Contrary to popular belief, London isn't all grime and crime. Despite the endless maze of paving, commuter rat race and never-stop, never-rest attitude, there's another side - a natural side - unearthed in this beautiful new book. Lost in London is for those who aren't in love with the capital's dynamic pace and crowded tubes. It's for those who crave the slower, sweeter side of the city. From orchards in Southwark, and birdwatchers on Tower 42, to the riverside pubs where you can spot rare butterflies, this urban nature guide lists the best places to slow down and reconnect with the world. Light-hearted and lovingly-researched, the book is packed with practical tips on turning local finds into jams, cordials, and boozy treats such as sloe gin and elderflower champagne. There is also advice on how to pick summer food for the winter months and Christmas presents, and how to make the most out of your garden, allotment, rooftop or window box. Packed with beautiful colour photographs, maps and original illustrations, Lost in London finds fresh air in the big smoke and proves that it really is possible to live more simply in the city.
