London's Strangest Tales: Historic Royal Palaces

By Iain Spragg

London’s Royal Palaces are still some of the most visited places in England. A great deal of their official histories are well known. But London’s Strangest Tales: Historic Royal Palaces reveals the bizarre, funny and surreal events and episodes that have occurred over the centuries on the grounds of these beautiful buildings. It gives an alternative history: from the wandering inebriated zebras at the Tower of London, the cricket ball that probably killed a king, and the mystery of Kew’s disappearing mosque.

This is a wonderful collection for anyone with an interest in the history and heritage of our palaces and in London life generally.
