About The Book

Twenty different topics are tackled in quick, entertaining bites, including the tradition of afternoon tea (and the best places to enjoy it); artists with a London fixation (Hogarth and Monet among them); royal parks (and the favorites among kings); and pubs from medieval to modern times (with a listing of the best). Evocative, entertaining text married with gorgeous images and nuts-and-bolts sidebars on authentic experiences reveals the best of this fabulous city.
