Update I wrote this 10 years ago. Now everyone has a smart phone. Does anyone still use a paper A-Z?This is the Londoner's bible. Just about everyone owns the paperback size but it's produced in all sizes from pocket-handkerchief (centre and City only) to atlas-sized. If you go to London this could be your bible too - but before you buy it check that you can read the print. Some of them have very tiny type and they are no better than useless.

Just one word of warning - if you look up a street that has been renamed under its old name in the index, it will give you a map reference, but no indication that the name of the street on the map is the new name!

Ah, the venerable "A to Zed." This was the one guidebook my London host insisted I buy, and it makes a nice memento of the trip, too. I'll take it back with me when I go again--hope they haven't moved the streets around too much!
GPS will NEVER replace this! I had my previous copy for so long it, literally, fell apart. I was quite put out! Only book lovers will understand how I felt. :( :D
The most important accessory ever for someone like me - a Londoner with no sense of geography or direction.
Got a job in London. A to Zed - my Holy Graille.
This book is very perfect! Perfect to those people who visits London for the first time. This is the best guide since it includes details of the ways, trains and many more. You can enjoy walking and riding with confidence that you’re not going to lose your way. I hope that I can read more book about other country.
Although THE definitive map for London, it is at times cluttered - the street identifiers are sometimes hard to find.
