Return to London - Terence Jenkins

I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, thank you!


Return to London is a short book filled with little chunks of London history and a guide to lesser known parts of London. Granted, when I visited last year, I actually went to see some of the places mentioned in this book, but others I had not yet heard of. 


One thing I noticed immediately when I started reading is that Terence Jenkins really has a passion for the city, which makes it so much better to read about it. His entries are short, making it easy to read one or a few at a time. Some history is given, but never too much so you don't loose interest.


Every entry is accompanied by one picture, it is only that sometimes I thought there could have been some more, as he tends to describe multiple things and I'd like to be able to visualise all of them. But this is just a minor complaint. I think it's a nice book when you're about to travel to London, some places you would normally walk past are worth a quick look.
