Its direct successor, the present Blue Guide to London, is designed to incorporate many desirable additions to the text of Central London, and at the same time to describe the chief points of interest in the new Greater London area, while keeping the price of the book as low as possible. The Guide takes into account the extensive recent changes that have altered the face of London. In addition its carefully planned series of routes will assist the traveller to explore many fascinating by-ways that lie, largely ignored, in the suburban region. Strictly outside the bounds of London, but well within the reach of metropolitan transport, Windsor and St. Albans have been included since they are generally visited from the capital. The Blue Guide to London thus also better complements its companion Blue Guide to England. London's unequalled art collections have their own special section in the book, thus making it easier to trace the whereabouts of any significant work. Preliminary information gives the usual details about hotels and restaurants, travel and amusements; plans accompany the descriptions of important museums and galleries. All the street plans, printed for convenience in page form, have been brought up to date; and a useful frontispiece map, by John Bartholomew, has been provided to show the connections between the centre and environs. All this and the comprehensive index are intended to ease the progress of the visitor, and, incidentally, to equip him with a definitive reference book to London.
