Offering an intimate view of the city, this unique guidebook allows you to explore the capital city's best local neighbourhoods, highlighting the small, locally-known enclaves of independent shops, cafés and public spaces that give the capital its inimitable character. From Columbia Road to Clarendon Cross, there are dozens of tucked away ‘villages’ in London and this compendium of thirty of the most unique and vibrant is your key to exploring the city in a new way. With atmospheric photographs, an illustrated map for each village, and a short text that sums up its spirit, history and location, this charming guide is a jumping off point for exploring the city in a new way.
