about

London Uncoveredopens the doors to sixty of the capital's most intriguing places, all visitable but not widely known. Peter Dazely has photographed museums of the unusual, places of worship, palaces of entertainment and some of the most historic and ornate shops, houses and hostelries in the city. Collectively, Dazeley's images form a picture of a London which is strange, gaudy, grand and inventive, an endlessly fascinating world city with its own unique character. Mark Daly describes the history and the character of each place, uncovering a wealth of stories.
