Barnes and Noble Indiebound
A myth-busting ride through London’s history and the city's character!
Think that the tower that holds Big Ben is called St Stephen's Tower? Think again – it was called the Clock Tower until 2012. Packed with details on real London history, this highly entertaining read explodes a range of misconceptions about London. Covering the city’s arts, entertainment, food, drink, landmarks, royalty, traditions, and politics, it gives you a fascinating insight into the true capital.
