Edgar’s Guides are the brainchild of publisher and author Adam Wood, and author and walking tour operator Richard Jones.

Both are passionate about London, and their enthusiasm for the wonderful city is evident throughout each of the tours.

What is an Edgar Guide?

The basic premise of the books is to allow you to explore the many treasures that London has to offer in your own time and at your own pace.

To that end, each pocket-sized guidebook  is crammed full of information, with fun and fascinating facts as well as detailed step-by-step directions that will ensure you don't miss a thing.


Always Up-to-date

Adam and Richard check the routes regularly to ensure that they are up to date, and any changes are made on a free PDF version that you are given access to at the time of purchase.
