Synopsis

When you think of London, what do you picture? Westminster Abbey? The electric lights of Piccadilly Circus? The grandeur of Buckingham Palace? Or do you see busy shopping areas, beautiful bridges and buzzing bars and restaurants? Or is it the parks, the boats on the River Thames and the bustling train stations that spring to mind? With London there are just so many intriguing sides to the city.

In 200 outstanding images, London celebrates this remarkable capital city, from its world-famous landmarks to cobbled alleyways, from the dizzy heights of The Shard and The Gherkin down to its railway stations and deeper still to the city's jam-packed underground.

Ranging from both classic and modern landmarks, this book covers everything from parks to transportation. From tennis at Wimbledon to shopping at Harrods and afternoon tea at Claridge's, Alastair Horne explores a plethora of aspects to this sprawling metropolis.

Presented in a handy pocket-sized landscape format and with captions revealing many fascinating but little-known facts about the history and culture of this diverse city, London is a stunning collection of images of one of the world's most iconic cities.
