Synopsis

Where can Londoners and visitors find quiet places to meet and talk? London is an exciting place to be, but not everyone wants to be in a noisy environment listening to loud music. Perhaps they want to be somewhere where they can read a book, or sit and linger for a while. Many visitors to the capital long to discover places off the beaten track - find a delightful garden to sit in or a tree-lined walk by a river. Busy Londoners are often looking for somewhere to go which is an alternative to lively venues; a place where things are understated rather than grabbing their attention...Quiet London is a guide to quiet places to meet, drink, eat, swim, rest, shop, sleep or read. It includes interesting, attractive places where people don't have to strain to hear each other speak. There are short descriptions for each venue, alongside travel and contact details and simple but atmospheric photographs in colour and black and white.
