Recommended by Gayle
‘Long out of print, and now available again in this glorious facsimile of the 1966 original, Nairn’s London is a funny, angry, stirring tour of London’s architecture. Fifty years old, and still one of the best books on London going. (And very good on pubs as well.)’

TELEGRAPH BOOKS OF THE YEAR and OBSERVER BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2014
'This book is a record of what has moved me between Uxbridge and Dagenham. My hope is that it moves you, too.'
Nairn's London is an idiosyncratic, poetic and intensely subjective meditation on a city and its buildings. Including railway stations, synagogues, abandoned gasworks, dock cranes, suburban gardens, East End markets, Hawksmoor churches, a Gothic cinema and twenty-seven different pubs, it is a portrait of the soul of a place, from a writer of genius.
