    A great little book jam-packed full of interesting stories about the Underground station names and the areas of London that share their names. I bought this book just before a long weekend sightseeing in London and I really enjoyed finding out so many fascinating things about London - I read it whilst travelling about on the Tube and it made the trip all the more interesting. I'd recommend this book to anyone planning a trip to London or anyone whose ever wanted to know the history behind the Underground's station names.
