I have a number of these DK Eyewitness tourist books & this is as good as the others i've got. Living quite near London i realised i did not know that much about my home city, the book goes into the nitty gritty of information that, as a visiter you would want to know. It shows you how to get about & the best transport to the tourist attractions, where to stay, where to eat & loads more.

Great to have by your side or in the pocket when touring. This is for me the best of the guide books, and it is light weight and fits in the pocket or rucksack

I lived in London for 20 years, but learnt a lot from this beautifully illustrated book. The illustrations really make you want to visit so many new places, and to re-visit others when you find there was more to explore and see. I would recommend it to anyone, whether visitor or resident.

This book and the others in the series (e.g. for Paris and Rome) provide photos, drawings and diagrams of what other books only tell about in print. Beautifully designed and easy to use, this is the one superb resource to read before your trip; you'll know London before you arrive. And during your visit you'll refer to it continually. You'll get a satisfying balance of information about the city's history, culture, arts, neighborhoods, customs, traditions, shopping, events, transporation and more...plus an excellent "survival guide" section...and detailed street and subway maps and recommendations about carefully screened lodging, restaurants and shopping. We don't travel without the Eyewitness Travel Guide. While this book is similar in style and layout to the equally excellent Knopf guides, I find a better balance of information in the Eyewitness Guides.

This is the tour book equivalent of the one volume encylopedia. Covers the topic well, but not much in the way of attitude. However, if you have limited time to see the tourist attractions, this is probably the best on the market. If you want to see the "real" London, get a Rough Guide or the Time Out Guide to London. You'll find out not only what to see, but what's not worth the bother.

My only comment is that because it is a comprehensive guide it is not pocket sized! You'll need a big bag and a strong shoulder for lugging it around London.
I got loads of use out of it when visiting, even better for trip pre-planning at home.

This book was very useful for going around the city and learn, see pictures about buildings where you should but don`t want to pay a fee (for e.house of parlament). Brief descriptions are alright, colour pictures very good but too heavy to carry around all day long.
