Publisher Description

A Guardian Book of the Year
 
“A unique and electrifying travelogue” of adventures in off-limits spaces in the world’s greatest cities, from an urban explorer “as fit, agile and fearless as a ninja” (Booklist)
 
It is assumed that every inch of the world has been explored and charted; that there is nowhere new to go. But perhaps it is the everyday places around us—the cities we live in—that need to be rediscovered. What does it feel like to find the city’s edge, to explore its forgotten tunnels and scale unfinished skyscrapers high above the metropolis? Explore Everything reclaims the city, recasting it as a place for endless adventure.
 
Bradley Garrett has evaded urban security to experience cities like London, Paris, Berlin, and Las Vegas in ways beyond the conventional boundaries of everyday life. Here, he shares his escapades with the London Consolidation Crew as well as his urbanist manifesto about the new ways of belonging in, and understanding, the metropolis. Combining philosophy, politics, and adventure, this fascinating travelogue is a passionate declaration to “explore everything.”
