APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Journalist Simon Jenkins is also chairman of the National Trust—and his deep knowledge of (and abiding affection for) English landscapes makes England’s 100 Best Views an informative and enjoyable guide. His roundup of the best spots from which to take in London’s sights is an indispensable resource for residents and visitors, complete with photographs and literary citations. Embedded maps make it easy to visit the vantage points described in the book, although Jenkins’ colourful historical anecdotes, delightful turns of phrase and biting wit concerning the city’s chaotic development can take you on an eye-opening journey from the comfort of your favourite reading chair.
