Time Out London Walks Volume 2


This second volume of Time Out London Walks explores more of the capital with some of London's finest writers. Resident novelists, artists, comedians and historians observe the city around them, tapping into its history, revealing its beauty and exposing its secrets.
In all there are 25 walks around London, taking in everything from hospitals, churches, temples, mosques and synagogues to courts, places of execution and cemeteries. Whether you find yourself chasing mushrooms among the deer in Richmond Park, memorising a Coleridgian digression in a rural lane on Hampstead Heath, or eyeing up a Masonic vestment in a shop off Drury Lane, you should expect the unexpected.
Claire Tomalin's journey to Greenwich with Samuel Pepys, dropping in on John Evelyn en route
Arthur Smith's eulogy to Balham
Frances Morgan's tour of the village community of Stoke Newington
Robert Elms's fond memories of Holborn in the 1970s
David Aaronovitch on a discovery of the canals, rivers and creeks of east London
