    Did you know that part of Scotland is actually in London? How about the fact that Big Ben isn't really that big at all? And that London actually has a surprising history of human lavatories..? You can read about all these and more in London's Strangest Tales.

    Full of outlandish oddities from England's capital city, the book looks at some of the most surprising and eccentric traits of London over the past thousand years. It reveals why pepper pots sit atop the National Gallery, discusses why there was a railway devoted entirely to the dead called the Necropolis Railway and uncovers the strange modern-day case of carnivorous pelicans...

    A great little hardback for anyone interested in the unseen side of London's history.
