The Automobile Association started life in London in 1905, when a group of early motoring enthusiasts met in London's Trocadero. Premises in Leicester Square were used from 1908 as the meeting point for the membership, which grew rapidly in number. Members received publications regarding recommended driving routes, hotels and restaurants etc. Heavily involved with road safety throughout its life, the AA decided in the 1990s to expand its publication activities. The company made wise use of the experience it had gained since 1912 in route mapping and now produces some of the finest touring guides available to destinations worldwide. These days an AA recommendation increases custom and is a coveted prize for a hotel or restaurant, testimony to the respect held for the AA by the public.
