London's Strangest Tales: The Royal Palaces by Iain Spragg

(Hampton Court, Wikimedia Commons)

This is an enjoyable, light-hearted and witty collection of stories about the royal palaces. Read about Cardinal Wolsey's fear of spiders at Hampton Court, King Charles I's betrayal by his dog and the first escapee from the Tower of London.  This is a great book to while away the time, especially for royalty lovers!

I recommend this if you want to learn more about English history and royalty in an easy way, or as a book to read on your travels in 'the Old Country'.
