Streets of London
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.
Lucy McMurdo is a native Londoner who has lived in the capital all her life. She managed to combine two of her major loves, history and tourism, when she qualified as a London Blue Badge Tourist Guide in 2003 and has been ‘walking the streets’ ever since, sharing her knowledge of the city with visitors from all over the world.
Lucy began her career in tour guiding over 30 years ago and since then has taught and trained guides at the University of Westminster and City University. Nowadays, in addition to writing guidebooks about the capital she examines trainee guides and runs guide training courses for staff at Hampton Court Palace and other British tourist attractions.
Lucy is also the author of London in 7 Days.
