The Underground Map Book Club features books about London which we have either read ourselves and deserved a five star review or has come recommended via the users on our Facebook page.

London – A travel guide through time is a glorious romp through history. Step back in time and discover the sights, sounds and smells of the British capital through the ages in this enthralling journey into the its rich, teeming and occasionally hazardous past.



Let time traveller Dr Matthew Green be your guide to six extraordinary periods in London - the ages of Shakespeare, medieval city life, plague, coffee houses, the reign of Victoria and the Blitz.

We'll turn back the clock to the time of Shakespeare and visit a savage bull and bear baiting arena on the Bankside.

In medieval London, we'll circle the walls as the city lies barricaded under curfew, while spinning further forward in time we'll inhale the 'holy herb' in an early tobacco house, before peering into an open plague pit.

In the 18th century, we'll navigate the streets in style with a ride on a sedan chair, and when we land in Victorian London, we'll take a tour of freak-show booths and meet the Elephant Man.

You'll meet pornographers and traitors, actors and apothecaries, the mad, bad and dangerous to know, all desperate to show you the thrilling and vibrant history of the world's liveliest city.

Philbeach Gardens Resident (Al Stewart)
Al Stewart, who had huts in the 70s with the sings ’Year of the Cat’ and ’On The Borders’, lived in Philbeach Gdns for a while and referenced Earl’s Court in a couple of his songs.
I lived in Philbeach Gardens from a child until my late teens. For a few years, on one evening in the midst of Summer, you could hear Al Stewart songs ringing out across Philbeach Gardens, particularly from his album ’Time Passages". I don’t think Al was living there at the time but perhaps he came back to see some pals. Or perhaps the broadcasters were just his fans,like me.
Either way, it was a wonderful treat to hear!
