brausende Metropole
brausende Metropole

Classical shopping in the big classic department stores: Fortnum & Mason and Harrods, and in Oxford Street and Carnaby Street. Aside from the big tourist attractions, the metropolitan London offers colourful ethnic groups, fancy designs, mix fashion shopping with world food: our favourites are Columbia Road Flower Market (Shoreditch) and Spittalfilds Markets and Brick Lane. Coming on strong are Stoke Newington Church Street and Hackney (Hackney Walk, Broadway Market).

 

New is the tube East London Line (also known as Overground or Ginger Line), better characterised as hipster express with stops in Dalston, Hackney and Shoreditch: Hackney Wick, Hackney Central, Dalston Junction, Haggerston, Hoxton, Shoreditch High Street.

London MM-City (8. Auflage 2011)

gleich hier online bestellen; versandkostenfrei in Deutschland.

Es gibt zu jeder Zeit mehr als 1000 Gründe, nach London zu reisen: kaum enden wollende Shoppingmeilen und -märkte, urige Pubs und ausgefallene Szenekneipen und -läden, eine schier unendliche Restaurantvielfalt, Klassiker wie Westminster Abbey oder St. Paul's Cathedral, und und.............. … In den letzten Jahren hat sich zudem viel verändert: Durch die Eröffnung der Tate Gallery of Modern Art spielt die Themsemetropole in der Kunstszene wieder in der gleichen Liga wie New York und Paris, Architekturfreunde finden in der City eine Vielzahl postmoderner Bauten und die Olympiade im Jahre 2012 wirft bereits ihre Schatten voraus. In 16 Rundgängen führt der Autor den Leser durch das gesamte Stadtgebiet und berücksichtigt dabei auch unbekanntere Winkel wie Notting Hill, Camden oder Brixton. Und selbst bei einem zwischenzeitlichen Großstadt-Schock weiß das Buch Rat, denn Abhilfe schaffen gemütliche Ausflüge in ruhigere Fahrwasser wie Windsor Castle, Hampton Court oder Kew Gardens.
