Explore The City’s Best Local NeighbourhoodsBy Zena Alkayat, photographs by Kim Lightbody

Illustrated maps by Jenny Seddon

There are dozens of tucked-away ‘villages’ in London, from Columbia Road to Clarendon Cross.
This book features 30 of the most unique and vibrant neighbourhoods, alongside atmospheric photographs and beautifully illustrated maps, and celebrates the spirit and history of these local areas. It reveals the best independent shops, markets, cafés, parks and museums to visit.

I commissioned Jenny Seddon to produce the beautiful illustrated maps, which work well with Kim’s contemporary photographic style. A small format book to carry in your bag and inspire your weekend activities.
