You buy hillwalking guides to the Peak District, don't you? Or the Black Mountains, or the Quantocks...? In any case, isn't Rome the city of Seven Hills, and San Francisco the location for the plunging downhill car chase in Bullitt? But London is also a city of hills: Highgate Hill, Herne Hill, Shooters Hill, Muswell Hill, Ludgate Hill - the place names alone denote the topography. But until now there hasn't been a walking guide to the capital that makes a point of seeking out and threading together all the capital's high ground, summits and fabulously panoramic views... Now, Hillwalking London provides ten routes, all round Greater London, of striking high-level walking, to make you see this amazing city in a new way. Here are the Seven Hills of Croydon; the Sewardstone Hills north of Chingford; the string of former telegraph stations stretching from New Cross Gate across to Forest Hill, as well as cherished ascents like Hampstead Heath, Greenwich Park and Richmond Hill. A Base Camp for refreshments is given for every expedition.
