring the great architecture of London!

With just two and a half days to try and impress my future in-laws on a short trip from their native US, this book was a great help. I guessed they would expect me to know more about London that actually did so it was essential for me to do some research beforehand.

The book tells the story of the building of London from the very earliest times to the present with examples of buildings to view and visit from each of the periods. There are nerdly little biogs of some leading architects , which also proved useful and interesting as well as a series of walks to follow where the best of London's buildings can be seen.

The only small gripe I have with the book is the illustrations. There really are not enough and what are there are trying to be a bit on the 'arty' side. The book deserves better so I am only giving four stars rather than five but at the same time I can highly recommend it.

Just the right balance of text to images (about 50:50)|. It is well set out, organised into historical chunks, e.g. Victorian London, and then an excellent section on walks, with maps and what buildings you will see. Also a bit on eating, drinking and shopping. The only reason I gave it 4 stars not 5 was because it didn't have the most recent buildings in (The Willis building, The Cheesegrater etc.) which was one of the reasons I bought the book.

Another great guide from Metro Publications. Covering everything from Wren's city churches to Robert Adam mansions to art deco department stores in a clear time line, there is exactly enough interesting fact and intelligent detail here to please both the architectural enthusiast and connoisseur. With information on the German Gymnasium in Kings Cross and Zaha Hadid's Aquatics Centre this book makes a perfect gift in time for the Olympics.

This book works well in guiding the tourist to see the interesting buildings. The text contains enough of information. However, as a stand alone enjoyment this one is seriously lacking because of the dull photographs. They may be artistic or have some other values, but they fail in delivering a good general view of the buildings.

Liked the fresh, informative approach to architecture. I now know 100% more about the buildings I pass by every day and recommend this little book to everyone who lives in or visits the Capital.
