Review:

"A delightful and informative addition to the capital's literary legacy...Winn's touch is always light, and his knowledge is never overbearing, so the selections and observations remain unfailingly interesting... I Never Knew That About London will not fail to enhance months, even years, of gentle urban exploration...Any number of morning or weekend outings can be constructed from these rich pages." (Rory MacLean Guardian online)

"a winner; a must have and will not lie neglected choked with dust; rather it will terminate in well dog eared tatters *****" (Gary Busby Amazon)

"...this enthralling miscellany guides readers through the heart of the capital city." ( The Times)

Book Description:
