Another year in the Great Indoors down – and another year celebrating London's neighbourhoods in all their idiosyncratic glory.
For the ultimate London fan, a copy of The Alternative Guide to the London Boroughs will provide the perfect festive read. With 33 chapters written by 33 different writers, from columnist Aditya Chakrabortty to the historian Gillian Darley, via playwright Hanif Kureishi and the politician Emma Dent Coad, the Alternative Guide to the London Boroughs is a journey into the neighbourhoods, housing estates and public buildings of London’s rich urban landscape.
In a limited time offer, bundle together a copy of the book with the official Open House 2021 t-shirt, featuring an illustration by Harry Tindale depicting a vibrant market scene. The t-shirts are screen printed in London using non-harmful inks on a garment base made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton by Stanley/Stella, who are accredited by the Fair Wear Foundation, aiming to improve conditions for workers in garment factories.
