London: A City in Pictures forms a tour of the city’s historic streets of medieval and classical architecture, sumptuous palaces and distinctive bridges, and modern skyscrapers such as The Shard. It captures the rich characters of Soho and Chinatown, London’s quaint squares and verdant parks, the vibrant theatreland, world-class restaurants, the ubiquitous London pub, fine museums and art galleries, and the stadia that host sporting spectacles from rugby, cricket and cycling to athletics, football and lawn tennis.

This comprehensive and fully updated tourist memento presents a visual guide to the city’s pomp and pageantry, celebrations, carnivals, and glittering night life. It celebrates the rich ethnic mix of diverse cultures that nevertheless exudes the unique character of London, here revealed in more than 500 photographs hand-picked from the archives of the Press Association.
