Blue plaques, bearing names both familiar and intriguing, can be found all across the capital. From BOB MARLEY to ALAN TURING, VIRGINIA WOOLF to VINCENT VAN GOGH, MAHATMA GANDHI to EMMELINE PANKHURST, the plaques celebrate an incredible range of London’s past residents. Whether they be scientists, sports stars, artists, actors, inventors or politicians – this revised and updated English Heritage guide reveals, with wit and insight, the stories of London’s most extraordinary men and women and the homes in which they lived.

Publisher Review

`The blue plaque helps us make poetry from the everyday, infusing the hard materials of the city with the feeling of lives lived: a memory of the past making the present richer.' Antony Gormley, The Guardian | `If people want to find out about our London history, they can go and stand for a minute outside and look at a house where we know that person has lived - I think that's just wonderful.' Dame Judi Dench
