Virgin Books have today published LONDON IN AN HOUR by Kate Hodges.

The book features 120 bite-size ideas for things to do and places to visit in London in under an hour. It is organised around the range of activities London has to offer, with chapters to help you find original and diverting suggestions for things to do, as well as a few places to eat and drink. LONDON IN AN HOUR includes tips on how to squeeze in some culture or some exercise; find the best places to buy a birthday present or go for a quick pampering; discover outdoor spaces or quiet hideaways to escape the chaos; avoid the typical al desco lunch; make the most of your mornings; and turn a spare hour in-between a meeting or at a train station into an hour well spent. It also features top ten lists for those really pushed for time, and comprehensive indices by location and activity type to help you find what you need, quickly.

Whether you’re a visitor, on a family day out or a busy working Londoner, LONDON IN AN HOUR will transform your experience of the city.
