Behind the London of the sanitized heritage industry, there is a London of esoteric secrets, of obscure institutions and of half-forgotten locations. Occult London reveals the city's secret history. Characters introduced include Elizabethan magus John Dee, architect Christopher Wren nd church-builder Hawksmoor, Theosophist Madame Blavatsky and occult bad-boy Aleister Crowley. The reader is also given a tour of notable esoteric sites - from the well-known (like the British Museum) to the obscure (like Bunhill Fields, formerly known as the 'Bone Hill). A useful pocket-sized guide, it is for anyone considering a tour around London's esoteric heritage.
