London 6: Westminster, Hardback Book


This essential guide opens up the treasures of London's most alluring quarter.

At its core are Westminster Abbey, Parliament, and the palatial Government buildings of Whitehall, together with the great band of Royal Parks stretching westward toward Kensington.

It also includes London's West End (Covent Garden, Soho, Mayfair, and St.

James's) and the less well-known Belgravia and Pimlico. For each area there is a detailed gazetteer and brief introduction.

A general introduction provides a historical and artistic overview.

Numerous maps and plans, over 100 new color photographs, full indexes, and an illustrated glossary help to make this book invaluable as both reference work and guide. This is the fifth of six Pevsner Architectural Guides volumes on London available in cloth.
