Aimed at travellers who are spending a few days in the city — either for work or pleasure — it offers up specific itineraries and cool ideas, from the best areas for independent shops to where to take clients for superb cocktails. It has a code system of letters to identify each type of sightseeing such as C for culture and W for walks, a monochrome map at the front and loads of colour photography throughout.
Also included is a section of 12 essays, written by the author and Monocle staff on urban exploration. It suggests the coolest restaurants with fabulous interiors, new design-led hotels, lively nightlife spots and influential galleries — all with colour photography. And best of all, it has a little price tag to match its size. Split into neighbourhoods which are more like areas, from Covent Garden to Hampstead Village, it gives details on what to do in each of the 60 or so areas in the form of an alphabetical list of attractions and amenities, all on one condensed page, with a full-page, detailed road map — it makes for a great directory.
But what it lacks is actual photography. One of the best go-to travel publishers is Lonely Planet.
MPHONLINE | Top 10 London: (DK Eyewitness Travel Guide)
But still, the name stands, as does its reliable reputation. The London city guide is the most comprehensive guide in its range and is rather chunky, owing to its detail and breadth of coverage.
But what makes these guides so useful is its way of splitting up areas, and numbering sights on the maps of each section. An unusual guide is exactly how this should be described. The compact guide only has one map at the front, and only six areas which are grouped together, covering rather large areas starting with Westminster to Camden and finishing with South Bank to Brixton. With the most gorgeous covers and tonal, hand-drawn, cartoonish maps to draw you in, you really can judge this book by its cover. This day-by-day guide covers the best things to see and do, and how to do them in the most time-efficient way.
Each of the tours — ranging from a full, all-encompassing day to a literary interest tour — uses a map that takes you from stop to stop. It begins with 16 of the best suggestions, which include the heading to the top of The Shard, afternoon tea at The Goring hotel and Shakespeare's Globe. At the back, there is a tear-proof map, which is great for kids.
Revealing the uniqueness of each city, creative locals are asked for recommendations on everything from music and fashion to art and architecture. Looks-wise, it comes across as a mix between a guidebook and an Instagram account, with lots cool photos — some taking up the whole page.

But maps are small, so you might need to take another with you. The guided walks give street-by-street directions and times. The food and drink section is small and sticks to the classics, with no mention of pop-ups and street food markets. On some occasions, we earn revenue if you click the links and buy the products, but we never allow this to bias our coverage. The reviews are compiled through a mix of expert opinion and real-world testing.

London is such an awesome city with sooo so much to see, and choosing what you want to do and how to spend your usually very limited time there can be quite a challenge.
