Overview

Geographical Excursions in London explores the growth and development of London, as a World City, capital of Britain and large metropolitan area, through its major functions, institutions, peoples and internal spatial structures. It is the first time in over thirty years that these objectives have been realized by a comprehensive series of field excursions in different parts of London. Each excursion focuses on the evolution of that area, the forces responsible for change and the various problems and planning issues faced by the area today. The excursions involve walking tours of the central area, along with train and bus travel and shorter walks in suburban areas. The eight excursions set out are: the City of London; the City of Westminster; Regent's Park and the West End; Bloomsbury-St. Pancras; the East End; London's Docklands; 'Metroland'; and Hampstead. The illustrated text may be conveniently used in the field by students in courses, or by any visitor who wants a better understanding of how the urban landscape of London evolved.

Editorial Reviews

Peter Hall
An invaluable guide to the geography of London, which fills a yawning gap in the geographical literature. Hugh Gayler is to be congratulated on stepping in where British geographers have failed to tread.
Emery Jones
Very useful and comprehensive cover. Sets the field work in its historical context...As a general guide, very good.
