OUR NEW SERIES! Throughout March & April 2015 we'll be compiling our definitive London Reading List.
We've asked London Walks Guides & London Walkers to recommend a favourite book or story, and we've also raided the archives here at The Daily Constitutional to bring a rich and varied selection of London-themed and London-set reading matter.
Whether you live here in London, work here, play here or if you are in the throws of planning a trip to visit us here, these are the books you need to read. As usual, you can give us a shout with your own recommendations – thrillers, literary classics, biographies, anthologies, anything! – at the usual email address, via Twitter or Facebook, or simply leave a comment below.
No.7 London Stories
By The London Walks Guides (2009)
A bit of a cheeky one, this, adding our own book to the LW Reading List.
So, rather than give it a big puff (that would be a little pompous) what we’ll do instead is give you a chance to hear some of it. From the horses’ mouths, as it were.
Over at The Mothership, David has been recording us for the past few months reading extracts from the book. Click HERE to listen to Tom read his own Legal London chapter; Adam reads from his Fleet Street chapter HERE; and HERE’S Nick reading from his Greenwich chapter. David does a bit of his Secret Westminster HERE.
(You can buy a copy of London Stories on several London Walks. Ask your guide.)
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.
