From the author: "The best thing about this book is that I'm a local, and I've been to all of these attractions myself. And I don't just regurgitate the same old spiel that you find in 95% of guidebooks. It's not the kind of guide where I just tell you the basics, and leave it at that. I'll take you inside each location and share my experiences with you. Maybe I enjoyed them, and maybe I didn't… I'll give you an honest opinion, alongside exact information about opening times and prices. If you're new to London then I'll explain how to ride the buses, taxis and trains, and if you enjoy walking then I've created some self-guided walks (bonus chapter in ebook only), plus two weeks-worth of example itineraries. I've also included some Top 10 lists, a chapter full of popular day trips, and a review of every hotel I've ever stayed at, from the Premier Inn to The Ritz. It's a good little travel companion to keep in your pocket."
