Over the past four centuries London has expanded from within its medieval walls to absorb Westminster, Southwark and the surrounding villages. This impressive book explores the diverse forces driving the city's apparently haphazard growth, with more than 400 photographs in colour and black and white showing the architectural diversity of its civic halls and corporate headquarters, theatres and stadiums, Victorian villas and post-war estates, and its world-famous landmarks from the Tower of London to the London Eye.
