Journey to Crossrail: Railways Under London, From Brunel to the Elizabeth Line

Paperback
by Halliday, Stephen
Why did London have to wait so long for a main line railway beneath its streets? For a few years in the mid-nineteenth century, Isambard Kingdom Brunel's broad gauge Great Western trains ran from Reading to Faringdon. Now, after many false starts, his vision is being realised as the Elizabeth Line carries passengers from Reading to the City once again and beyond Essex to Kent, using engineering that would h...

The Worst Street in London

by Rule, Fiona
Halfway up Commercial Street, one block away from Spitalfields Market, lies an anonymous service road. The average pedestrian wouldn't even notice it existed. But unlikely though it may seem, this characterless, 400ft strip of tarmac was once Dorset Street - the most notorious thoroughfare in the capital; the worst street in London and the haunt of protestant firebrands, thieves, con-men, pimps, prostitutes...

From Amourette to Zal: Bizarre and Beautiful Words from Europe: (For When English Just Won't Do)

Hardback
by Rawlings, Alex
Fjaka: the sublime state of aspiring to do absolutely nothing. Warmduscher: a `warm showerer', meaning a bit of a wimp. Tener mano izquierda: literally `to have a left hand'; to be skilfully persuasive. For all the richness of the English language there are some nuances that other languages capture much better, whether it's a phrase that beautifully articulates a feeling, a wonderfully understated insult t...

As both a major port and the nation's capital, it was almost inevitable that commerce became the bedrock on which the city has risen to be one of the world's greatest modern marketplaces. Many of today's street names remind the observant pedestrian of the commercial centres t...
