I’ve been reading a lot of tour books covering London and also covering England, Scotland and Wales.

This is by far the best of all the guidebooks I’ve read about London. The Lonely Planet books are great. Their London one seems particularly helpful.

One thing I learned from this book is that more planning than I’d anticipated is advisable. It’s not a book I’d want to carry around on a daily basis (they do have a pocket guide I’ll look for at the library) but I would bring the paperback on a UK trip. This would be one worth buying if I am ever able to go to London. It would be a worthwhile investment, making a trip there more satisfying. There is a Kindle edition but I think I’d rather have the paperback because a phone screen is too small for me to see all the details, especially the maps. I would use a phone to access various websites and online maps & directions while out and about.

I understand why there is a long queue at the library. I will be borrowing it again and buying a copy if I have a firm intention to visit.

Highly recommended for first time travelers to London and all London visitors and some residents.

Does anybody know how often Lonely Planet publishes their London guides/guides? I’ll have to check if a new edition might be available before I make any plans to travel there.

    Fantastic travel guide. Quite handy and portable with loads of information on history, restaurants, hotels, things to do and see, and more. Ended up using the pull-out map quite a bit and wrote lots of notes. Would definitely recommend using this to help plan a trip to London.

    A few years outdated (it mentions things that *will* be built for the 2012 Olympics, not what *has* been built), but overall very good. I'm using it to help plan what I can do during my breaks during studying abroad there.
