And to really know London you must look beyond the obvious; there are broad vistas and quiet corners, iconic sights and grand boulevards, historic buildings, quaint villages, verdant parks, cobbled alleyways, museums, monuments, statues, markets, theatres, cathedrals and ancient churches. This book unearths and explores a stupendous range of interesting places, some well known, some less well known, some almost unknown, all of which lie within an easy walk of a Tube station. Taking you to 88 stations and 150 different places of interest, viewpoints, walks, unique museums, historic pubs—if you want a day out and you want to do something different then London is your town, the Tube is your means and See London by Tube is your guide.
