The 244 page Tablet App edition to the best events, new openings and amazing happenings in London in 2013
If you thought there might be a post-Olympic slowdown in London, the LondonTown.com guide to the year ahead will soon put you right. In the year after hosting the landmark sports event, London has a huge wealth of arts and entertainment events, sporting fixtures and new openings to keep visitors happy in 2013. There are 64,192 events featured on LondonTown.com, from blockbuster art exhibitions to West End shows, intimate talks to stadium gigs, the spice is in the huge variety. 2013 is also the year that the Olympic legacy starts to take shape. The first phase of the regeneration of the Olympic infrastructure, turning it from a private zone into a public park with state-of-the-art venues, begins on 27th July and it hosts its first post-Olympic sporting event, RideLondon, in August. Another new opening is The View from The Shard - the highest viewing platform in the city which welcomes its first visitors on 1st February. There's much to look forward to in a year that David Bowie gets a retrospective at the V & A, legendary Londoner Michael Caine turns 80 - with a celebratory exhibition at the Museum of London - and the Queen marks 60 years since her coronation.
Thorough and sexy
Love this book! Everything I need to know for the year ahead in an easy to navigate format. Simple scrolling and no nonsense navigation lets me focus on actually reading the content. Thank you LondonTown! Look forward to the 2014 edition. :-)
Great content, poor execution
The book is great, and very useful for info on what is coming up in London in 2013. It isn't adapted for ipad in any way though - there are no hyperlinks, no search function, no landscape orientation, just a dumb portrait format document. It gets 5 stars for content, but only 3 overall because it is such a pain to use on a tablet.
Loving the funky navigation slider bar at the bottom of the page and the favourites panel. Crisp and elegant layout, punchy artwork, informative, intuitive and fun. Well done, Londontown!
