I lived and worked around the South Bank area for many years and did not know about the frost fairs etchings under Southwark Bridge, or the public viewing gallery in the OXO Tower.  My guide is coming with me when I visit other parts of the city to make sure I don't miss anything else.
Craig Leslie - Reading

The maps alone are worth looking at. We can't wait to try one of the walks.
Natalie & Geoff - Sydney, Australia

A well researched and clearly written book which brought back many fond memories of exploring London, whilst adding new insights and information in many instances. Great fun!
Rob Bryan - Southampton

It opened my eyes to the history and hidden beauty of London and made me realise just how much you can actually do to enjoy yourself in London without having to spend a great deal either (something I hadn't managed to succeed at a lot til then)! Treat yourself to the book and some healthy, stimulating, educational and cheap London activity.
Chrissi Bucklan-Jones - Clapham, London

I've just got back from a weekend in London and we did two of the walks - West End Shoppers' Paradise and Strolling the South Bank. They were both fantastic, very different but equally inspirational. You've clearly done a lot of research, the detail is fantastic and points out some amazing finds. Can't wait to go back and try out some more!
Emma Lavers - Hungerford

Earlier in the summer my planned day for visiting London was to include the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich followed by a tour of the Cutty Sark, but unfortunately the Cutty Sark is closed for refurbishment until 2011 so with the help of the Walk London book (Walk 15) I was able to ignore the initial grubbiness of the surrounding area and spend quite a bit of time exploring Greenwich Park & Royal Observatory ... a very worthwhile and interesting walk.
Bill Parsons - Bristol

This is a beautifully presented, easy access book with some walks that, even to a born-and-bred Londoner like me, are fascinating. I particularly enjoyed the stunning walk 12, which took in marvellous aspects of Regents Park and, ultimately, one of the finest views over London - from the top of Primrose Hill.
Chris Lawrenson - Surbiton

I have read and have enjoyed ‘walking’ the streets I only visited just a few times during the short time I lived in Hampstead. The drawings are marvellous in their simple richness which satisfies my maze-map loving mind. An easy-to-digest and beautiful book from a complicated and long history of a city.
Andrew Reeves-Hall, Hampshire

Attached are some photos of our day in London yesterday. Many thanks for the advice on the walk, which we carried out with precision. But seriously thanks Gill, REALLY good! (Thanks for the weather too....!)
Feel free to use any photo's for any illustrations or promotions for the book, Naturally though I do have "Copyright" on all the photo's.
