Frost Fairs took place frequently on the Thames for 600 years. This is the first book to look in detail at some of the many pictures of those fairs. Feasting and drinking were much in evidence, with oxen being roasted on the ice and the first roundabouts appearing.

Now that global warming has produced blizzards in Athens, who knows when similar Frost Fairs might appear on the Thames?

With forty illustrations, most of them in colour, this book is a must for anyone interested in London's river.
