"Read about London" London Local Custom Tip by KennetRose

London Local Customs: 710 reviews and 860 photos

Invest in 'The London Encyclopaedia' edited by Ben Weinreib and Christopher Hibbert. It's not a tourist guide, but a compendium of historical information that brings the most humdrum locations to life. Its accuracy has often being questioned, but I can guarantee that it will keep you fascinated long after you have returned home.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
