From venerable Westminster Abbey to the cutting-edge exhibitions of the Tate Modern art museum, from the Tower of London's imposing facades to idyllic St. James's Park, London's storied history and myriad charms are irresistible. It's all here: the great historical sites, newer destinations, such as the revolving London Eye, the shopping and business district around East London's Docklands, and the rebuilt Globe Theatre on the trendy South Bank. Special detailed features give comprehensive information on many diverse topics such as London's street markets, Regency architecture, and historic port. Also, the book offers four guided walks through many of the city's lesser-known nooks and crannies.
