London is an epic story, with glorious locations that make your heart race and your head think. And, like all the best stories, it has wonderful characters. This book is filled with those characters talking about their favourite aspects of this phenomenal city. From leaders in their fields to local legends, these are the people whose beat sets the rhythm of London. Their brief was simple: to reveal something that captivated them about London. The result is a diverse range of vignettes that capture the eccentricity, authenticity and true originality of London.
Beautifully illustrated throughout with stunning photography by Tony Briggs and Andy Donohoe, amongst others, this unique book is the perfect package both for those who have already fallen in love with London, and for those who are just beginning to discover the city.
