Rick Steves' London 2012 book. Rick Steves is dorky, but his guide books leave you incredibly prepared and well-informed. He gives you a ridiculous amount of helpful information in his usual chipper demeanor.

Mr. Rick Steves I really hope you read this review! But I bought 3 of your books and it made our 1 year anniversary trip the absolute best!!! I loved the restaurants and tips you gave! Buy the book just for your own personal concierge and you’ll get an amazing ROI. We didn’t even know the Louvre would be free on the first Sunday of the month until we read it and that of itself made the books essentially free! Even with google maps-you can’t quite figure out what is closest to you or make a “route” of action so the map on the book was amazing to have. This was my second time to several of these cities, but I hadn’t been in 10 years and everything was different. I loved it so much!!!

So, to the important information. The books are small and make sure to buy the current version so the recommendations are relevant. The book is organized well with some opening tips in the introduction. It will rank best things to see and I agree with the rankings. Maybe read this before you get to the city. Then it goes into a tour of the city or other tours of museums and such. I downloaded the audio book app, but my husband and I enjoyed just skimming it and we’re trying to be less attached to our phone. The tour section gave Great info and background on what you’re seeing. My favorite is that he gives the history of the city!!! Very great refresher if you’re trying to remember which HBO/showtime series were when and where in the cities (like the Tudors)! Jk but still helpful. We paid for a few tours so we didn’t have to mess with paying for transportation and making our own itinerary because we had limited time (and the means). But reading Rick Steves’ tours have us a base to better enjoy our paid tours. Then it touches on some sights. Same great info. Next is sleeping, I wish I had bought the boom before we planned hotels-we thought we did good research but we obviously didn’t on a few occasions. Then it goes to eating. FANTASTIC RECOMMENDATIONS with useful information to pick what you want. They are listed by what area of town you are in which is very helpful. *Rick- I would like you to rank local cuisine foods with your triangle system as well. And I think you need to include “nightlife/bars/pubs/happy hours” which he kind of does but it is not a separate section/color by area. And a list of popular local drinks, breweries, etc. I know that won’t appeal to everyone, but I would have liked some expert advice on those things. Last are practicalities which was an excellent resource. Helps with transport and just general things you should know. And it has some common phrases in each language-definite life saver! And then you get and EXCELLENT fold out map.

Book is small and light weight (maybe the size of an 8x5 photo). Easy to fit in a back pack pocket (it even fit in my coat pocket). Good size font and easy to use as a resource. You’d be crazy not to buy this for your trip because it will pay off.

Rick-if you’re ever up for a vacation together I bet you would be a blast!!!

This is a great book that I bought in conjunction with the England DVD and full London guidebook by Rick Steves, Of all three, this was perhaps the least useful to me. The DVD gave me the main ideas of what I wanted to do during my 10 day London vacation, and the full guidebook helped me plan out all the details. The pocket guide, while a nice colorful little book, was not really needed. I didn't even take it with me to London, and just took the full guidebook instead. The one part of the pocket guide I did take and use constantly during my trip was the tear out map in the back of the guide. This alone was worth the price of the book. I loved it not only for the street map, but also for the tube map on the back. The only thing to note is that it is more of a major streets only map, and when I needed a more detailed street map, I had to pull out my London Streetwise map that I had purchased separately.

Good enough for a short trip. It hits the major sights in Central London and the Pocket London is much handier than his full-size guides. The detachable map in the back was helpful and it includes a Tube map for Zone 1.

If you plan to spend more than 2 days in London, I would recommend getting Rick Steves' London instead of Rick Steves' Pocket London.

As a first-time traveler to London, I found this book full of great information. I loved that it was small enough to put in my purse so I could carry it with me during my vacation. I used it a lot! The pull out map was a wonderful reference and easy to use. Without this book, I wouldn't have known where to start. With only 2.5 days in London, this book really helped me plan what I wanted to see and how to easily get around. I plan to buy the corresponding book for any new city that I decide to visit! I highly recommend this book!

Can never go wrong with a Rick Steves book. They are informative, always have great travel tips and exciting new suggestions to try while traveling. We purchase one for each new place we travel too.

Went to city of London for one week and felt I should take along a travel book. Thought there would be plenty of great ones given the Olympics this past summer, but was somewhat disappointed. Tried this book and found it very helpful (and I saw other tourists with it as well). I love that it was compact and not too heavy so we could throw it in our daypack and be off. There is so much to do in the city, this helped us prioritize our interests. If we weren't sure about an attraction, we checked what Rick said. (Three triangles and we went!), although we went other places off of his walking tours based on our interests. The only disagreement I had with his two triangle recommendations - we went to a play at the Globe theater. My husband, not a Shakespeare fan, thought it was the best thing we did all week long, and for only 5 pounds/ticket (we were groundlings to experience it fully). Wish it would have had a little more about shopping (because that's my thing) but it did give me a good start in the Oxford/Regent St areas, and a little more about restaurants (but nothing that TripAdvisor couldn't help us with). The pull out map in the back was our favorite feature.
