111 Places in London

That You Shouldn't Miss

GUIDE

London is strange and beautiful, conventional and crazy, traditional and subversive. This book celebrates its diversity, showing you Little Ben, a fake 10 Downing Street, a bridge that rolls itself up and God’s Own Junkyard. Find out why did Robbie Williams feuded with his next-door neighbour, where Lenin und Julian Assange campaigned for their beliefs, how the city commemorates the Queen Mother and Princess Diana, and where a true gentleman buys his wine and umbrellas.
