Overview


London’s 100 Strangest Places takes a sideways look at the capital, revealing the hidden stories, curious histories and sometimes comic associations behind dozens of sometimes quite familiar places. Typical examples include extensive networks of tunnels running beneath high-street pavements, secret transport networks, streetlamps powered by sewer gas, a street where you can legally drive on the right and even a Nazi memorial sited among the heroes and adventurers of the British Empire. This book forms the very best possible start for anyone who wishes to get off the beaten track and under the skin of the hidden city that is modern-day London.
