The Cadogan Book of Historic London Walks (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


From its mythic origins to the present day, London is a historic city full of undiscovered wonder and exploration. But there is only one real way of uncovering the hidden pockets of this extraordinary city - on foot. London's historical past reveals itself uniquely to the walker like no other. The Cadogan Book of Historic London Walks traces the stories of the men and women who created, built and lived in the city through the centuries, from Kings and Queens and architects of great buildings and gardens, to shopkeepers, writers and artists. Each of the 12 walks is designed and written to give the reader a fascinating historical background to the city, together with quirky nuggets of information and clear, straightforward directions. There are recommendations on the best - and most unusual - cafes and pubs as well as portraits of dozens of famous Londoners, historical events and little known facts: which men's hairdresser's contains the remains of the Roman Basilica in its basement? What was Stalin's favourite hotel?

Along the way, the walker will discover the hidden rivers of the City, the original location of Little Britain, the forgotten story of the London Stone, the place where William Blake and Daniel Defoe are buried and the famous London Monument.
