Love it or hate it, there’s no escaping the pull that London exerts over inhabitants and visitors alike. Perhaps no other city has been written about quite so much, whether in books exploring its history, speculating about its future or celebrating the multi-stranded, multi-cultural, multi-lingual global experience that it is today. We’ve put together a selection of our favourite books about the city we love to hate, from its architecture to its coffee shops and pubs. Whether you’re exploring it by night or by day, on foot, wheels or by means of its notorious underground network, this selection will show you London as you may never have seen it before.
