I am curious London

Curiocity-1024x683

Readers of TBTP know that I am enamored with London. Over the years, I have had the good fortune to spend quite a bit of time there and I even wrote a budget travel guide for the British capital. So, I’m always on the look out for new and inventive travel books about the great metropolis. Curiocity, written by Henry Eliot and Matt Lloyd-Rose, offers readers an intriguing take on lesser known curiosities, historical sites, landmarks, and unusual aspects of London.

The new guide, literally a London A to Z, is published by the Penguin Random House imprint Particular. The book is handily divided into 26 chapters, one for every letter of the alphabet. Along with fascinating details, the authors have included wonderful charts, maps, and original illustrations.
