From the pomp of Westminster to the pop-ups of Dalston, London is Europe's most diverse city in every sense. Updated by local Londoners, the Pocket Rough Guide London covers both the headline sights and the lesser-known gems, with colour photography throughout and a handy pull-out map in the back. The Best of section picks out Rough Guides' highlights of London, from the most opulent royal sights to our favourite parks, plus our top five museums and the best places to go with kids. Divided by area for easy navigation, and written in Rough Guides' trademark honest and informative style, the Places section brings London's enduringly individual neighbourhoods to life, with all of the best restaurants, pubs, cafés, shops and nightclubs listed. Whether you're on a city break, visiting for a longer stay or even if you've lived here for decades, this fully updated Pocket Rough Guide London packs this historic, bewilderingly large but wonderfully addictive city into your pocket.
