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, cafés and public spaces to visit.

Index

'It's a quick read but a nice book 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.'

'You'll never want to go to Oxford Street again.'

‘An homage to unsung areas, among them the bohemian and the works in progress, and an inspiring reference book for the jaded tourist or native.’
