London is such an awesome city with sooo so much to see, and choosing what you want to do and how to spend your (usually) very limited time there can be quite a challenge.The Top 10 London travel guide is incredibly handy. I'm not exactly sure how many times I've used it already, but I've had it for years, and it never disappointed me. For one, it's clearly structured. There are basically three parts. In the first part, the top attractions are introduced (among the top 10, there's the British Mu...
You might think that TOP 10 refers to the Top 10 places YOU MUST VISIT when in wonderful London. But it's actually better and more useful than that. The book is actually about the Top 10 things to see when at more-than-10 nifty places in London.There's the Top 10 things at the British Museum, National Gallery, Tate Museum, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's, Westminster, and more.And beyond that there are lists of Top 10 for famous residences, pubs, shopping, restaurants, and more.For restaurants, fo...
DK Eyewitness Travel Guides are much more than a simple guide. While they do offer sections geared to food and lodging, the selections listed are cursory at best and the traveler can do as well or better by looking on-line to hotel or lodging sites. As for restaurants, I've always felt it was best to discover restaurants when you're in a place from word-of-mouth recommendations.No, what the Travel Guides do better than any other guides is to tell you what to see, and WHY you want to see it. The
I have absolutely no idea how to rate a travel guide, but this reminds me of London with its chilliness, lovely accents, and happiness, so it was great (and it managed to keep me interested enough to read the whole thing, which is a first when it comes to guide books—although that may have happened because of my excitement for the trip and not the guide itself). First it suggests the top places to visit in general, and then goes on to the best of each neighborhood, which I thought was helpful. A...
I read this book before each of my trips to London. I took it on my first trip but I bought an updated DK Eyewitness travel book for my second trip. I enjoy the DK series & their layout. Great background information, tips, and advice.
3 ½ stars
Great, concise guide if you're looking for something short and portable. Includes a useful, laminated pocket map that you can mark on and then erase.
A very informative read with great suggestions for places to visit, shop and dine. What was most handy came in the tips for travelers concerning travel, lodging and getting around. I would recommend this for anyone planning a trip to London. There is so much to know ahead of time, that this book should be a staple in planning the perfect trip.
Decent overview of London. London is such a big city with so much history and so much activity, it is difficult to prepare a proper guide. Top 10 does an adequate job of selecting some of the more prominent options. Good as a complement to other research for things to do in London, but perhaps should not be your only guide.
This one was okay. I will definitely refer to the full version London guide from the same publisher than using this as a shortcut. I also read Top 10 Vienna/New York/Paris and they were much better written. I think a travel guide without a unique voice is just a...map.
Deze editie bevatte, voor mijn gevoel, wat minder informatie over de wijken dan ik gewend ben van Capitool. Afgezien van dit puntje vond ik dit toch een hele goede reisgids! Zeer compleet en overzichtelijk. Leuk om te lezen als voorpret.
The Eyewitness Travel Top 10 Guides have very helpful maps and useful pictures. However, the content was just OK. These mini-guides are meant to just give you brief concise information in priorities, but I didn't think this guides information and priorities were as helpful.
اطلعت على جزء من الكتاب خلال سفرة عمل الى بريطانياالكتاب صغير الحجم مما يسهل حمله ويحتوي على خرائظ كثيرةولكن الحقيقة لم اعد اشعر بضرورة حمل الكتب خلال السفر فكل المعلومات متاحة على الانترنت
Guter, informativer Reiseführer für kleines Geld, der mir genau die Informationen geliefert hat, die ich haben wollte! Ich freue mich schon sehr auf meinen Tag in London!!
I read and skimmed this book. It was okay. Its lists were nice and concise and they had a ton for all sorts of interests.
I love the Top Ten travel guides - helpful maps, good pointers, easy to carry around.
Very useful while we stayed in London!
Nice try. A top 10 list of many things. What makes the list? What classifies a place as a 5th or a 7th? Magic. At least tripadvisor is free with an adblocker.
Great travel guide for London. Was super informative and will use it for my eventual trip.
Good quick and dirty guide to London. I've used lots of the top 10 guides when I didn't have much time in a City...
Super helpful. Lays everything out really well, but I am still glad I supplemented my research with other sources.
OK pocket guide with pull out map and tube schematic. Probably most useful for someone spending many days focused on the highlights in the city.
These short and chock-full guides are pocked sized and quite handy, with pull-out maps. I'm quite excited for my upcoming trip, and I'll definitely use this one to help plan various days.
The book is fine, pictures are lovely. The context, though, is that the family is spending a weekend in London, and that is AMAZEBALLS - oops, sorry: amazebollocks.
Loads of information if you're thinking of traveling to London. Hoping to get there in 2015!
