About This Book

A professional walking guide shares twenty one of the best guided walks along the British capital's scenic waterways, packed with beautiful sights. Meandering through the London metropolis are the city's many waterways. From the mighty Thames to tranquil streams, from historic wharves to buzzing docklands, the twenty one walks in this book follow these waters, revealing a hidden London full of history, discovery, and surprises. Professional walking guide Gilly Cameron-Cooper has carefully selected the best routes to uncover the capital's distinct waterways. An enthusiastic explorer, she will lead you alongside docks, rivers, and canals in the footsteps of Roman traders, Tudor adventurers, and Victorian engineers. These paths will take you past iconic landmarks, great feats of engineering, and a variety of lesser-known treasures. London's rivers and canals were once pulsing arteries of industry, but today they provide a haven for wildlife and walkers alike. Here you will find green and peaceful retreats by the water, just moments away from the bustle of sprawling suburbia. Full color photographs, clear maps, and practical route directions make Walking London's Waterways the essential companion for discovering a new side to London. "A handsome volume…the authoritative and conversational commentary is endlessly absorbing."β€” Walk magazine "If you too are someone who enjoys discussing the hidden side of London then this book will have plenty to offer."β€” Real Travel "A super read and inspires you to get out there and to try the walks for yourself."β€” The River Thames Guide
