Where can you find walrus bones, vampire stories and inspiration for red telephone boxes? And since when do you see skateboards and mobile phones in roman mosaics? London's gardens and parks form the green lung of the multimillion housing capital, but also its heart and soul. Londoners commemorate their beloveds on park benches, they volunteer to keep up community gardens and nature reserves, and they get upset when snails attack their favorite plant. The city's 400-plus green spaces are not only testament to the English love of gardening; they are also steeped in history. Kings hunted here, airships were built in London parks, and many famous Londoners are buried in graveyards-turned-gardens. Our guide leads the way into the unknown: dark corners of major parks, enchanted green paradises, and tiny gardens tucked away in rubbish skips or on the rooftops.
Almost everybody knows Big Ben, the British Museum, Buckingham Palace, and the Tower Bridge. But the secret London which shapes the flair of the capital of the British Empire more than anything else is getting harder and harder to find. This guide elucidates unknown aspects of well-known places, but also explores the London unknown to foreigners and, in part, to natives, and its unique stories. Such as bars with noble origins going back for centuries; listed concrete fortresses; 300 year-old wine shops and synagogues; mosques and Buddhist temples; a tree planted in 1802, the lowest mighty branches of which are no higher than your head; a medieval cemetery for pariahs; a street lantern which has been lit for more than 100 years; the monument to 10,000 Jewish children saved from the Nazis, and one for the Great Fire of 1666; the police den on Trafalgar Square; legal and illegal street art; a crypt in which skulls and bones are arranged in a checkerboard pattern; or the secluded place where Paul McCartney concealed his firm. Unknown London from the Middle Ages until today - brand new.

What sort of curious place would give its shortest street the longest name? Or build a dazzling gold-lined dome - and hide it from view? The same mixed-up metropolis that was once the capital of England - and also birthplace of its most infamous terrorist... Even if you were the world's most imaginative storyteller, you couldn't make York up. The city is stranger than any fiction. But to find its oddities and secrets you'll need to step off the beaten tourist path and explore its footstreets and alleys, known locally as snickelways. Be warned, the journey might throw up a few dark moments, from the Bitchdaughter Tower to the spikes upon which traitors' heads were impaled. Yet you'll also encounter the traces of many local colourful characters, from an Oscar-winning actor to a dastardly plotter, from assorted stone cats to a rather rude ghost. You can browse the shops in the street that inspired Harry Potter's Diagon Alley and tour remarkable retailers like Duttons For Buttons and the Banana Warehouse, which sells pretty much everything - except bananas; or celebrate in the city that hosted Britain's first Christmas and is home to Ulph's Drinking Horn. With 2,000 years of history to discover, there is a surprise around every corner - if you know where to look... Welcher kuriose Ort gab der kürzesten Straße den längsten Namen? Wo feierte man das erste Weihnachtsfest Englands? Und wieso kann man im Banana Warehouse (fast) alles kaufen - nur keine Bananen? York ist seltsamer als jede Geschichte, die man sich ausdenken kann. Wenn Sie seine Kuriositäten und Geheimnisse entdecken wollen, müssen Sie sich abseits der Touristenpfade bewegen. Aber Achtung: Die Reise könnte ein wenig schaurig werden! Besuchen Sie den Bitchdaughter Turm. Oder die fähle, auf die die Köpfe von Verrätern gespießt wurden. Finden Sie die Spuren der vielen lokalen und schrägen Charaktere - vom Oscar-Preisträger über eine Reihe von Steinkatzen bis hin zu einem ziemlich ruppigen Gespenst.
