Overview

Insight City Guide London is your comprehensive guidebook to one of the world’s most-visited cities. Full-color photos and maps throughout combine with authoritative text to inspire you to explore this vibrant city.
Our “Best Of London” section highlights top attractions and activities, while features focus a wide variety of subjects, from the people themselves to West End theaters. The Places chapters cover central London, from Westminster, the focus of government and monarchy, to Holborn, once the haunt of Samuel Johnson and Charles Dickens. Evocative accounts of Covent Garden, the entertainment area of Soho, and the world-class museums of Kensington combine with lively descriptions of London’s ancient “villages”, long ago swallowed by the city’s expansion but still distinctive. A further chapter suggests day trips to historic towns such as Windsor and Brighton.
The travel tips cover all the practical information you’ll need, such as transportation and currency, as well as selective listings suggesting the best places to stay and eat.
