London's Truly Strangest Tales, Paperback Book


More extraordinary but true stories from London's history. In this fascinating follow-up to his bestselling London's Strangest Tales, Tom Quinn makes a further foray into the weirder side of the capital, bringing us a splendiforous collection of bizarre-but-true stories that explore a thousand years of London's history. Discover the ghosts that stalk West End theatres, the mysterious mummy who lives in a City church cupboard, and secret tunnels under the Thames.

Find out why there's a TARDIS at Earl's Court, why frogs once rained from the skies, and why the mulberry tree in the gardens at Buckingham Palace isn't quite what it was supposed to be. A dip-in-and-outable treasure trove of London lore, London's Truly Strangest Tales is both an ideal gift for dyed-in-the-wool Londoners who want to find out more about the great city they live in, and the perfect souvenir for people just passing through.
