This book sets a new standard. It tell you a little of history of the subject, and breaks it down by transportation, culinary adventures, and I particularly the part of understanding London - Now and then.
I think this travel guide should not be called a guide, because it is much more than that. It gives you reasons to go and see certain sights, and when not to go.
You can tell the author really feels for London, and he starts off by wishing the traveler `an amazing time in London`. I don’t recall seeing such genuineness in any guide before. I liked the way he is beside you in considering such things as where to eat, and why go `there`.
Being a history buff, I appreciate the way he ties history in the descriptions of just about everything, and actually goes into some depth as a basis for going.
This guy knows his stuff, and makes you want to put London at the top of your bucket list.
It is a very, very good introduction to London. When I go, this will certainly be with me.
Specific neighborhoods are described, with a list of attractions in each neighborhood. Small photographs of some of the attractions are included, and this is helpful to give a feeling for the venue. One little map is included to give a big picture view of how the airports and the rail network are interconnected. A good bargain is the all-day unlimited travel on London’s public transportation for about 12 pounds.
A real treat is the daily musical concerts during the summer and the fall at the Royal Albert Hall. There is some discussion of costs, such as the fact that the cover charges at the clubs is usually cheaper before 10 pm. Also, if you can schedule your visit in the Fall, the air fares and hotel charges will probably be lower.
The book tells us that the emergency phone numbers in the UK are 999 and 112. But it doesn’t tell why there are two, or the difference between them. I think it would have been helpful to explain that 999 was the original emergency number, and 112 was added later as part of the European Union development. In Great Britain they both connect you to the same service, and you can call either number.
The most useful information I got was the city was built in a circular pattern with a diameter of
40 miles. Hard to tell on a 3-inch map. That said, tourist picks were mentioned but author neglects to let you
know distances from 1 site to next or how far from tube stops an attraction might be. He often mentions places which you should visit but doesn't really tell you why. Besides the lack of useful information, the poor grammar and diction make for difficult reading.
