London’s South Bank – The History

Our next big event is the publication of London’s South Bank – The History. We thought this ambitious book would be ready in autumn 2021, but the sheer complexity of the task has meant postponing its launch until 28 April 2023. Still, we think it’s a winner and we hope you won’t want to miss the opportunity of securing your copy (and supporting Your London Publishing!) NOW. Here is a taster:

What if the South Bank, which already holds London’s centre of gravity, also held the city’s soul? London’s South Bank explores this theme by concentrating on the modern period – from 1600 to the present day. First it examines the social and topographical fabric by taking snapshots of the area under review at different historical periods – 1600, 1770, 1845, and now. This gazetteer, accompanied by reconstructions, maps and historical images, is a work of reference which underpins the book’s investigation. The book also reveals that each of the four South Bank neighbourhoods under scrutiny have surprisingly different characters – Vauxhall and Lambeth; Waterloo; Borough and Bankside; Southwark and Bermondsey. Finally, the last chapter maps out possible answers to the quest announced in the Prologue.
