A guide to over 140 quiet, hidden and tranquil places for a peaceful spot of unwinding in the metropolis.
It is a lovely guide to quiet places to meet, drink, eat, swim, rest, shop, sleep or read. Interesting and attractive places where people don't have to strain to hear each other speak.
"London has become a very noisy city. This book will become 'the bible' for those thousands of people who are seeking some escape from the noise." John Stewart, chair of the UK Noise Association.
"This book seeks out areas of quiet, from parks to bookshops, cafes and restaurants - places that are worth visiting in themselves. Beautifully produced and illustrated, it is also a very practical book, ideal for anyone thinking of coming to London." Nigel Rodgers, Chair of Pipedown, the campaign against piped music in public places.
