About this title

Synopsis:

In this lavishly illustrated book bestselling author Christopher Winn takes you on a captivating journey around London. Traveling through the villages and districts that made up the world's most dynamic metropolis, I Never Knew That About London unearths the hidden gems of legends, firsts, inventions, adventures, and birthplaces that shape the city's sometimes turbulent past. See the Chelsea river views that inspired Turner in his final years, explore London's finest country house in Charlton, unearth the secrets of the mother of Parliaments, and discover the village that gave its name to a car and the Russian word for station. With gorgeous colour illustrations throughout, this miscellany reveals the steeple which became the model for the traditional wedding cake, the home of the sandwich, and the house which was home to Handel and Jimi Hendrix. Brimming with stories and snippets, Winn provides a spellbinding insight into the history of the capital. This beautiful book is guaranteed to inform and amuse in equal measure.
