Put one of these three new city guides on your pre-christ­mas wishlist Lon­don Un­cov­ered: Sixty Un­usual Places to Ex­plore by Mark Daly and Peter Daze­ley (Frances Lin­coln, £30) is an ex­cel­lent book for those of us who can’t see for look­ing. Even life­long Lon­don­ers will be amazed at what has been in front of their noses all along – from sub­ter­ranean li­braries to quirky mu­se­ums. East Lon­don Food by Rosie Bir­kett and He­len Cath­cart (Hox­ton Mini Press, £26) proves there’s more to Hack­ney’s food and drink scene than trendy lat­tes. Lon­don Precincts (Hardie Grant, £17.99) is a vi­brantly il­lus­trated bi­ble for new­com­ers to Lon­don, by Fiona Mccarthy. It takes read­ers round the me­trop­o­lis neigh­bour­hood by neigh­bour­hood, point­ing out must-visit mar­kets and the odd sur­prise, such as Man­darin Ori­en­tal’s bar­gain burg­ers.
