A Traveller's History of London gives a full and comprehensive historical background to the capital's past and covers the period from London's first beginnings, right up to the present day—from Londinium and Lundenwic to Docklands' development. It reveals the city's hidden treasures and forgotten places and guides the reader to the sights and sites that can still be seen and enjoyed.

Richard Tames
lectures for the London programs of Syracuse University and the American University and is a London Tourist Board registered "Blue Badge" guide. He is the author of American Walks in London and A Traveller’s History of Japan.

Media Reviews
"...recommended for both would-be visitors and armchair travellers alike: It provides a historical background to London and condenses 2000 years of history into a lively, readable format which will prove particularly inviting for history buffs who want to have the book in hand while visiting parks, museums and historical sites around London."-The Midwest Book Review

"...dip into Richard Tames's literary, lyrical A Traveller's History of London."-The Sunday Telegraph

"...the quirky nature of Tames's information and the sheer depth of research is a total joy."-Westminster & Pimlico News
