About the Book

A Traveller's History of London aims to bring London's past alive to the resident, traveller and student, to reveal the city's hidden treasures and forgotten places and guide the reader to the sights and sites that can still be seen and enjoyed. This Traveller's History gives the discerning visitor a full and comprehensive historical background to the capital's past and covers the period from London's first beginnings, right up to the present day-from Londinium and Lundenwic to the Dome and the Tate Modern. It has always been an international city and visitors from all over the world have recorded their impressions which have been drawn on extensively for this book. During London's 2000-year history, it has been praised for its elegance and civility and damned for its riots, rudeness, fogs and squalor. It has been exalted as a vision for the future and reviled as a vision of hell, revelled in by seekers after pleasure and coolly analyzed by seekers after truth.
