How to Order


Intrepid traveller Stephen Smith plumbs the hidden depths of the metropolis, wandering through buried treasures from Roman times to the present day. Exploding corpses, the bowels of the Palace of Westminster, the culverts of Hampton Court and the miniature Mail Rail that once distributed 12 million letters a day – Smith’s journey covers the bizarre, the arcane and, always, the intoxicating as he reveals the labyrinthine delights that span the centuries.

What the critics say:

‘The sheer range of information Smith digs up is startling’ – Will Self, Independent
