London's shadowed alleyways, ancient buildings and misty open spaces simply swarm with phantoms - spirits of the famous and the forgotten, the lovelorn, the loveless, the damned, and the damnable. Paranormal London takes the bold ghost seeker on a hair-raising journey to visit and explore some of the capital's spookiest places. We visit the haunts of murderers and sail on a phantom boat. There are close encounters with chilling manifestations at infamous No. 50 Berkeley Square and you can hear wails and tormented screams from Jack the Ripper's eternally restless victims as they roam the East End's cobbled streets. You can find a headless duke, visit the graves of plague victims and come into contact with an unseen force that tries to push you downstairs. Many of the city's most famous landmarks are haunted, but hundreds of lesser-known sites claim paranormal happenings - pubs, hotels, parks and tunnels, churches, roads, Underground stations, banks, cinemas, council estates and the lake in St James's Park. If you are not a true believer in the paranormal when you start to read this book, you will be by the end.

Spooky, gruesome, weird but true things about one of the world's greatest cities come alive in The A-Z of Curious London.

Why did a dentist keep his dead wife on view in a shop window? Where did a shopkeeper murder 150 customers? Which Queen showed her bosom to an Ambassador? Why was a man arrested for wearing a top hat? In the City proper, why is no thoroughfare called a road? To sum up, eccentrics, legends, folklore, murders, scandals, ghosts, incredible characters and oodles of wow factor, it's all here.
Invent verb; to produce or contrive something previously unknown by the use of ingenuity or imagination. The world would be a much poorer place without our great British inventions - from catseyes to crossword puzzles, tarmac to telephones, steam engines to shorthand, British inventors have led the world with their ingenious (and sometimes slightly insane) ideas. The Brits are a creative lot: entrepreneur Hubert Cecil Booth invented the `Puffing Billy', the first powered vacuum cleaner; John Walker was the bright spark who developed matches in 1827, coating the end of a piece of stick with chemicals which, when rubbed against a rough surface, burst into flames; and where would we be without flush loos? We have Sir John Harrington to thank for those, not Thomas Crapper as many maintain - although Crapper was in fact a nineteenth-century plumber who patented a few bathroom fittings of his own. These are called eureka moments, when chance and inspiration combine to create something wonderful. So, without further ado, let us take a closer look at those brilliant, sometimes slightly bonkers Brits who have done so much to not only improve our daily lives, but also change the world around us.
