Format: Paperback
Unlike some of the other reviewers of this book, I HAVE done this walk - I don't see how you can review the book without having done it.
That said, I will admit it's a bit out of date (when you use a specific tree as a guidepost, you risk the tree being gone at some point in time, and the opening times at Keats House have changed). So, if you especially want to visit Keats House, Highgate Cemetery or Kenwood, do check the opening days and times before you start so you aren't disappointed.

The basic walk is still doable, and there is a map with all of the highlights marked on it. The background information on the people who lived there, loved there, worked there, or died there, is just enough to pique your interest without being dry and overwhelming.
It's a great stroll through Hampstead, an area the average tourist doesn't know about, so if you want to get off the beaten path, this is perfect. Highgate cemetery is also a fascinating place - you might think a cemetery is an odd place to visit, but it's really worthwhile.
Do plan on spending a whole day doing this walk! The author points out the best options to stop for a drink or meal along the way. I lunched at the Spaniards Inn and it was atmospheric and the food good.

this is not a tourist guide book. it is a lovely little book on the london walking routes with a poetic insight and sentiments.the authors invite us to accompany them through taking a walk around the hemstead heath by sharing their memories with us. while reading it, i soon found myself walking with them, listening to what they knew about legends of london. also, the book contains a city map of london as well as the means of transportation, so that we may get to the hemstead heath without getting lost. if you plan to visit england soon, this book will be your valuable companion.

I have my gripes with Ebert, but like most other people in the world, was sad when he passed away.

This is a neat little book, and it is a pleasure to own and read, and anticipate the walk....have only been to London once and am really hoping to make this happen in the next 8-10 years.

I recommend the book, even if you don't make the walk it is a sweet read.

This perfect London walk combines historical buildings, park settings and views of the city. The book gave great directions and descriptions of what to see and do along the way. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit parts of London that tourists usually don't see.
