"City Secrets guides are unlike any others on the market…in this case, a formidable cross section of London’s intelligentsia…share their inside information on the parts of London they know best, the sorts of places that they might reveal to visiting friends, the keys that might unlock some of the city’s meaning." —The Sunday Times (London)
