Overview

London Adventure Walks for Families offers 25 carefully devised, imaginative explorations of the city from its center to its suburbs, all accessible by public transport and specifically designed to appeal to the mindset of children. These intriguing explorations of the historic (Tudor London/Fire of London/Florence Nightingale), literary ( Coram Boy, Dickens, Shakespeare, 101 Dalmatians, Paddington Bear) and famous sights of the capital draw children in and keep them actively involved and enthralled. For the parents, there is all the add-on information that families need, such as facilities, opening times, shops, food, transport, places for a sit-down, places for a run-around, I-spy lists, and other game ideas. Highly creative in its content and design, the format tempts children and adults as well as London natives and tourists alike. Packed with tantalizing facts and unusual places, the book draws on the urban culture as much as the countryside within the city, revealing secret facts, hidden places, and little explored treasures of London.

About the Author

Clare Lewis is a journalist and former managing editor at Conde Nast, IPC and National Magazines, including Tatler, Brides, Country Living and Homes and Gardens specialising in articles on crafts, design and interiors. Her skills as a commissioning editor and writer have given her an eye for detail and putting words and pictures together in a clear format. Together with television producer Becky Jones, she created the Adventure Walks for Families series of guide books, inspiring children and families to get out and about, exploring the stories and games of an old fashioned outdoors childhood through a good tramp in the countryside. The success of the first book in the series, together with Clare's knowledge of London (as a true cockney, she was born and bred within the sound of Bow Bells) has led to the publication of London Adventure Walks, The Adventurer's Notebook and The Bumper Book of London.
