Welcome to Rather Splendid London Walks from Joolz Guides, in which I wander around London telling you fascinating facts! In this book of 20 walks I will show you some of the fun, interesting, weird and ridiculous things I’ve noticed on my travels around London
In Rather Splendid London Walks you can join Joolz himself on 20 fun-packed walks around the city, picking out the top sights, sounds and secret features that you wouldn’t spot without an expert guide on hand.
On your journey you will learn about London's finest palaces, historic houses and murky drinking dens, visiting unscrupulous politicians, literary figures, scientific heroes, notorious criminals, and stars of the stage and screen along the way. Highlighting historical features and oddities en route, including stink pipes, cattle troughs and parish boundary markers, Joolz has more tales, facts and anecdotes than you've had hot dinners.
From Pimlico to Peckham, Holland Park to Highgate, Southwark to Soho, Joolz Guides unveils the hidden gems and fantastic follies around every corner of the metropolis.
