A beautifully illustrated gift book to explore the hidden history of curious London on foot or from the armchair.

London's 100 Most Extraordinary Buildings reveals the stories behind the capital’s strangest and most enigmatic buildings. While some are open to the public – if you know who to ask – others are strictly off limits, which only heightens the sense of mystery around them. Still others are so familiar that few ever stop to consider how curious they actually are.

South of the river, for example, the city's widest city at nearly 1,000ft has been favourably compared to the Winter Palace. Elsewhere you can find an arts centre built of old shipping containers, a Victorian explorer lying dead in a tent, literally acres of secret government underground offices, and even a private tunnel used for running cable cars under the Thames. Think you know London? Think again . . .

Book Features:

  • Bespoke illustrations to set this edition apart as a lovely item to own about the peculiarities of the capital.
  • Great gift book for residents, visitors or those simply delighted by the hidden curiosities London has to offer.
  • A brilliant companion to London's 100 Strangest Places (May 2018).
30 b/w illustrations
