How often have you seen images of London's famous sights that look and feel flat and lifeless? "360[degrees]" is a totally new concept, a way of seeing the world in the round. With specially-commissioned pictures taken as if you were at the centre of the scene, you can see all around some of the greatest sites in Britain's capital city, from inside and out. The iconic Houses of Parliament; Soho's nightlife, bustling Smithfield's Market and the new Olympic stadium are just some of the scenes that take on a fascinating new perspective. Skyline images contain annotated landmarks to guide you around the panorama; and details from the sites complete the picture, providing an all-encompassing look at London's most famous places. "360[degrees] London" is the definitive photographic guide to this great city - from every angle.
