a noisy environment listening to loud music. Perhaps they want to
be somewhere where they can read a book, or sit and linger for a
while. QUIET LONDON is a guide to quiet places to meet, drink, eat,
swim, rest, shop, sleep or read. It includes interesting,
attractive places where people don't have to strain to hear
each other speak. There are short descriptions for each venue,
alongside travel and contact details and simple but atmospheric
photographs in colour and black and white.
