In this follow-up to his bestselling London's Strangest Tales, Tom Quinn delves even deeper into the endlessly fascinating and sometimes bizarre history of one of the world's great capitals. More London's Strangest Tales explains why Napoleon's nose is built into the structure of Admiralty Arch, why the schoolboys at Westminster play football with a real pancake and why at least one English king enjoyed dressing up in women's clothes.
