Charting the quirky past of one of the most important cities in the world, "London: A Very Peculiar History" will challenge what you thought you knew and blow your mind with things you most certainly didn't. From Roman roads to the congestion charge, this title takes a whistlestop tour of iconic London landmarks and eras, whilst poking its head round the corner of a back alley to see what's really been going on behind the scenes. Alongside the Tope Ten Tourist Attractions you'll find curious recipes for cockney food (such as jellied 'iwz'), descriptions of London's 'lost buildings', and lists of royal residences, famous markets and classic film scenes featuring London landmarks. Featuring humourous cartoon-style illustrations and amusing captions and speech bubbles, "London: A Very Peculiar History" tells the untold tale of Britain's greatest tourist attraction, busiest commercial district and home to the Royals.
