London Walks"Time Out" London Walks: 30 Walks by London Writers: Vol 1 ("Time Out" Guides) Time Out London Walks features 30 walks from London writers, each revealing a personal insight into their chosen corner of the capital. From ancient woodland to modern skyscrapers, motorway underpasses to stately homes, most parts of the city are subject to the scrutiny of the writers. The end result is a book that can be read with pleasure at home, as a collection of writing about London, and above all used as a thought-provoking guide to a series of walks through the capital.

The Rough Guide to Walks in LondonThe Rough Guide to Walks in London and South East England This guide uncovers a variety of walks both in and accessible from the capital. The city walks explore areas of London's rivers, canals and woodland, from Richmond to Camden. Outside of London there are accounts of both the established walks such as the Ridgeway and original routes taking readers to lesser-known areas of interest. All the routes include colourful background on places of interest along the way and reviews of the best country pubs in the area. Each route also includes a detailed map, complete with contour lines and a rating from easy to strenuous.

Exploring the East End Of LondonExploring the East End (Walks Through History S.) London Walks. The routes chosen for these Walks Through History reveal the rich, varied character of one of the most distinctive parts of London - the East End. They take the walker through hundreds of years of the East End's dense and surprising history, from the now-distant days when the area was considered an idyllic retreat, through the boom of the nineteenth century, the Blitz and postwar decline, to the present resurrection of Docklands as London's new financial centre. The armchair traveller will get as much enjoyment from these guided tours as the intrepid walker who explores the highways and byways of backstreet East London.
