London Out of Sight: exploring the city's secret green spaces is an essential handbook for the London resident or visitor seeking solace from the bustle of the city.

London doesn't immediately spring to mind as a city teeming with quiet and beautiful green areas, but the sprawl belies a wealth of fascinating and meditative spaces including charming squares, elegant graveyards, lush community and public gardens, parks and woods, working city farms and hidden points of interest.

Divided into rough geographic sections, the book features such diverse settings as: Hampstead Heath; Gunnersbury Triangle; the public and historic gardens at Chiswick House; the Geffrye Museum Gardens, Shoreditch; Elephant and Castle Urban Forest; the Magnificent Seven cemeteries; and fascinating sculpture, follies, abandoned tunnels and other idiosyncrasies.

With profiles that comprise practical information, historical and cultural contexts and beautiful original photography, London Out of Sight is an indispensable and aesthetically wonderful guide for anyone who wants to explore London's outdoor spaces and hidden attractions.
