Why did London Underground once employ a one-legged man to ride up and down the escalators at Earl's Court tube station?

What did Hitler plan to do with Nelson's Column? Why is London's only medieval mummy a prostitute named Clarice la Claterballock?

How did a beer flood in Tottenham Court Road drown nine people?

Where can you see a pair of Queen Victoria's knickers?

Containing chapters covering London past and present; buildings and streets; famous and unexpected Londoners; arts, literature and crime; plus much much more, the 180 lists will amaze, amuse and inform.

More than simply a keepsake for tourists, every self-respecting Londoner needs this book.
