About the Book

Fill in and update this journal with all of your favourite London venues and discoveries, and find inspiration for places to go and things to do in the greatest city in the world.

Each double-page spread covers a theme, from great hilltop views and secret gardens to romantic ruins and graves and graveyards, and from unspoilt streets to museums of the unexpected.

London expert David Long guides you with his own suggestions, leaving you space to note your own finds or simply jot down your thoughts, and Kate Forrester provides beautiful decorative illustrations on every page.

The perfect companion for the London visitor, resident or first-timer, combining both practical advice on where to start looking and the incentive to go on discovering the city for yourself. You'll be sure to fall in love with London for the first time … or all over again.

About the Author

Well received by reviewers and readers alike, David Long has been a writer since leaving a first-class university with a second-class degree in the 1980s. He is fascinated by those strange, semi-hidden corners of England most of us cease to notice because we walk by them so often. Whilst a columnist for the Sunday People he created a popular weekly cartoon strip which appeared in the Times, and continues to write for a wide diversity of newspapers and magazines both in Britain and abroad. Many of his most popular and best-reviewed books reflect his longstanding interest in the less well-known aspects of Britain, its architecture and eccentric inhabitants – subjects, he says, which simply never run dry. He has written Bizarre England and Lost Britain for Michael O’Mara Books.
