Black Plaques London

The definitive guide to London’s dark side.

'Imagine a grown up version of Horrible Histories' The Sunday Times.

Ever felt you’re not being told the whole story? Black Plaques lift the carefully-placed rug and discover a big stain:

• Torture at Westminster Abbey
• Underwear looted from Buckingham Palace
• Putrid gas pumped up Big Ben
• Nazis in Kensington
• Murder in St Paul’s...

Retrospectively rubberneck on London’s least celebrated tales - ones that many might hope were best forgotten. With augmented reality at each site and no skimping on important details, discover where '**it happened'.

But it’s not all misery and gore. Black Plaques immortalise any episode where mankind was not enjoying its finest hour - heroic failures, lewd antics and tragic misfortunes mix with the mysterious, farcical and misguided, topped with a dollop of the downright peculiar.

Over 300 virtual plaques give a compendium of colourful vignettes - little-known to locals let alone visitors, exposing foibles and failings that DON'T get proudly mounted on a wall.

Customer Reviews

Twisted sister

This is an unique guide to London exploring the wacky, the downright weird and the surreal. Who wants boring blue plaques when you can find more entertainment following Londons cruel and dark underbelly, of gruesome corpses and Royal knicker thieves, London will never be the same again.

Well researched, great pictures and witty text, even better you don't have to visit London to use this.

Quirky, but cool

This is a quirky app, full of random, slightly off beat facts about London and its environs. I have yet to try all of the features, but am already planning to use it on a day out in London in a desperate attempt to interest my children in what has gone around them.

Fascinating App

Great for history lovers and offers a fascinating insight into London's darker past
