London Uncovered opens the doors to sixty of the capital's most intriguing places, all visitable but not widely known. Peter Dazely has photographed museums of the unusual, places of worship, palaces of entertainment and some of the most historic and ornate shops, houses and hostelries in the city. Collectively, Dazeley's images form a picture of a London which is strange, gaudy, grand and inventive, an endlessly fascinating world city with its own unique character. Mark Daly describes the history and the character of each place, uncovering a wealth of stories. Praise for Peter Dazeley and Mark Daly's previous book Unseen London: 'A thrilling tour behind the closed doors of the capital city's buildings.' Daily Telegraph 'Dazeley captures the atmosphere of each building to perfection.' Daily Express 'Fascinating.' Fabric magazine 'A joy' Evening Standard
