9780002111256: The Companion Guide to London (Companion Guides)

It is surely remarkable to write of a guidebook that it is difficult to put down. But it is certainly true of this one. ECONOMIST Calls our attention to everything beautiful, historic or curious left in the heart of London. SUNDAY TIMES David Piper's classic book is the most elegant, lyrical and stimulating of all guides to London, written with undisguised enthusiasm, intimacy and affection. It traverses London from Regent's Park to Lambeth, from the Tower of London to Kensington, with excursions on the river and forays to outlying points of interest, each chapter covering an area which can be comfortably walked in a day. The author draws out the individual character of each district through history, literature, art and architecture and his own informed and entertaining comments. This is an essential guide for those who really want to understand how London has developed; it has been thoroughly revised and updated for this new edition. DAVID PIPER was an art historian, director of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, from 1973-1985, and before that director of the National Portrait Gallery, London; FIONNUALA JERVIS, who revised the guide, has edited and contributed to numerous historical and art historical publications, and in the course of this revision has walked every step of the way in David Piper's footprints from her home in Kensington.

Product Description:

This guide to London has been extensively revised to cover all changes in the capital since 1987. The area covered is the section between the Tower, Kensington and Chelsea, Primrose Hill and the South Bank, with excursions up and down the river. Each chapter has a clear map and follows a suggested walk, with both the splendours and the oddities of the town, parks, palaces and pubs.
