Quirky London: A Guide to over 300 of the City's Strangest Sights



The British are famous for their eccentricities and London is no exception, with an abundance of bizarre and curious places and stories. Newcomers to London have a wealth of world-famous attractions to keep them occupied for a month of Sundays, which are more than adequately covered in a plethora of standard guidebooks. What Eccentric London does is take you off the beaten path to seek out the more unusual places that often fail to register on the radar of both visitors and residents alike, while also highlighting unexpected and often overlooked aspects and attractions of some of London's more famous tourist sites. Eccentric London includes some of the city's most unusual buildings, striking public artworks, outrageous museum and gallery exhibits, hauntings (human and animal), legends and much more. Entries range from Britain's oldest door to the beginning of body-snatching, from dummy house fa ades to London's unluckiest spot, from a legal brothel to the capital's most haunted theatre, and from the original skull and crossbones to what has a strong claim to be London's campest statue. We hope you enjoy discovering the bizarre and curious secrets of London as much as we did.
