London is a wonderful city, but sometimes the hustle and bustle, noise and grime, can get too much and you feel the need for some peace and quiet, clean air and nature.
But there's no need to flee to the countryside, as London has so many surprisingly 'rural' areas and activities to offer.
With everything from beautiful gardens and country walks, to cosy pubs and nature reserves, Rural London will help you to discover a very unexpected side of the capital city.
Discover the best farmers markets, watch some Morris dancing and visit a country show.
Take a stroll around London's villages, go bird-spotting and take some time out in a beautiful park.
With colour photographs, short descriptions setting the scene and visiting details for each entry, this guide to rural London provides plenty of ideas and inspiration for places to visit and things to do, with something here for everyone.
