If you love London, then this is your book, mate. Within these pages are hundreds of facts, figures, stories, quotes, jokes, and anecdotesfrom its earliest times, when hippos swam the Thames and elephants lived in Trafalgar Square, right up to the present day. Find out whose head fell off London Bridge into his daughter’s lap, what goes on at the Horseshoe and Faggott Cutting Ceremony, who sold Buckingham Palace to a tourist, which Londoner embalmed his wife and displayed her in a glass case in his living room, and how many policeman you can fit in Nelson’s Column.
