London's Strangest Tales Summary

London's Strangest Tales: Extraordinary but true stories from over a thousand years of London's History by Tom Quinn

London's Strangest Tales takes a walk on London's weirder side with an absorbing collection of curious tales from one of the world's greatest cities. This fascinating book is packed with amazing things you didn't know about Britain's capital, like the fact that it's still forbidden to run, carry an umbrella or whistle in the Burlington Arcade, and the fat lamppost at the corner of Trafalgar Square that is secretly a tiny prison cell. And did you know that the entrance to Buckingham Palace you see from the Mall is actually the back door and not the front? The stories within these pages are bizarre, fascinating, hilarious and, most importantly, true.

Revised, redesigned and updated for a new generation of London-lovers, this book is a brilliant alternative guide to the city, whether you're a visitor, a daily commuter or one of its 8 million inhabitants.
