London is full of strange sights. Where was a king of Corsica buried in Soho? Which wine dealer has records of its customer's body weight? Can a subterranean cycle route lead to Scotland? And why was a high-rise block designed by James Bond's mortal enemy? London is a vibrant and colourful city full of life where cultural boundaries blur. There are long-standing regal boutiques next to trendy fashion stores, palaces, other historical buildings, exclusive Gentlemen's clubs, and - last but not least - cozy Pubs welcoming both first time visitors and regulars. London ist eine Metropole mit einer unerschöpflichen Vielfalt, eine Stadt für Superreiche, schräge Modedesigner, Garten- und Bierfreunde, Royalisten und Immigranten aus der ganzen Welt. Doch wussten Sie, dass es auch ein Versteck für Polizisten ist? Oder dass hier ein Kriegsschiff zum Kaufhaus recycelt wurde? Und dass selbst Katzen und dem deutschen König von Korsika in dieser ausgeflippten Stadt ein Denkmal gesetzt wurde? Dass die Briten einen Hang zum Skurrilen haben, ist hinlänglich bekannt - doch Sie werden sehen, dass Londons Straßen und Grünflächen selbst Einheimischen fast täglich neue Überraschungen bieten. John Sykes was born in Southport, Lancashire, studied in Oxford and Manchester and lived in London before moving to Germany and making his home in Cologne. He has written and translated books about London, including one in the form of a Sherlock Holmes mystery, and is the author of several travel guides about the British Isles.

Liverpool's unique history as an international port and a cultural melting pot has given it a character all its own. The city has produced music that conquered the world and is home to more historic buildings than any other British metropolis outside London. It features two magnificant cathedrals and many world famous museums. But beyond it's renowned exterior, is a labryinth of places hidden and unknown. This deliciously offbeat guidebook will lead you to a different Liverpool: down tunnels, up skyscrapers, and into secret bars, speciality shops, and disused factories. You will see Balenciaga trainers and football trophies, rolling bridges and disappearing statues, Liver Birds and suitcases, extravagent cakes and cast-iron churchs. Explore Britain's first mosque. Wander a roof garden of wild flowers, where different species bloom each month of the year. Marvel at the world's most expensive book or largest brick building (27 million bricks!). Relax in a hip tea bar with over 50 varieties of tea (loose leaf, naturally); or visit a place where you can drink Dandelion and Burdock with your fish and chips. Think you know Liverpool? Think again! Whether you're a first-time tourist, a repeat visitor, or a longtime local, prepare to be charmed and surprised by 111 eccentric and unusual places you'd never expect to find in the city best known for football and the Fab Four.

Entdecken Sie rollende Brücken, hippe Tee-Bars und verschwundene Statuen.

What sort of curious place would give its shortest street the longest name? Or build a dazzling gold-lined dome - and hide it from view? The same mixed-up metropolis that was once the capital of England - and also birthplace of its most infamous terrorist... Even if you were the world's most imaginative storyteller, you couldn't make York up. The city is stranger than any fiction. But to find its oddities and secrets you'll need to step off the beaten tourist path and explore its footstreets and alleys, known locally as snickelways. Be warned, the journey might throw up a few dark moments, from the Bitchdaughter Tower to the spikes upon which traitors' heads were impaled. Yet you'll also encounter the traces of many local colourful characters, from an Oscar-winning actor to a dastardly plotter, from assorted stone cats to a rather rude ghost. You can browse the shops in the street that inspired Harry Potter's Diagon Alley and tour remarkable retailers like Duttons For Buttons and the Banana Warehouse, which sells pretty much everything - except bananas; or celebrate in the city that hosted Britain's first Christmas and is home to Ulph's Drinking Horn. With 2,000 years of history to discover, there is a surprise around every corner - if you know where to look... Welcher kuriose Ort gab der kürzesten Straße den längsten Namen? Wo feierte man das erste Weihnachtsfest Englands? Und wieso kann man im Banana Warehouse (fast) alles kaufen - nur keine Bananen? York ist seltsamer als jede Geschichte, die man sich ausdenken kann. Wenn Sie seine Kuriositäten und Geheimnisse entdecken wollen, müssen Sie sich abseits der Touristenpfade bewegen. Aber Achtung: Die Reise könnte ein wenig schaurig werden! Besuchen Sie den Bitchdaughter Turm. Oder die fähle, auf die die Köpfe von Verrätern gespießt wurden. Finden Sie die Spuren der vielen lokalen und schrägen Charaktere - vom Oscar-Preisträger über eine Reihe von Steinkatzen bis hin zu einem ziemlich ruppigen Gespenst. Chris Titley is an award-winning journalist and writer. During his time as features editor at the Yorkshire Evening Press he wrote a weekly column, two books, and a number of supplements on the history of York. Since turning freelance in 2006 he has written for the Guardian, the Times Educational Supplement and Yorkshire Life. Chris also researched and wrote the 50,000-word text for the History of York website on behalf of the city's Museums Trust, and a biography of the city's confectionery pioneer Joseph Rowntree. He is co-founder and editor of the online news magazine YorkMix. Chris Titley ist ein preisgekrönter Journalist und Schriftsteller.

It details everything from a quirky homage to 11th-century Lady Godiva, to the remnants of the walled city of the English Civil War that spawned the phrase 'sent to Coventry'. From the remnants of the ruined cathedral to the boho Fargo village, from the origins of the influential Two-Tone music style born here, to the impact of UK City of Culture 2021 status, it's all uncovered inside.

This is because England's biggest county is also England's most epic and most historically exciting. It has everything: unimaginably beautiful countryside, derelict castles, cliff-hugging coastlines, brutally bleak moors, quirkily quaint villages, wondrously winding waterways and industrial monsters of cities. Many of the most interesting episodes in English history have happened here: the Wars of the Roses, the English Civil War, the birth of the industrial revolution, the rise of the Labour movement. But when people think of Yorkshire they also think of the unusual and the unsung: Bettys delightful tea rooms, cricket at Scarborough, the windswept steps of Whitby Abbey, the steam railway of the Railway Children, Mother Shipton's Cave, and racing at Doncaster and York. Yorkshire has also given birth to some of the greatest and most talented figures in English history: Brian Clough, Harold Wilson, John Wycliffe, William Wilberforce, the Brontë Sisters, David Hockney and Barbara Hepworth.

-An anthropological journey, narrated in photographs, that tells the story of the Lunda people of modern-day Congo The Lunda are dignified people, powerful and faithful to their traditions. Their civilization was one of the largest in Africa in the 18th and mid-19th century, and it remains vibrant in the 21st. In Musumba, their imperial capital located in the South of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lunda rites continue to be practiced with fervor by the population, and the dynasty of kings still holds renowned traditional authority. The Italian photographer Angelo Turconi, who is well acquainted with the region, wanted to show the vitality of these Bantu people, who maintain a strong attachment to their culture and social structure despite the border divisions which occurred during the colonization period. Together with John Anthony, also a photographer, and anthropologist Manuela Palmeirim, who has authored a documented study on the Lunda culture, Turconi takes us on a journey to a part of Africa which preserves many ancient traditions and yet is firmly rooted in the present. Text in English and French.
