London Revealed is a fascinating look at the often hidden stories of the great city’s past and present. Combining Getmapping’s revolutionary high-quality aerial photography with in-depth text, this book shows us a London we’ve never seen before.

London is perhaps the most complex and multi-layered city in the world. Getmapping London: The Photographic Atlas provided a stunning aerial view of the capital city in which London’s cityscape, its parks, major buildings, roads, and even individual houses were clear to see. Now Getmapping London Revealed takes the portrait of London one stage further by stripping away and revealing the many layers which lie under and have contributed to the London we can see today.

This fascinating insight peels back the layers of 21st-century London. The forum, walls and public buildings of Roman London are shown on one spread overlain on the modern view of the capital, on another the reader can see the locations of the Jack the Ripper murders in Whitechapel; the spread of the Victorian cholera epidemics; important sites in the Dickens novels; the theatres of Shakespearian London, or the effects of the Blitz.

With nearly 90 spreads covering a vast breadth of London subject, London Revealed is a unique approach to the history of one of the world’s greatest cities.
