Book Summary:

London was never planned as a major city but is the result of the fusion of a rich tapestry of ancient villages and more modern developments. Many of these villages have been consumed by bustling cosmopolitan areas such as Mayfair and Soho, while others, like Chiswick, Dulwich and Richmond, are more rural and still recognisable today. If you're seeking a genuine village vibe in London - a village green (perhaps with a pond), an ancient church and graveyard, a local history museum, an abundance of independent shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs, and - most important of all - a real community feel, it isn't so difficult to find if you know where to look. Even in central London, there are districts - such as Bloomsbury, Chelsea and Notting Hill - where you can still find streets and tight-knit communities with an authentic village feel. Our 20 walks take in many of the city's most interesting and picturesque villages. All you need to enjoy them is a stout pair of shoes, a sense of adventure - and this book. We hope you find them as enjoyable and rewarding as we did.
