Written as though it were a companion for the contemporary tourist (or the time-traveling historian), this entertaining and attractive guide provides the detailed information you'll need to visit Elizabethan London. Find the best way to the capital and where to stay. Saunter over London Bridge, with its dozens of shops and houses built right over the Thames. Glimpse Her Majesty at Whitehall, Europe's largest palace. Watch the finest plays and players at the Rose Theatre, and marvel at the bustle of business in the Royal Exchange. Go down to Greenwich to stand on the deck of the Golden Hind, the ship that Francis Drake sailed around the world. Printed in navy blue ink, the book includes 82 illustrations—16 in color (and several of these spanning two pages).
