Best of the London Blogs This Week


Dave Hill’s London Blog for The Guardian newspaper is a must read for all Londoners. If you are scratching your head about the complexities of London issues such as built environment and travel, Mr Hill offers clear analysis with a healthy dose of iconoclasm mixed in. Read him here: www.theguardian.com/uk/davehillblog






Ian Visits – www.ianvisits.co.uk – is a fixture on The Daily Constitutional’s reading list. His remit is broad, but he's particularly strong on travel issues and events. He’s often more grumpy than Mr Hill (above), but it is this directness that makes him the perfect London commentator. We’re particularly fond of his rants against PR types who spam him to write about their latest trinkets. His most recent post on that topic can be read here. He also compiles the best London travel roundup in town. Bookmark him now. Just don't ask him to publicise your tat. 






A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
