London's Truly Strangest Tales

Extraordinary but True Stories from Almost 2,000 Years of London's History

Tom Quinn

Homing in on London’s square mile but with excursions to the suburbs, Tom Quinn reveals the extraordinary stories behind some of the capital’s buildings and characters. After noting Roman remains and medieval sites, he explores oddities such as the grasshopper statue on the Royal Exchange, the Pimlico house where Mozart is thought to have composed his first symphony, and why millions of gallons of water were pumped around the foundations of St John’s Church in Waterloo.
