Are you a vintage lover who is living in, or planning a trip to, the capital in the near future? Then you'll need a copy of the new book, The Rough Guide to Vintage London.
Yes, the travel specialists Rough Guides have turned their attention to the huge vintage scene in London and their team of writers (including this Retro To Go contributor), under the expert eye of consultant-editor Wayne Hemingway, have visited over 200 places across the city.
The first part of the guide is organized by area, highlighting the best vintage shops, bars, cafes and resturants in each neighbourhood and offering plenty of ideas for places to be explored. The second part offers a directory listing – an invaluable guide for those who may be dedicated to a particular era or style – or in need of a specific service such as dressmaking or repairs and restoration.
The book is priced at £9.99 and is currently available for £7.99 on Amazon.
