This book is indispensable if one is planning a trip to London. Detailed information about sight-seeing helps arrange your itinerary. Great tips on restaurants and inns. Honest assessments of inns include droll humor.

How have I missed Rick Steve's all my life. He writes the travelogue that I would write if I could. You will never forget the stories! Grab a more visual guide since the Steve's guides are mostly black and white, and let Rick Steve's be your tour guide.

I love Rick Steves' guides. They are so comprehensive and clear. They give you everything you could possibly want to know to find your way around. With this book in hand you can step out and explore with confidence, even if you have never been to London before.
