London Peculiars: A Guide to the City's Offbeat Places

Peter Ashley | ACC Books

Discover a London that’s not shown in regular tour books. London Peculiars is guaranteed to show you a side to the city you’ve not seen before, whether you’re just visiting or a long-lived local. Full of secrets that are hidden in plain sight, from the tent-shaped tomb designed for Victorian explorer Sir Richard Burton by his widow, Isabel Arundel Gordon; to what may be the last surviving porter's rest in London; to a stone niche by a long-demolished foundling hospital where almost 15, 000 infants were discarded over the course of the 18th century.
