Over the years we have published a range of city guides, delighting in the perspective that we could bring to cities large and small with a deeper coverage than is offered by many other series. Today we have a small range of carefully selected titles written by hand-picked authors, guides which readers tell us hit the spot. Adrian Phillips’ Budapest is an elegy to the atmospheric charms of the Hungarian capital, while Laurence Philips Lille won Best Guidebook from the Sunday Times and the British Guild of Travel Writers. Nigel Wallis’ Helsinki lifts the lid on the Finnish capital’s quirks and curiosities, and Lucy Mallows’ Bratislava has been praised as ‘an appealing, highly readable companion... a civilised guide to a civilised place’ (Wanderlust magazine). A good city guide should leave you feeling as if you have been gently immersed in a cultural spa and come out exhilarated and refreshed. We hope you find that ours do just that.
