There are dozens of tucked away 'villages' in London, from Columbia Road to Clarendon Cross. These small, locally-known enclaves give the capital its inimitable character. Featuring thirty of the most unique and vibrant neighbourhoods in London, this is your key to exploring the city in a new way. With atmospheric photographs and an illustrated map for each village, a short text sums up its spirit, history and location, before expertly highlighting the best independent shops, markets, cafes and public spaces to visit.
'It's a quick read but a nice bookk to refer back to and a great introduction to lots of areas you may not have visited before. It is a lovely gift book and a nice book to keep for yourself too.' About.com Guide
