Freedom Pass London Press Release

New title for September 2014 Freedom Pass London by Mike Pentelow and Peter Arkell.

Written by Hugh Collins


Release: September 2014

Freedom Pass London 

Stroll past the spot where Dylan Thomas once kept a houseboat, visit the station where Mick Jagger and Keith Richards famously met for the first time and discover why Charles Darwin once ate an owl.

Bradt’s new book is particularly targeted at holders of the Freedom Pass – London’s concessionary travel pass, available to residents aged 60 and above – suggesting 25 tailored, special days out they might consider. Covering an area up to 25 miles from central London, the book reveals wildlife hotspots, colourful pubs and little-known historical facts. Bringing to life the people and places along the way, this is much more than a standard walking guide, and encourages people to see their pass as something far more than a ticket to get from A to B. 

Mike Pentelow was editor of Landworker for ten years and is currently editor of Fitzrovia News, giving him a feel for both town and country. Peter Arkell has been a photographer since 1970, covering news, social issues, the environment and sport.
