The London Encyclopaedia
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
So you think you know London? This illustrated encyclopaedia is packed with more knowledge than the best-informed black-cab driver, from the A-Z Street Map to the Zoological Society via Marble Arch and Leicester Square. Nearly 6,000 alphabetical entries explore every monument, building, street and park, as well as the events and institutions that have shaped the city. This third, thoroughly revised edition takes London into the multicultural 21st century, with new entries on recent landmarks such as the Gherkin.
