Pocket Precincts London
London is one of the world s grandest cities, a multicultural melting pot with residents from around the globe speaking more than 300 languages, but it also retains those very loveable English traditions that the city’s fabric is as well-steeped in as a good pot of tea. In a compact, light paperback format perfect for slipping into your back pocket, London Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city s most interesting cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences.

Divided into separate precincts, each section lists the best shops, restaurants, bars and sights to see in the area. The precincts the guide covers are Covent Garden, Soho, King s Cross, Shoreditch & Spitalfields, Bermondsey, South Bank, Brixton, Knightsbridge & St James, South Kensington and Notting Hill. From hip Bermondsey with its markets and wine bars to affluent Knightsbridge s grand department stores; from Covent Garden s shopping to the gentrified Kings Cross; whether you ve been to London many times or this is your first visit, with this book in hand you ll discover the personality of each precinct.

As well as detailed reviews and maps for major attractions through to hidden gems, the guide includes a selection of ‘field trips’ encouraging you to venture further afield to Greenwich, Bath, Henley and Brighton.
