London is one of the world's most exciting cities, but it's also one of the noisiest; a bustling, chaotic, frenetic, over-crowded, manic metropolis of over 8 million people, where it can be difficult to find somewhere to grab a little peace and quiet. Nevertheless, if you know where to look London has a wealth of peaceful places. Peaceful Places contains over 200 of the author's and his friends', colleagues', and acquaintances' favorite locations throughout the city.
