Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Marsha completed her first book at age 9. 'Disasters in Florida' was a non-fiction account of her family's trip to Florida, fraught with airplane delays and broken car locks. Remarkably, despite the action-packed narrative, the book remains unpublished.

Undeterred, Marsha trained to be a journalist and worked for several years in journalism and PR. Her desire to travel propelled her from her native Canada to Poland and then on to England, where she has lived and worked for the past five years. Her first book, 24 HOURS LONDON (Prospera Publishing 2009), was inspired by her love for her adopted city. 24 HOURS PARIS was published in May 2010, with 24 HOURS SYDNEY to be released soon.

Marsha Moore has written a great travel guide for London, England.
Luanne Ollivier
Not only is each segment divided by an hour of the day so you really could do something every moment of every day, but the ideas are so fresh and different!
India Drummond
I'm going through this book and jotting down all the neat stuff to do all over London, much of which is free!

I have quite a few travel books for various cities I've visited, but this one is so different from the rest. Not only is each segment divided by an hour of the day so you really could do something every moment of every day, but the ideas are so fresh and different! I want to pack my bags for London today.

Even a native Londoner would enjoy this sampling of out-of-the-way and interesting things to do.

Sometimes I sit and dream of places I'd like to visit. I'm not sure when it will every happen, but I enjoy reading travel books and learning about wishful destinations. England is one of those places for me.

Marsha Moore has written a great travel guide for London, England. But with a twist - it's a 24 hour guide. Yep - 24 Hours London. Arrived with jet lag, body clock off? Flip the book open to the appropriate hour and check out what's going on at 5 am. (Food markets open up and the double decker starts to run)

Each entry - and there are numerous entries for each hour - lists the hours, if its a food establishment and/or family friendly and the fee, if any. There's a descriptor of each attraction as well. Also listed is what 'tube' line to take to any stop. Many of the attractions listed are free. And they cover the gamut. Food, history, sight seeing, shopping, the arts, clubs and lots more. Being an armchair traveller at this point, I found myself looking up the websites that Marsha has also listed with each entry.

So many unique stops caught my eye. Portobello Road Market, Books for Cooks - a combination book store/demonstration kitchen/cafe, a breakfast cafe in the crypt beneath an old church, a library celebrating the lives of women in Britain, a sewing machine museum with 600+ on exhibit, a naked disco!, shopping, fishing, balloon rides, Jack the Ripper walks, a Monopoly pub crawl (visit a pub on every street of the game board) and a whole lot more. One item I found particularly interesting was the public urinals that are raised to the sidewalk surface at 7 pm and lowered at 6 am!

Well researched and laid out and chock full of sites. I'll be reading 24 Hours Paris when it comes out.

Someday...

Format: Paperback
I won this autographed book in a contest sponsored by the author on her blog ([...]). When I received it, I was impressed with the quote on the front cover by Boris Johnson, Mayor of London.

The size and weight of this book make it easy to carry with you as you embark on a series of adventures within London. There is so much to see and do and Marsha Moore lists a wide variety of places to visit at any time of the day or night; several of them suitable for families and those on tight budgets.

Website information is provided as are times places and venues may be open along with warnings of time changes. "24 Hours London" is well organized and is a necessary companion to guide you along the streets of London.
