The historic City of London, 'the Square Mile', is one of the world's most densely built-up urban areas, yet within this close-grained urban fabric exist a great number of green oases--gardens and open spaces which provide recreation and respite for thousands who work in the City. This authoritative and lavishly produced work, illustrated in full colour throughout, provides a guide, inventory and appraisal of all the open spaces in the City. A specially designed full-colour 'Trails' section allows visitors and locals to explore familiar and less familiar corners of the city. As both a major land use survey and an unusual addition to London's guidebook literature, this book will have wide appeal.
