Hello and welcome to London Tangents. A personal blog about the unusual, the unfamiliar, and the unsung histories of this great city and its people.

This blog reflects my random range of interests from 20 years of living and working in London; some historical, some contemporary. I try to update it about once a month, if life doesn’t get in the way.

There are so many great sites and resources available to anyone interested in London history. I’ve listed a few of my favourites in the Links section. Some of them even do guided walks. Industrious!

All posts and most pictures by Julie. I hope you enjoy these ramblings. Let me know via the Contact page, or follow my faffing about on Instagram and Twitter (top of the page).
