About the Author

When he is not researching the underworld of British eccentricity, Benedict le Vay works as a sub-editor on the features section of a daily national newspaper. He is author of several Bradt guides: Ben le Vey's Eccentric Britain and Britain from the Rails.


'Those who read it are unlikely ever to look at London, or Londoners the same way again.' Britain Calling 'One of the best (guides to London).' The Mayfair Times 'Beautifully illustrated with lavish colour photography and black and white drawings. Worth buying for the front cover alone.' Essex Courier 'An endlessly fascinating book, written with huge charm, that explores the eclectic curiosities of London past and present.' The Good Book Guide
