"The Most Amazing Places to Visit in London" gives you an insider's view of the capital, from the suburbs to the City. London as a destination for visitors is more popular than ever, but in addition to the obvious sights and attractions, tourists and residents alike are seeking out more unusual places to see. Even if you have lived in London all your life, you will find something to surprise you here, whether it is the tent-like tomb of explorer Sir Richard Burton in an East Sheen churchyard, the street in the City which is technically in Cambridgeshire, the best place to play outdoor table tennis or a restaurant in a former asylum which also housed MI5 and MI6. A special section on the Olympic park will also look at all the amazing new buildings and the park itself, while also looking back at London's Olympic history.

Reviewer: Dr W. P. Palmer
There are a huge number of guides to London, each of which highlights some particular aspect of this great city. In this case the book reviewed is the hardback 2011 edition reprinted with amendments in 2012.
In our last trip to London my wife and I found this book very helpful. It is a little on the large size for easy transportation, but the picture are excellent and do allow the visitor to make a reasoned choice. My own interest is in science and I visited Michael Faraday’s laboratory at the Royal Institution and the Alexander Fleming Laboratory at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington. Interestingly the Alexander Fleming Laboratory was not included in the book, so don’t expect everything to be there! Nonetheless, we found it to be a useful guide to our week in London.
