American Walks in London
Ten Step-by-Step Itineraries for North American Visitors
Richard Tames

5" x 7 3/4" • 160 pages
ISBN 9781566562133 • paperback • $14.95

See where Benjamin Franklin worked as a printer in a church over eight centuries old, where Whistler painted that portrait of his mother, where Teddy Roosevelt got married, where FDR spent his honeymoon. Robert Frost and T.S. Eliot were first published in London. Fred Astaire had his dancing shoes made here. Ava Gardner and Jimi Hendrix died here. The ten walks in this book (each starting and ending at a Tube stop) will take you to all London's most famous sights as well as to places you never knew existed - showing them to you as you've never seen them before. Walking tours are the best way to experience and see the depth of London's heritage and its many direct connections with American and Canadian visitors. En route, the author recommends: • Restaurants, cafés, fast-food and take-out places • Pubs and wine bars • Public toilets • Delays and diversions • Shopping and souvenirs • Sights and sites, museums and galleries • Bus and walking tours

Richard Tames is a qualified London "Blue Badge" Guide specializing in walking tours. For twenty-three years, he taught American students for the London programs of Syracuse University and the American University. His other books include A Traveller's History of London, Bloomsbury Past, Soho Past and City of London Past.
