Description

London Adventure Walks for Families offers 25 carefully devised, imaginative explorations of the city from its center to its suburbs, all accessible by public transport and specifically designed to appeal to the mindset of children. These intriguing explorations of the historic (Tudor London/Fire of London/Florence Nightingale), literary (Coram Boy, Dickens, Shakespeare, 101 Dalmatians, Paddington Bear) and famous sights of the capital draw children in and keep them actively involved and enthralled. For the parents, there is all the add-on information that families need, such as facilities, opening times, shops, food, transport, places for a sit-down, places for a run-around, I-spy lists, and other game ideas. Highly creative in its content and design, the format tempts children and adults as well as London natives and tourists alike. Packed with tantalizing facts and unusual places, the book draws on the urban culture as much as the countryside within the city, revealing secret facts, hidden places, and little explored treasures of London.

The author

Becky Jones is a documentary film maker specialising in science, history and arts programmes at the BBC and Chanel 4. The skills of fact finding, research and travelling across the globe have been honed and brought closer to home with the series of guide books Adventure Walks for Families books she has created with journalist colleague Clare Lewis. The books inspire children and families to get out and about, exploring the stories and games of an old fashioned outdoors childhood through a good tramp in the countryside. Born and bred as Londoners, and following the success of Adventure Walks for Families, Becky and Clare have since produced London Adventure Walks, The Adventurer's Notebook and The Bumper Book of London.
