London is big and can be baffling, but don't worry if you don't know a buskin from a firkin. This is the book to put you right -- how to read up in advance, how to get there, settle in and keep safe on the streets, how to meet the people and find out the famous. Saunter over London Bridge with its dozens of shops and houses. Wonder at Whitehall, Europe's largest palace. Revere the tombs of kings in Westminster Abbey. Tour the Tower of London -- an archive, armoury, mint, menagerie, prison and jewel house all in one building. Watch the finest plays and players at the Rose Theatre and marvel at the bustle of business in the Royal Exchange. Go down to Greenwich to stand on the deck of the Golden Hind, the ship that sailed round the world.

London is the magnet for the talents of a nation stirring to greatness. Shakespeare bestrides the stage. At Elizabeth's dazzling court Ralegh and Essex are rivals for her favour. From the shadows Dr Dee, mathematician and magician, proffers secret counsel to the Queen.
