Description

London is an exciting, vibrant and often noisy city but this busy metropolis also has a quiet side. Siobhan Wall encourages Londoners and visitors to the capital to wander away from the crowds and discover calm amid the hustle and bustle.
This is a guide to over 100 quiet places to enjoy the art and culture that London has on offer, from small museums and light-filled galleries to hushed libraries, characterful bookshops and places to find beautifully designed, handcrafted objects.
With evocative photographs and a short description for each location, including travel, access and contact details, Quiet London: Culture reveals hidden, tranquil places in one of the world’s liveliest cities.
