In this charming Victorian children's book, a family go sight-seeing in London. They visit places such as the Tower, Westminster Abbey and the British Museum, they marvel at how 'Nine hundred omnibuses rumble up and down', throw buns to the bears in the Zoo and enjoy muffins, milk and chestnuts from street vendors. Their very busy days out are told in verses and illustrated in a style similar to that of Kate Greenaway. First published in 1883; presented here in a beautifully produced facsimile edition.
