Overview

The travel advice in City Secrets: London comes directly from those who know the city most intimately. The city's writers, artists, editors and critics all have personal stories to tell about the spots they recommend, leading the traveller well off the tourist trail and revealing a city of intimate restaurants, hidden museums and beloved specialist shops, all marked clearly on the book's excellent maps. From the story behind Anthony Gormley's favourite public sculpture, to Penelope Lively's local market and J. G. Ballard's preferred dual carriageway, City Secrets: London makes use of excellent insider knowledge to open up a wealth of unexpected pleasures.
