The book is about 500 pages and printed on thin, high quality paper.

In each section there is additional information and in some cases side bars with interesting highlights about a specific place/topic.

So the last Lonely Planet I read I was none too happy about because it was a pocket guide to San Francisco and was pretty much indistinguishable from the competition.

This, dear reader, is a different proposition all together. The coverage is good, the selected out of the way, haunts, sights and curios are very interesting, I liked the map too. In fact I was so taken by the book that I read it from cover to cover even the bits that are irrelevant to me, the bars and nightclubs (now that I am in my dotage, it is hard to find any young people who even know who the Beatles are!. Just jesting!)

Which brings me to my first case for inclusion into the next edition. Beatles London. There are several mentions of Jimi Hendrix in the text but little of the Fab Four or Five if you include Mal Evans etc. The Beatles hailed from Liverpool but they soon were drawn to London and there are several places that people may want to see such as the former Apple building in Saville Row, the former Apple Boutique with it's Blue Plaque but alas no artwork and the house of John and Yoko, not to mention the Abbey Road zebra crossing and EMI studios etc. I think these are suitable for a Lonely Planet Guide and a little more enduring than some of the restaurants.

I was a little miffed and mystified by the lack of references to any of the parts of London University and the intimate connections between the institutions and the development of the cities. Whereas Eton may have connections with Prime Ministers, there is a wealth of history in the London School of Economics to name just one.

Minor quibbles would be an expansion of the destinations outside of London.

As a relatively frequent visitor to London, I found this to be a very helpful book - lots of information presented well in a well relatively compact, sturdy book. The book is about 500 pages and printed on thin, high quality paper. I hate bulky or heavy travel books and this one is about right and could be easily carried about as an on-foot reference.

The book is very good in terms of what it covers, with lots of illustrations and maps, including a tearout city map that otherwise unfolds in the back of the book. The book gives all of essential information you need, including transportation, sights and things to do (mostly organized around neighborhoods), and suggested itineraries (kids included). The book also includes a nice short history of the city, along with a few day trips. One thing I very liked about the book is that it gave good contact info for most places (restaurants too) that included hours of operation and websites. As a very small ding, it had a fair amount of information of restaurants, not a bad thing but I would rather have pages devoted to sightseeing and find restaurants on my own or on a web site associated with the book. Not a big thing though, in that the book is pretty compact.

An excellent book - Highly recommended!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The world of travel guides is dominated by two giants: classic, illustrated in color, very detailed Baedeker (since 1839), and more exclusive, profusely illustrated in color, detailed Eyewitness Travel Guides. The new improved Lonely Planet is almost like Baedeker, but Baedeker is better published and handier, has clearer layout and better maps, and its plastic wallet cover holds the guide and map protected in all weather.

The content of approx. 70 pages of the book is shown by the Amazon.com's "LOOK INSIDE!" function. What cannot be seen is that the LP basic series including this ISBN 1742208738 London has covers laminated only outside, its text is detailed comparably to the Eyewitness, however not as profusely illustrated and mostly only in 4 colors: black, blue, red, and beige, except a few dozens of pages with photos in full color printed on low quality paper.

Though the LP Discover series is in full color, it is less detailed than this improved LP basic series, has fewer illustrations than, and is not as good as, Eyewitness, which is 1 inch longer and thus less handy, but has the excellent flexible vinyl bindings, greater number of details, superior layout, graphics, clarity, and - in general - the quality of being a souvenir\memento.

This book contains solid advice on what to see, eat, and do in London. I feel that there aren't as many photos as in other guide books (particularly Lonely Planet's Discover series, and National Geographic guide books), but they are in full color and there are many maps to help you, with the added benefit of suggested itineraries and detours worth taking. There's also a bigger pull-out map included.

I really appreciated the information provided that a non-local wouldn't know, such as etiquette, money-exchange services, and a general "getting started" section. I also loved reading about the history and culture.

What I didn't particularly like was the thinness of the pages - they feel just like phone book pages and get crinkled easily. I also would prefer more photos. As far as all the information provided on restaurants and hotels, I wonder if Lonely Planet couldn't put QR codes there instead that direct you to a webpage with all the information, that you can scan with your phone (and added bonus - the page would always be up-to-date regardless of the age of the travel guide book!)? This way the book wouldn't feel so cluttered with that sort of information.
