This summer, the world’s eyes will turn to London for the 2012 Summer Olympics, which take over the capital from July 25 through August 15. Whether you plan on watching from home, or joining the 380,000 international visitors expected in London during the Games, Chronicles of Old London offers a fun and interesting way to discover Britain’s capital city.
This new book introduces London through 30 dramatic true stories spanning 2,000 years of British history—from the bloody rebellion of Boudica to the modern monarchy, and from Shakespeare to the Sex Pistols. In addition, author and London native Kevin Jackson has created 9 walking tours that visit major tourist attracts as well as lesser-known historic sites throughout the city.
Get an early start on your tour of London with Chronicles of Old London, available now as a travel-friendly eBook for iPad and Kindle, or pick it up at your favorite bookstore on June 1. Let the Games begin!
