Description

Since its creation over 40 years ago, London's Freedom Pass concessionary travel scheme has continued to grow in popularity and there are now over 1 million registered holders. Whether a fruit picker or forager, a rambler or angler, or simply someone who enjoys the quirky charm of a local pub, Bradt's new Freedom Pass is the perfect read to help you get the most out of your Pass. Featuring 25 walks and days-out for Freedom Pass holders, the guide covers an area up to 25 miles from central London, all easily accessible by train, tube or bus. The authors, Mike Pentelow and Peter Arkell, are keen ramblers who can count walking the entire length of the Thames amongst their many adventures. Long time London residents, they are both members of numerous local organisations and societies.
