Adventure Walks London Map
Top marks go to the enchanting Adventure Walks London Map. It's wonderfully child friendly and colourful, and not only lists the best sightseeing walks, but also includes where to buy the coolest ice-creams, sweetest sweets and crispest chips.
For those with young whippersnappers in need of half term escapades, a new London map with child-friendly advice would be a good investment. The Adventure Walks London Map sets out the best museums, city farms, sweet shops, ice cream parlours and other diversions to keep your kid (and hopefully you) entertained
I’m really impressed by how much detailed information the authors have managed to squeeze onto this map without making it seem too crowded. I also love the sense of wonder and (re)discovery inspired every time we unfold the map.
The Bumper Book of London
This colourful, breezy book about England's capital city is bursting with facts: 53 countries are smaller than London. Hampstead has London's highest point – 440 feet – and deepest tube station at 192 feet below ground. And, in the voice of Michael Caine perhaps, did you know that the first free public library in London was at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church in Trafalgar Square?
It's a book that will be lapped up by anyone with an inquisitive mind. Like Lego and Haribo sweets, you might buy the Bumper Book of London for your kids, but you'll soon be clawing it off them.'
Despite being yet another addition to the jostling ranks of books on London, The Bumper Book of London is a refreshing, funny and accessible little book,halfway between a history book and a travel guide. Unlike weightier tomes with theme-based chapters, which can be a pain for children interested in a particular era, the book tackles London in chronological order, from the Romans to the present. Whilst not being as deliciously ghastly as the Horrible History series it’s actually (dare I whisper it?...) far more useful, with general facts as well as the sections of engaging trivia such as plague remedies and what children were instructed to pack before being evacuated. The imaginative 'London's Best' section at the back is invaluable for those who've exhausted the usual run-of-the-mill activities.
'The perfect book to provide all the information needed by any visitor to London for the Olympics - or at any other time. Living up to its claim, this book is crammed full of fascinating information about every aspect of life in the capital today and how it links to the great city of the past.'
Love Reading for Kids
'The Bumper Book of London is the perfect companion for your adventures. Packed with exciting ideas for days out and fascinating facts, this book has enough in it to keep you busy all spring and all summer.'
The Golden Treasury
With a sharply honed instinct for what engages children, they have picked out the golden nuggets of London's colourful story and dished it up in a witty, compelling and easily digestible style
The Bumper Book of London crams in nearly 300 pages of London fun and fact that will charm you to the eyebrows
An excellent book for any lover of trivia. Broadly arranged by history, you will learn about art, architecture, landmarks, hidden places, ghosts, pearly kings and queens, festivals, street names, games, traditions, football teams and much much more...do get yourself a copy of this book.

London Adventure Walks
A little imagination is all it takes to get your kids off the sofa.
This little book could open the door to adventure, make history come alive and excite the vital curiosity and imagination of today's TV-obsessed children
Camden New Journal
A must-have for families in and around London, or anyone thinking of visiting the capital with children
Keren David, author
Each walk is accompanied by clear, step-by-step instructions of where to go, as well as the interesting sights and landmarks along the way
This is exactly the sort of book that I would have loved to have when growing up in London. I am delighted to be able to use it with my own children, and discover parts of the capital that I never knew existed
Adventure Walks for Families
It's day-tripping season - but where to go? Becky Jones and Clare Lewis have done all the hard work for you, bar packing the picnic. This great pocket-size book doesn't just point you in the direction; it's packed with ideas for pit stops, activities to enjoy while you're out and about and story tapes to take along for the journey.
A walking scheme so wily that it should get even the most lumpen child of its sulky bottom
We love this new book… it is filled with ideas for keeping children amused
I love this pocket sized book and think it is a great way of packaging 'the family walk'. The authors have injected good old-fashioned fun and adventure into all of their suggested walks
There should be such a little book of wonders for every major city in the land - a godsend for parents battling to get the Wellingtons on a pair of crossly kicking little feet as the familiar mantra trickles out tearfully once more: "I - hate - walking! It's - BOR - ing!" Not no more, it ain't
It's an absolute treasure trove for parents and children. Not just great walks, but songs, food, fascinating facts and fun things to do
