- Updated edition published to celebrate the opening of the new Galleries of Modern London in May 2010
- Fascinating guide to the history of London, as displayed through the Museum’s rich collections
The single most important source of knowledge on London, the Museum of London is unique in being both a national and a local museum. Drawing on its collection of over a million objects, this official guide covers all aspects of social, cultural and political life in London, from the first pre-historic settlements right up to the present day. Illustrated with new colour photography and published to celebrate the refurbishment of the lower floor of the building (to create the new Galleries of Modern London and a new setting for the Lord Mayor’s Coach in Spring 2010) this guide is a fascinating exploration of a vibrant city’s history and its people.
