I'm going there! I like a Rough Guide for this trip in part because they're Brits, so hopefully they know what they're talking about. 'Course I'll be looking through several others as well. I'm going at the end of August, with me Mum.Melissa
Rough Guides have reformatted and updated a good number of their guides including London. I have the newest one and I love the new format. Great coverage of the city, it is divided by neighbourhoods. Also divided by attractions that are north, south, east, and west. I find this edition easier to read, and the addition of more full colour pictures is nice. The best thing however are the maps. There are way more and easy to read and very accurate. You won't need anything else to help you explore the city.Edmund
If you take one guidebook to London, this is the one.Note: In my opinion the "Rough Guide' series of guide books are the best by a mile.
