About the new Marco Polo Spiral Guides

London Marco Polo Spiral Guide is a compact travel guide for people who have little time to prepare for a trip, don't want to miss anything, like to be inspired by great ideas for exciting days out and love all things ultra-practical and easy to use. Visit the Queen at Buckingham Palace, ride the London Eye or go shopping at Portabello market. The city awaits! 

It's something that brings out the best in a trip, whether it be to London or a different destination with a different guide, these spiral books are what is needed if you want to make the most of your time away. You learn as you walk, travel or prepare and that way you can pretend to the people you're with that you know soooo much about the place and wow them with your general knowledge and historical facts... that is what I use them for anyway, I need all the help I can get with looking mildly intelligent.

Inside the London Marco Polo Spiral Guide:

  • Top 10 sights: From the top down to make it easy to prioritise! 
  • The London Feeling gives tips to help you experience the essence of the city - for example, having a picnic in one of the many parks or afternoon tea in an elegant hotel. Get under the skin of London to see what makes it tick. 
  • The Magazine section provides an interesting and entertaining account of life on the Thames. It talks about London’s “green lungs”, the extensive royal parks - great for walks and open-air events. It also talks about the city’s traditional pubs as well as the famous London music scene and how you can experience this British metropolis for free.
