This is the Londoner's bible. Just about everyone owns the paperback size but its produced in all sizes from pocket-handkerchief (centre and City only) to atlas-sized. If you go to London this could be your bible too - but before you buy it check that you can read the print. Some of them have very tiny type and they are no better than useless.

All you can do then is stop a passerby and ask them if they know where 'x' is and hand them the A-Z and then they won't be able to read it either.

This book is very perfect! Perfect to those people who visits London for the first time. This is the best guide since it includes details of the ways, trains and many more. You can enjoy walking and riding with confidence that you’re not going to lose your way. I hope that I can read more book about other country.

Just one word of warning - if you look up a street that has been renamed under its old name in the index, it will give you a map reference, but no indication that the name of the street on the map is the new name! This caught me out initially as I was looking for Henry Street NW8 which became Allitsen Road sometime around 1938. To be fair there is an old to new index and vice versa.
Ah, the venerable "A to Zed." This was the one guidebook my London host insisted I buy, and it makes a nice memento of the trip, too. I'll take it back with me when I go again--hope they haven't moved the streets around too much!

Although THE definitive map for London, it is at times cluttered - the street identifiers are sometimes hard to find.

The most important accessory ever for someone like me - a Londoner with no sense of geography or direction.
