Description

One of the most frequent comments I get on the walks is that people never realised there could be so much to see. The performance includes information, history, facts/figures, songs in character and delicious humour. At other times they are hiding in plain view, on the sides or on the rooftops of London's historic buildings and structures.

This lovely green scenic route is one of the best dog walks in London, with vast spaces, wooded trails, and peace and solitude. Packed with interesting details about London’s history, from personal tales of those who wandered the same streets to the social and economic history of the many areas covered. Adam standing in for John was outstanding, witty, engaging, sharing his knowledge of this part of the city brilliantly. It's really well-written, it includes a *huge* number of very interesting-sounding walks, and the photos are a definite enhancement. Find the pedestrian underpass beside Tesco, near Redriff Road and pass the former red swing bridge to reach Greenland Dock.

He’s a geographer and evenhe got lost although he admitted it was his fault but it was great - ish - a few words -fun getting back to the beat and track. The London's Hidden Walks Box set includes 3 volumes, in an attractive slip case, each book includes: 400pp, full-colour, sewn paperback, 12 maps, over 400 photos. This attractive, pocket-sized book contains 20 walks between 1 and 6 miles long, each illustrated with a clear map and stunning photography. I have lived in London for nearly 40 years although I’m from Manchester and having finally retired I bought the books.

I’ve lived in London most of my life but I know there are many places I still haven’t seen so when I learned about this book I was curious whether there are any walks I might find interesting to take in parts of London I haven’t seen before. From pomp and splendour to quiet hidden corners, explore London and discover how 2,000 years of history have shaped this city. In fact, the Secret London resource can be put to any purpose you deem appropriate and, I hope, will really help you to appreciate London for the great and fascinating place it truly is. On my regular walking tours I feature aspects of the Capital's street scene that, if they're noticed at all, often receive little more than a cursory glance, and their full stories are known only to those who, quite often, have just happened upon them by chance.The walks cover all sorts of places from the busy districts of London with towers to pass by like the Shard, Gherkin, etc, to the old London docks, the upmarket district like Mayfair and even areas like Soho and Greenwich too. Amazing how we could be on a busy street, turn up a little lane that’s almost invisible, and find a hidden treasure that the average tourist would never notice. span>

Following any of the 12 walks featured in the book will allow the user to walk in the footsteps of authors and statesmen, murderers and revolutionaries. You’ll meander around and over the rivers and canals, passing posh high streets, historic pubs, manors and mansions. This walk – though it takes several necessary detours off the towpath – is known as one of the most beautiful stretches of waterway in England.

Stop for a coffee before you cross Bedford Hill road and continue to the northern part of the common. Finish at Wimbledon Park Station: The section concludes at Wimbledon Park station on the District Line. when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford. People love walking the streets of London, but there are always more questions than answers after a stroll through the capital. I do like this guide book to these walks though and I’m certainly eager to see things I haven’t spotted in London before, and the instructions seem simple enough, it’s just a shame there isn’t even more information on the area for those of us who maybe might miss something or would like to know even more, especially if we aren’t able to take in all of the sights when trying the walks ourselves.

Unfortunately my walking days are well over but reading these books have given me such lovely memories and even after all these years some things I hadn’t known and the photos were of places and things I would have chosen to illustrate the walks exactly. Can’t recommend them enough whether you’re a first time visitor or this has been your home for years. This book is a wonderful way to explore this sometimes secretive city, great for eitherhardened Londoners or first time visitors.

You'll delve into hidden alleyways and tucked away passageways to gaze in wonder at some of the most unusual pieces of street furniture that, no doubt, made sense to somebody once, but which have us, today, scratching our heads in utter bemusement. From open sunny squares, to winding alleyways and quiet hidden corners, explore London and discover how 2,000 years of colourful history have shaped this city.These books are packed with interesting details about London's history with fascinating stories and more general historical facts. Notice this cool bridge while passing through the woods, named after British GP and MP Alfred Salter.
