This comprehensive and fully updated tourist memento presents a visual guide to the city's pomp and pageantry, celebrations, carnivals, and glittering night life. It celebrates the rich ethnic mix of diverse cultures that nevertheless exudes the unique character of London, here revealed in more than 500 photographs hand-picked from the archives of the Press Association. * Illustrates London's unique character as well as its cultural diversity
