Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

¡¡Participe en la reunión mensual de los bigotudos más extravagantes del país, recójase en el cementerio para perros de Hyde Park, asista a la misa de los payasos, visite un verdadero templo masónico, vaya al circo en una antigua central eléctrica, rece en una iglesia flotante, haga vela en un antiguo embalse de agua, descubra la roca de donde Arturo retiró la espada de Excalibur, quédese de piedra ante el pene sagrado de un faraón, juegue en el último terreno de petanca sobre hierba de la City, admire un extraño enderezador de pepinos, una sirena disecada o un corazón de vaca, descubra los bares y los restaurantes más insólitos!!… De día como de noche, Londres sólo desvela sus excentricidades y sus secretos a los habitantes y viajeros que saben salirse de los caminos marcados. Pero, es necesario saber dónde ir…Una guía indispensable para los que creían que conocían bien Londres o para los que desean descubrir la otra cara de la ciudad.

Mingle with the most extravagant handlebar moustaches in Britain, pay your respects at the dog cemetery in Hyde Park, visit a Masonic temple, take trapeze lessons in a former power station, pray in a floating church, sail on a disused reservoir, discover the stone from which Arthur drew Excalibur, admire the sacred penis of a pharaoh, take aim on the Citys last bowling green, go stargazing at Greenwich Observatory, examine a rare cucumber straightener, a stuffed mermaid or a cows heart...

 

Far from the crowds and the usual clichés, London still holds hidden treasures for those who know how to wander off the beaten track.

 

An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew London well, or who would like to discover the hidden face of the city.
