Streets of London
The Story Behind London's Most Famous StreetsBook - 2017
With a history going back 2000 years it is hardly surprising that so many of London's streets
are known throughout the globe. Even today several Roman roads pass through the capital,
and London's financial center, The City of London, is full of winding alleys and ancient ways
with names from times gone by. Over the years, the City's streets have become less familiar
than roads in and around the West End, and for this reason The Streets of London: The story
behind London's most famous streets is primarily about roads in the City of Westminster and
the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea.
Author Lucy McMurdo encourages you to turn off the main trail and discover more of London's
fascinating back doubles and alleyways, so often passed by and ignored. You will never be
bored exploring, for the streets of London each have their own individual story to tell.
