About This Book

Join John Rogers as he ventures out into an uncharted London like a redbrick Indiana Jones in search of the lost meaning of our metropolitan existence. Nursing two reluctant knees and a can of Stella, he perambulates through the seasons seeking adventure in our city’s remote and forgotten reaches.


‘We’d rather think of him as the Brian Cox of topology, inspiring wonder and curiosity on esoteric subjects (without using complicated words like topology and esoteric). Buy this book if you have even the merest pebble of interest in your surroundings.’ Londonist

‘Leave the Oyster card at home and set out in your walking shoes with Rogers as a companion – and be prepared to see London in a whole new way.’ Time Out

‘John is endowed with a gentle, humorous wisdom, which is evident throughout these pages… You, like me, could have no better guide than the man who has written this book.’ Russell Brand
