London Villages Reviews


`An homage to unsung areas, among them the bohemian and the works in progress, and an inspiring reference book for the jaded tourist or native.'


'You'll never want to go to Oxford Street again.'


'It's a quick read but a nice book to refer back to and a great introduction to lots of areas you may not have visited before. It is a lovely gift book and a nice book to keep for yourself too.'
