The walks cover many of Londons most stunning views and its most beautiful scenery, as well as much compelling waterside industrial archaeology. They were developed for the highly-rated City Literary Institute courses, and have been tried and tested several times by the author. Using his experience and local knowledge, David has produced commentaries that are a pleasure to read and clearly point out what to look for, both the popular tourist attractions and significant lesser-known sights. The walks are designed to last about two hours, including stops and visits to places of interest with free entry. Each walk includes a summary of the highlights, a clear route map, detailed descriptions of approximately 15 stopping points and listings of places worth a further visit, with information on opening times, addresses and entrance fees. Dramatic photographs of some of the spectacles which adorn Londons waterside enhance and enliven the text.
