first book called “A Travel guide to London” was written
in 2006. I invited a reader to explore the walking tours in it. But
not everyone can manage walking eight to ten kilometres a day. It won’t
be possible to complete the route if someone wants to visit attractions
or museums on their way. (The book wasn’t published and only exists
as an e-book).
Now I offer a very long trip through the city
centre and to some of the neighboring districts. The guide is not about
the exact routes only but gives you an overview of what you will be
able to see, so you can choose any direction. Put more simply, by being
introduced to the content of this book, you can easily choose the route
For you to be able to get from one place to
another more quickly, I’ve listed the names of the nearest Underground
stations and the approximate distance between the places in metres.
I’ve included small sketches marked with
the featured spots and the streets of the area. Of course, they’re
not complete maps, but I hope they will help you to orient yourself.
In addition, I’ve also listed English postcodes of most of the
key points. For example, EC4M 8AD is the postcode of St. Paul's Cathedral.
When you input the postcode into your navigation device, you will learn
how to get there as well as being able to view the place and surroundings
without leaving your home, for example, in Google maps.
I must say that getting to know London in few
days is impossible. In order to see all the sightseeing spots described
in this guidebook you will need at least a week. You need to visit eight
boroughs which are quite far apart.
However, if you know where the spots are, you
could visit the ones of the most interest to you in one day. In my opinion,
three days in London is the minimum required to, at least, look around
it. This is why the book has been named as it has.
