Review:

"sometimes you just want to uncover a slice of city living and enjoy a cup of tea with the locals, something which Zena Alkayat's new book, London Villages, does very well. This nicely produced almost pocket-sized book covers all corners of London, delving into a generous cross-section of neighborhoods or 'villages', where a sense of local community remains intact and you can really discover a different side to the cityâ?¿Each of the 30 different neighborhoods feature a short but sweet introduction, evocative images by Kim Lightbody, a beautifully illustrated brightly colored map by Jenny Seddon and a handful of the best restaurants, pubs and shops in the area. â?¿And it's not just relevant for foreignersâ??we Londoners are often guiltier than most of sticking to our own well-trodden stomping grounds and rarely venturing across the river. This book fuses together both familiar and unfamiliar parts of the city, inspiring even the most territorial Londoner to try something new. No easy task!" â?? EuroCheapo



"...a fantastic compilation of original experiences in the tucked away "villages" of London...I can't wait to take London Villages on my next visit to its namesake city and explore London for locals. This is an especially great book for the repeat visitor to London, or anyone who wants to go beyond the traditional tourist itinerary. As a former frequent business traveler to London, I would have loved a book like this on my visits. You could pick one village and get a taste of something unique without devoting a huge amount of time. I highly recommend it!" - Choosy Nomad



'It's a quick read but a nice book to refer back to and a great introduction to lots of areas you may not have visited before. It is a lovely gift book and a nice book to keep for yourself too.'

'You'll never want to go to Oxford Street again.'

`An homage to unsung areas, among them the bohemian and the works in progress, and an inspiring reference book for the jaded tourist or native.'

"London Villages should be on every Anglophile's shelf. For visitors to the City, it will be indispensable when either planning your next trip or in order to learn more about the history of London. For locals, London Villages will no doubt keep that age old question, "What should we do this weekend?" at bay for months to come." - Number One London
