Books About Town: Riverside TrailThis summer you can find 50 Books About Town benches dotted around London - an inspired idea and a fun way to enjoy the city's sights while inspiring some summer reading. The bench sculptures, designed by local artists and famous names, celebrate London's literary heritage, its famous authors and characters. There are four different trails to explore - the Greenwich, Bloomsbury, the City and the Riverside Trail along the South Bank from Potters Field Park to Waterloo. Can you spot the Axel Scheffler and Julia Donaldson bench, Paddington Bear, or How to Train Your Dragon? They're all on the Riverside Trail which takes in Thames-side sights City Hall and The Shard, More London and the Globe.

City Hall is where the mayor's team works on the implementation of policies devised by the Greater London Authority... More about City Hall
