"Fascinating and handsome and informative and all those things...a
SPLENDID book." -- Robert Elms - BBC Radio London, 5 July 2007
'Long brings a genuine pleasure to his subject..and encourages his
readers to look at London with an unceasing curiosity.' -- The London Magazine, November 2006
Marvel at the funky mix of old and new in a book which lifts the lid on London's strangest places.
-- Ben Welch, Docklands 24, 27 June 2007
`Long's a good storyteller and his conversational tone
gives you the sense that he's there with you on
your virtual tour of the city.' -- The Pass, November 2006
From the Author
Since publishing this and its predecessor, Spectacular
Vernacular, it's become apparent that, whilst there are literally thousands
of books on London, old and new, there's a real appetite for ones which go
beyond the obvious. In particular I've discovered I'm not the only one to
spend time wondering what that odd building is, what exactly goes on in
that one over there, or what sort of a madman would build that. Plenty of
people don't notice the odd ones, or hurry by them each morning without
giving them a second thought, but I can't resist finding out what's what,
digging a bit deeper, and as often not I'm rewarded with stories which are
as entertaining as they are strange, as unexpected as they are delightful.
And fortunately, if my postbag is anything to go by, there are plenty more
out there just like me. This book's for them.

of this book can't fail to hook you if you're interested in London. Besides
tunnels, towers and temples, it's packed full of strange houses (old and
new), secret corners, bizarre bits of history and colourful descriptions of
the sort of great places which most of us walk by without noticing everyday
of the week. Not just central London either, but all over.
