Description - art/shop/eat London by Delia Gray-Durant
Blue Guides: Complete Cultural Guides This eminently portable guide offers readers fresh suggestions and insights into London's major districts, including the Tate Modern and the South Bank, St Paul's and the City, the British Museum and the West End, Buckingham Palace and Westminster, and the Victoria and Albert Museum and Kensington. Full colour with maps, photographs, and floor plans. About the series: The art/shop/eat pocket guides combine a great look with the thoroughness of research expected from a Blue Guides publication, making them the perfect choice for the weekend or short break tourist. This intelligently planned series divides each city up into 4-5 districts centred on a key sight and gives ideas for a perfect day in that part of town: the main sights and one or two quirkier ones too, the best places to eat or have a coffee, and some original shopping ideas, presented in an uncluttered and navigable format that respects the reader's intelligence. A good 50% of the book is dedicated to the art and history of the place, distinguishing these useable little books from many guides which are little more than practical information listings.
About Blue Guides: Blue Guides have been published continuously since 1918 and have always represented the best-researched, best-presented and most comprehensive cultural guide books in the English language. Other Art/shop/eat titles include: Barcelona, Paris, Berlin, San Francisco, Madrid and Rome "Often plagiarised by other guide writers, Blue Guides have always been a gold standard for accuracy and depth" Daily Telegraph "Guide books in the grand tradition of thoroughness and objectivity" Georgia Review
