An independent pre-Christmas trip to London (Dec 8-13, 2010) was extremely enhanced through "Rick Steves' London 2011" both through pre-trip planning and on-trip reading. The guidelines for visiting the National Art Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery, and the British Museum were extremely helpful. These museums are so large, that the Steves' focus assists in seeing the best artwork and historical images within a two hour visit to each museum. Rick's suggestion of an Oyster Card for Underground Tube travel was efficient and effective. The Underground and City Maps at the opening of the book were excellent as well as the hand-drawn maps for walking tours of areas of London. "Rick Steves London 2011" actually enhanced the satisfaction of my six-day trip to London.

"Get the most out of every day and every dollar" is quoted on the back of Rick Steves' London 2011 book and this is an accurate summary for this guide. Included are self-guided tours to the more popular tourist sights in London but one also learns where "the locals go for lunch and how to avoid mobs" at the most popular sights including the London Eye and the Changing of the Guard. An important factor for any tourist: how to get around by bus and on the Tube (subway). Good value hotels, restaurants and pubs are described which is important to know especially with the current low-value dollar exchange! I especially appreciated the Appendices sections: Tourist Information; Communicating (how to use mobile phones, call to other countries, useful help numbers,the British accent, Public Transit routes, the Internet, Mail); Resources (other helpful books to borrow/purchase, podcasts, recommended movies); Holidays and Festivals; Conversions and Climate (Interesting tips include: "When counting with fingers, start with your thumb. If you hold up your first finger to request one item, you'll probably get two."); Essential Packing List; Hotel Reservation Form; and the British-Yankee Vocabulary section (I would buy this book just for this section alone! HINT: Never say you are wearing a "fanny pac"! Look THAT one up to save a lot of embarassment!) The book also contains an albeit small but nicely summarized English History and Contemporary Politics section.

I just recently returned from my trip to London. This book proved to be helpful for us - since our stay in London was very quick. We really only had a couple of free days in London, and so we capitalized on the walking tours, and the information that was provided on how to get tickets to the musicals all proved to be very accurate and very helpful.

We are planning a trip to London and this bok has been invaluable. It is full of maps, points of interest and lots of tips such as times attractions are open, cost and best times to visit to avoid long lines.

As with all his books, Rick Steves packs this guide book with all kinds of information, with great tips on how to make the most of your time and how to get the best bargains for your money. It is well written, gives admission prices, guides you through the highlights of museums and attractions when time is limited, and shares many tidbits of information that a good tour guide knows. It is like having your own personal guide along with you, making sure you see the best of everything with the time allowed. I also have his Ireland 2011 book that deserves five stars too. Both are by far the most informative you can buy.

When I went to London, I only needed my passport, money, London map, and this book to explore. With the self-guided tours, I was able to explore London like a true traveler, not a tourist. No need to go on expensive tours. The self-guided tours will save you time and money. I visited Abbey Road, Paul McCartney's current home, Sherlock Holmes Pub, and several other places that tourists don't usually go to. I highly recommend this book for anyone seeking to save money, and get more bang for their buck. Take Rick Steves's advice, and be a temporary local.

The book is helpful and thorough in its descriptions of the sights to see, and I liked the proposed walking tours. But some of the features of the book act strangely on the Kindle. Maps, for example, can be hard to read (there did not seem to be a way to make the text larger on the maps). Also information that was supposed to be set forth in a box on the page in the print edition comes up in strange places and can be hard to read. If I had it to do over, I would purchase the paperback edition.
