Across London there are over 900 official blue plaques, celebrating a diverse and curious collection of London residents from many periods of history – from Charles Dickens and Winston Churchill to Emmeline Pankhurst and Jimi Hendrix.

This book – the first official, portable guide to London's plaques – reveals the many layers of history and personality behind the busy streets of London. Inside are insights into the figures themselves – including artists, film stars, authors, war heroes, politicians, musicians and scientists – as well as details of the buildings and districts in which creative masterpieces were crafted, new discoveries made and history-making events took place. Fully illustrated and accompanied by area maps, it will entertain and inform – and help you to explore the streets of London and its blue plaques.

The London blue plaque scheme has been run by English Heritage since 1986.
