Primrose Hill, Parliament Hill and Alexandra Palace all make the skyline spotting grade

The high points of the capital explored in a new book

Three of the best spots to view the London skyline are in our local area, a new book reveals. Skyline London, by former journalist and travel guide Caroline Dale, is a guide to the best high points from which to view the capital.

Alexandra Palace, Parliament Hill and Primrose Hill all make the grade of being great places to sit with a picnic and take in the London skyline.

The book looks in every compass direction to serve as a guide to what eager-eyed spotters can see on a clear day.

Skyline London is published by Aurum Press, August 2012, �9.99
