Return to London by Terence Jenkins

 (The Black Prince)
Did you know that there were two palaces in Croydon, or that Queen Elizabeth 1 stayed there many times, and swore at Archbishop Parker's wife? (She didn't approve of married archbishops).  Do you know who the Black Prince is?  If you read this entertaining series of historical vignettes, you will!

This is an enjoyable and informative set of articles about historical places and people with helpful photos.  Perfect for travellers, it serves as a background to many of the areas of London, such as Kennington Common.  The only problem is that there was sometimes too much information for me to absorb, but I am feeling stressed at the moment.   Perhaps, it could have done with a bit more editing.
