I am glad to see this is still in print. I have an edition from 10 years ago, and I reread a lot of it before tossing it - but if I go to London again, and I would like to, I am grabbing it again. Humphreys provides lots of enjoyable background and color for most of the major locations in central London, and many of the surrounding areas as well. The writing is cultured and smart, but still accessible for the average reader, and there is a good amount of dry English humor as well. This is not so...
Rough Guides have reformatted and updated a good number of their guides including London. I have the newest one and I love the new format. Great coverage of the city, it is divided by neighbourhoods. Also divided by attractions that are north, south, east, and west. I find this edition easier to read, and the addition of more full colour pictures is nice. The best thing however are the maps. There are way more and easy to read and very accurate. You won't need anything else to help you explore t...
If you take one guidebook to London, this is the one.Note: In my opinion the "Rough Guide' series of guide books are the best by a mile.
If your looking for a guide for London then this book is the only one you will ever need. A superb read from start to finnish.
This brilliant guide was my loyal companion as I holidayed alone in London this summer. It was my best friend! I had great expectations of it having used Rough Guides 20 years ago when I travelled around Europe. It didn't disappoint! Now slightly dog-eared I am using it to plan my next trip to the city. As a lover of the historical London I love how I can use this guide to plan my excursions into the past. A bus map (similar to the tube map) would be an added bonus as I'd never thought of using
Очень много информации, качественный большой справочник о лондонских достопримечательностях.
The most useful guidebook of the ones I looked at, both before and during my trip to London; I especially liked the neighborhood-based structure of the guide.
It's almost too much info. Feels more like a textbook.If you have time to skim through the superfluous, then this is fantastic.
It is a good guide and has many ways of demonstrating some of the better places in London to see aside from Touristy spots. I like the bits of information it adds about "battles and times" so there are pieces about the WWI or WWII. Also there is a little piece here and there about the War of The Roses etc. The Timeline is quite handy for readers who havent much knowledge on London.. Its a great overview as a rough guide to London ^-^
This book was my loyal companion when I holidayed alone in London. Having used Rough Guides 20 years ago when travelling around Europe, I had high expectations of it and it didn't let me down. Now a little tatty I am currently using it to plan my next visit.
I'm going there! I like a Rough Guide for this trip in part because they're Brits, so hopefully they know what they're talking about. 'Course I'll be looking through several others as well. I'm going at the end of August, with me Mum.
rehber kitaplarını genelde sevmem; fotoğraflar kalitesiz, gereksiz bilgilerle ve tarih detaylarıyla dolu tanıtım yazıları yavan ve sıkıcı olur. ilk kez bir şehir rehberini sevdim; fotoğrafları sevdim, detaylı ama genel bilgi veren yazıları sevdim ve kitabın derli toplu olmasını da sevdim.
Solid guidebook with good descriptions and context.
Detailed travel guide, sorted by area, which I like.
Przewodnik jak przewodnik.
