Having booked a stay in London, where better to help navigate the streets & hidden pastimes than Philip's London Street Atlas. What a fantastic collection of history & detail. Well worth the read, even if you do not go in person.
Yes, the last reviewer is right, the book's dimensions as given are wrong. 18 x 24 cms is the size of the bookshelf edition. This is the pocket size one and measures 11 x 14 cms. It's the 2012 edition which shows the new Overground train stations. Worth having.
For someone living in Wimbledon - quite a well known area!!!!! This book is literally useless. Bought it from WH Smith (new shop in Wimbledon) this was all they had!!! 1 star for them too No use either if you live in Bromley (most parts) or Kingston.
