What will you see? London Explored

Secret, surprising and unusual places to discover in the Capital

#LondonExplored #NetGalley Pub Date 30 Nov 2021

This title offers a unique glance at one photographer’s London. Organized by neighborhood, the book features photographs with descriptions of the sites. Some of these are well-known, while others were certainly new to me. For example, there is a Foundling Hospital where Handel had been a patron. Then, what about the London Sewing Machine Museum or Raqib Shaw’s Sausage Factory. There are also more familiar sites including the London Library and Lambeth Palace Gardens. Both armchair and real travelers may well enjoy losing themselves in these pages. The text that accompanies the photos is packed with information. I found this to be an absorbing escape from my own home.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
