Event description
Join best-seller author Simon Jenkins as he presents his latest book in Leighton’s studio, followed by a Q&A and book signing.

About this Event

Like Simon’s A Short History of England, A Short History of London is a condensed and accessible history, ranging from the settlement of London when it was founded by the Romans and taking us up to the current period. From the prehistoric occupants of the Thames Valley to the preoccupied commuters of today, Simon Jenkins brings together the key events, individuals and trends in London's history to create a matchless portrait of the capital. Based in part on his own witness of the events that shaped the post-war city, and with his trademark colour and authority, he shows above all how London has taken shape over more than two thousand years.
