Time Out London Walks features 30 walks from London writers, each revealing a personal insight into their chosen corner of London.
From ancient woodland to modern skyscrapers, motorway underpasses to stately homes, most parts of the city are subject to the scrutiny of the writers.
The end result is a book that can be read with pleasure at home, as a collection of writing about London, and above all used as a thought-provoking guide to a series of walks through the capital.
