This book is exactly as described. Included are 11 London walks that offer pedestrians glimpses of this most literary of cities. Each walk highlights both fictional and actual figures. For example, walk 5 includes Pall Mall, Picadilly and Mayfair. A few of the streets in this walk include St. James Street, Berkeley Street and Bruton Street, among others. Mention is made of those who belonged to the Reform Club including Anthony Trollope, Arnold Bennet, Conan Doyle, Thackeray and others; that is just one of many neighborhood stops.
There are photographs and maps for each walk. I also really liked that walking conditions are noted.
Both real and virtual travelers will be impressed by the rich history that is revealed in these pages.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Pen & Sword for this title. All opinions are my own.
