Description

So how well do you know London? Even the celebrated ?knowledge? of London?s black cab drivers will only get you from A to B. Chambers London Gazetteer, however, gives you the full picture, with over 1300 pen portraits of London?s districts that describe their personality, history and architecture. Packed with detail including little-known facts about, for example, famous former residents, Chambers London Gazetteer covers the whole of Greater London: from Bloomsbury to Burnt Oak, Fitzrovia to Foots Cray, Hampstead to Heron Quays. It weaves a rich and colourful tapestry of our capital city, beyond the well-trodden tourist paths and beyond the bounds of the Circle line or the congestion charging zone.
