WALK LONDON is a Pitkin Guide, by Gill Knappett, of fifteen themed walks highlighting the best that London has to offer - for just £6.
Main features include:
- Famous must-see icons, plus those less well-known and out of the ordinary
- Historic and modern-day sites
- Lots of fascinating facts and quirky titbits
- 15 unique illustrated maps
- Easy-to-follow routes, from 1 to 5½ miles (1.5 to 9 kilometres)
- Locator map showing start and end points at Underground stations
- Colour illustrations and photographs
- Contact information for visitor attractions
Each of the themed walks has been researched, walked and written by Gill Knappett. How long they take depends on how long you’ve got and how many of the attractions you want to spend time at. Entry to many visitor sites is absolutely free, and contact details are given in the Visitor Information section of the book.
Each walk starts and ends at an Underground or railway station but if you only have time to do part of a walk it is usually possible to finish at a different station as shown on the maps.
The illustrations in the book and the walk maps are by illustrator/cartographer Michael Hill of Maps Illustrated (www.mapsillustrated.com) and give the book a unique flavour. Following the routes shown on the maps and the directions given in the text mean it is impossible to get lost!
Love London? Live it. Walk it.
