Overview

Children's London contains cover 1,000 entries, and covers everything of interest to children in and around London. Venues have been thoroughly investigated by author, Lydia Conway, accompanied by children of various ages from babies to pre-teens. Her amazingly detailed knowledge enables you to keep the kids entertained while reducing wear and tear on your nerves to a minimum. And when they eventually wind down, there's advice on where to find such essentials as child-friendly restaurants, all-under-one-roof shops, loos and even additive-free ice creams. Each entry is accompanied by full details of opening hours, prices and nearest public transport.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
The seemingly limitless audience for travel guides will welcome the new "Evening Standard" series, which is introduced with these two specialty titles on London. Both are packed with information, reasonably priced, and, in the case of Children's London, will prove useful for travelers of any age. Describing well over 700 establishments scattered throughout greater London, The Pub and Bar Guide's entries include the range of draught beers offered, the hours food and drink are served, and the nearest Underground station. Some of the short entries read like chatty history lessons, while others focus on the atmosphere, clientele, food, and amenities. Unfortunately, pubs are listed alphabetically instead of geographically, and the maps are overcrowded with pub names yet show only main streets and no Underground stops. Children's London, on the other hand, is arranged thematically: museums, theme parks, animal attractions, shopping, eating out, and more. Many of the attractions are already familiar from other travel guides, but Conway offers advice on the appropriateness of each for children. Information on baby carriage access, diaper-changing and breast-feeding facilities, and travel directions are also included. Originally published in England in 1998, these two U.S. editions, although slightly outdated, offer much useful information and will be popular in any travel collection.--Linda M.
