The Great Fire of London destroyed much of the city, but only six people were killed.
In 1945, a flock of starlings landed on the minute hand of Big Ben and put the time back by five minutes.
There are a dozen secret rivers flowing beneath London. One, the Effra travels under the Oval cricket ground.
Some 80,000 umbrellas are lost annually on the London Underground.
If you find a Cab-driver in London not carrying a bale of hay overboard, he is breaking the law.
All London taxis are "Hackney Carriages" registered and in the olden days this means "Horse-drawn". Regulations stated that no horses should go hungry and therefore insisted that all horse- drawn carriages that were registered as "Hackney Carriage" (mainly Taxis) should carry a bale of hay. That rule has still not been changed hence still applies. Fortunately it is not enforced.
