Time Out City Guides: our insider travel guidebooks

Wherever you’re travelling, our pocket-sized City Guides are your best friend in the city. Here’s the lowdown on Time Out’s travel guidebooks

By Time Out editors

If you’re paying a visit to one of the world’s greatest cities, then browsing the Time Out website or picking up one of our magazines isn’t the only way to get clued up on all the great things to do while you’re there. For a handy guide to the essential stops in London, New York, Berlin, Amsterdam and plenty of other locations around the world, it’s well worth checking out our range of Time Out City Guide travel guidebooks, published by Crimson.

Put together with the help of local writers and experts from each city as well as our own Time Out editors, our pocket-sized guidebooks will take you off the tourist trail and into the spots where the locals really hang out, helping you discover all the unmissable things and places to eat, drink, do, shop, stroll and experience the city’s culture scene. There’s also a condensed guide for each city, the Shortlist, which is less comprehensive and more focused on the highlights. Whichever version you’re using, local knowledge and insider tips will help you skip the boring stuff, get more for your money and live like a local.

With area guides taking you around each part of the city and additional sections unpacking the city’s history, architecture and vibe, it’s the perfect handbook for visitors, newcomers and even locals to get the most out of the most exciting cities on the planet. Check out our full list of Time Out City Guides below.
