The capital might still be in partial lockdown but at least two London guide books have been released today, 4 May.

Free London provides information on a whole host of attractions that are free to visit in the capital, while London’s Museums and Galleries explores the best there is to offer on the capital’s cultural scene. Both are published by Frances Lincoln, part of The Quarto Group.
