Description

‘The perfect guide to the hidden history of London’s streets.’ BBC History Magazine

In Cruickshank’s London , Britain’s favourite architectural historian describes thirteen walks through one of the greatest cities on earth. From the mysterious Anglo-Saxon origins of Hampstead Heath, via Christopher Wren’s magisterial City churches, to the industrial bustle of Victorian Bermondsey, each walk explores a crucial moment in our history - and reveals how it helped forge the modern city. Along the way, Cruickshank peppers the book with vivid photographs, sketches and maps, so you can immediately follow in his footsteps.

Every street in London contains a story. This book invites you to hear them.
