London's Strangest Tales: The Thames

Iain Spragg

Some surprising tales of the Thames are already familiar, such as the frost fairs of the 17th and 18th centuries – one even featured in Doctor Who. This book is a collection of anecdotes and trivia from the river's history, from the horrors of prison ships moored in the estuary to the delights of Handel's Water Music, played to the king on barges in 1717. Portico's Strangest series.
