Book Review: London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

In the course of my career, I’ve been very fortunate to personally connect, via social media and in person, with authors whose work I’ve admired for years. Among my very favorite and most respected is Janelle McCulloch, author of Paris: An Inspiring Tour of the City’s Creative Heart and numerous other travel, decor and lifestyle titles. Thus, I’m thrilled and honored to share with you her latest release: London Secrets. How gorgeous is that cover?

London Secrets by Janelle McCulloch

As with her other books, London Secrets is a rich mix of luscious photography and thoughtful, in-depth writing based on exhaustive research into lesser known gems of this fabulous city. I’ve been traveling to London since I was a teenager, and lived in the city on two different occasions, so would say I know the city well. But this book introduced me to a fascinating array of new delights.

My favorite section (of course) covers botanical spaces, which can be found in unexpected locations throughout the metropolis.

Gardens, florists, bookstores, fabric and decor outlets, antique shops, boutique hotels and beautiful restaurants are abundantly featured. I’ve just returned from London but this book makes me want to jump right on a plane back. As a guide for planning a visit to the city, you’ll find more than you can fit in even a lengthy trip. And if traveling to London is not in your immediate schedule, this book will give you a marvelous armchair adventure. As stylish and fascinating as the city itself, this is a must-have addition to any travel library.

  • Great review on a wonderful book! I really loved London Secrets and nothing would please me more than to take a copy to London for a couple of weeks and visit all the amazing places the Janelle has discovered and shared.

  • Dearest Georgianna,
    I’m sincerely overjoyed by staying with you for a while this morning !
    First of all let me say that this book sounds truly wonderful and your review is stunning, thank you for sharing your inner beauty once again, darling friend !

    I’ve been absent for a few weeks, with the end of August I was truly far busy with the Short Lets and the works in the gardens and in my parents’ home, so I had to give up with my blog, alas, but I’m back again for a few days, things are coming back to their usual routine :) !

    Wishing you a most lovely remainder of your week,
    I’m sending blessings on your way,
    with my dearest love

    XOXO Dany

    Dear Georgianna,

    I have been on deadline for a big book so I’ve been away from social media for a while, but a Google Alert told me about your wonderful blog post on LONDON SECRETS.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this! You are always so kind and generous with your information and recommendations. I’m touched and thrilled you love this book, and hope you continue to use it for many more London trips.

    I love your books too, and have given 6 away as gifts, including one to my publisher!

    I hope your new projects are going well, and wish you all the best for them. You deserve all the success you receive!

    Hope to catch up soon, either in London or the US.

    Sending a big hug of gratitude!
    Janelle xx

    Hello Georgianna,
    I am a true big fan of your beautiful photography. I have a copy of Paris in Bloom at home, it is luxurious and I love it.

    I am looking forward to buying more of your floral calenders :-).

    Much love from Huda
