Now, Aurum publishes a completely new walker’s guide just to the London Thames, laid out to its new full-colour Trail Guide design, and including the extension to Crayford . Here is all the history along the river from the Mesolithic Period timber piles near Vauxhall Bridge to the new Shard skyscraper shooting skywards at London Bridge. It covers all the folklore from the famous frost fairs to the much-lamented beach near Tower Bridge, not forgetting the poignant recent visit of a large whale to the centre of London. The Thames winds all the way through London’s history and culture, from Henry VIII’s Hampton Court to the chequered fate of the Dome/O2: the London resident as much as the visiting tourist will find in this guide something new every step of the way.

This guide is part of the Bradt series that embraces the Slow Tourism movement, and encourages visitors to slow down and discover the often hidden and unsung delights of one of the most unspoiled and varied of English counties.The New Forest, where free-roaming ponies and cows regularly halt traffic and donkeys peer in shop windows, is ideally suited to a Slow guide. Despite the name 'New Forest' the landscape varies with towering conifers lining the Bolderwood and Rhinefield Ornamental Drives, dense broad-leaved trees in the ancient and ornamental woodlands and miles of open heath. Just beyond the heart of the Forest, are riverside and coastal roads by Buckler's Hard and East End, the water meadows of the Avon Valley and the yachting town of Lymington. The villages in and around the New Forest have distinct characters. In Brockenhurst animals regularly walk on main roads. Burley is known for its link to witchcraft and Fordingbridge is a charming small town on the banks of the Avon.Author Emily Laurence Baker outlines the 'working Forest,' including how various organisations manage the land, how grazing animals have shaped its outline for centuries, and how the commoning system functions. Interviews with an Agister, local butchers, conservationists, commoners and other locals bring the book to life. The guide also features a wide range of activities, including walking, horse-riding and cycling, and explores accommodation and food options, from camping to luxury hotels and from simple pubs to the more gourmet variety. All venues are the author's personal selection.The New Forest is easily accessible to overseas visitors - about two hours from central London by train, bus or car.
