From Herb Lester | Designed by Crispin Finn
After 2000 years of human habitation, it is quite remarkable how much green space remains in this city. This guide charts places all but untouched by human hand: ancient woodland and meadows, marshes and rivers. It also locates those heartening spots where man has lost the battle with nature and wild plants have taken root amid concrete and brick.
From the ancient forests of north London to the east’s abandoned sewage works, south London’s commons and the west’s roaming deer, Wild London is your handy guide to finding green among the grey.
Most guides try to tell you everything there is to know about a city, Herb Lester just tell you how to enjoy it. Each city is researched the old-fashioned way: asking friends, acquaintances, cab drivers and concierges for their tips and then walking, tasting, sipping, and peering into doorways and down alleys. Each guide is printed in England on 100% recycled paper.
