Enjoy a fascinating, fact-filled journey through London and discover the stories and secrets of one of the largest cities in the world in this vibrant adaptation of Matteo Pericoli's breathtaking book, LONDON UNFURLED. Matteo's astonishing project, to illustrate a continuous 20 mile journey along the north and south banks of the Thames, took him two years to complete. Now the two 37-foot-long pen-and-ink drawings can be enjoyed in vibrant colour, with eye-opening (and eye-watering) facts; from the battles of Roman London and the Princes in the Tower, to the Gunpowder Plot and the great Victorian stink!
